Year 6 musicians have been diving in to the magic of the blues and jazz, learning the C blues melody. The blues melody is the foundation of most jazz music, adapting the major, heptatonic, seven note scale, for a seven note scale featuring three flattened or “blue” notes. This creates a melody that fits with the 12 bar blues backing track. In the key of C this features chords C, F and G.

We hope you enjoy our rehearsal of the C blues melody – stay tuned for compositions based on the blues.
