Learn the basic scales in the flats and sharps beside the C scale. Once you have them under control you can go on to diatonic scales and others. Most players never learn the basic scales except for a few, let alone other scale forms. There is no such thing as a 'blues' or 'Jazz' scale etc. There is only normal scales that might suit either.

There actually is a scale commonly known as the blues scale. Its a minor pentatonic with an added b5.

Check out the lessons here on UG or google 'guitar scales' or something. If you still have questions, post back.

I thought scales were made up of notes. What's a b5 note? Or did you mean b flat?

'There actually is a scale commonly known as the blues scale. Its a minor pentatonic with an added b5.'

This might help:
The classical music theory is not well suited to describe the Blues, but we don't have a choice. From that point of view Blues is crazy and wrong - playing dominant major 7th chords all over minor pentatonic scales, using chromatic scale pieces for intros and turnarounds, using a 5 tone scale instead of the accustomed 7 tone scales, adding notes that don't belong to any scale.


This scale is called "pentatonic", because it contains only 5 (penta = 5) different notes. We start with the minor pentatonic scale in E (there's also a major pentatonic scale, which sounds not so "sad", but for a deep basic Blues we'll take the minor). We start with the key of E, because it's a "guitar key" - all open strings belong to this scale.
Here it is, noted in tab (E is the key, that means the scale begins with E):
E I---------------------0-3-I
B I-----------------0-3-----I
G I-------------0-2---------I
D I---------0-2-------------I
A I-----0-2-----------------I
E I-0-3---------------------I

E minor pentatonic scale, first pattern.

No, I mean the flattened 5th degree of the scale. In A major it would be Eb, in C major it would be Gb etc.
The minor pentatonic scale contains the 1-b3-4-5-b7. The blues scale adds the flattened fifth, therefore the intervals are 1-b3-4-b5-5-b7.
