So, when playing Parisienne walkways, it feels like its in A minor blues, except for one note, which is confusing the heck out of me:

Here is the opening lead lick:


b
|---10(12)--10---8-7--------------------12---10-------
|--------------------------10-8---6 -------------
|---------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------

The bolded E Sharp, well, it doesnt fit into the Amin scale, unless i make it a dominant 7th,but the 7th in the blues scale is already flattened and thus dominant.

what am i missing here?

You can't figure out the key of song from a handful of notes.

You need to look at the entire song, in particular the chords - Parisienne Walkways is in A minor.

Thanks folks. i got completely wrapped up in the blues scale, and didnt think it could be a minor scale.
