Lets say i download a backing track that says "Blues in A"
Does that mean that i can use this only to play blues scales
or can i play major and minor scales also.


Also can any one direct me to somewhere i could download backing tracks.
Thanks

You could use the A minor pentatonic over the whole "Blues in A" progression. You could also use the major pentatonic for each chord in the progression: A maj pent over the A7 chords, D maj pent over the D7 chords, and E maj pent over the E7 chords.

sweet, I'm going to check those out when I get home.

If you have some blues in A then you could play the relative minor to the A scale, F# (3 frets down).

Is that F#blues scale or F# major scale?

Can i use both major scale and blues scale in a solo?

You should also experiement a bit, i found that if you have a Blues in A you can for example also play A-Mixolydian over the blues progression, mix that around a bit with some standard blues scales (pentatonic..) and you have a broader sound already!
