hey everybody i was just wondering if anybody knows what scale and what mode B.B king uses and what most blues scales are played in. I know that usually the blues mode is mixolydian but dont know if thats what BB uses or not. Thanks

I've never listened to BB King, but if it's blues, is there not a chance he's using the pentatonic blues?

^in there the little chunks are called the BB King boxes. I'm sure he used more at times, but just using the boxes you can get a good BBking feel. If you want to expand out the box they'll all fit into the blues or major scale as well(minus the color tones)
