it looks like another form of the blues scale. its just a blues scale with 2 more notes.

It has no official name as far as I know, but it is an A minor pentatonic with some chromatic passing tones.

The bold notes are passing tones. The underlined notes are notes in the blues scale

BTW, nice sig.

Yeah. They're notes that you don't really want to hold for too long, but they create tension and a sense of movement.

They're usually chromatic or diatonic tones that serve to embellish or smooth out melodic motion between or around chord tones.

Thats the "version" of the blues scale I tend to use, I just take all the blues notes from the 3 different blues scales and throw them into one scale, sometimes switching to the natural minor scale too.

It is also a form of the A blues scale:


-----------------------------------------5-8-----------------
------------------------------------5-8----------------------
-------------------------5-[b]6[/b]-7-8----------------------------
-----------------5-[b]6[/b]-7--------------------------------------
---------5-6-7----------------------------------------------
--5--8-------------------------------------------------------


And the Bold notes are the passing notes. In this case, a G# and C#.

It depends on how they're used. G# will sound great when you get to E7 in the blues progression. It is the third. C# will sound great over A7. Other than that, they're pretty much passing tones.
