You can start on any note, and by following the interval pattern (spaces between notes), you'll have the 'blues!'
Compare and contrast the blues scale to the minor scale.
Usually, scales are played across strings (not on just one string).
Read the tablature (TAB) line and play this C blues scale. Next, sing the note names, reading from the staff.
Then practice reading the scale from the staff.
