Blues Guitar scales

Van posted a video of my Second Life avatar playing a demo guitar. She suggested I compose a Blues tune to accompany my Blue-skinned avatar. I didn’t know how to play the Blues but thanks to the Internet, I found some useful references. Like this one: Slowhand Blues Guitar (http://12bar.de/soloscal.php):

A minor Blues scale

I recorded a 20-second tune based on the A-major scale (basically you follow the scale pattern and move up/ down the fret board). Listen to it here.

Here’s the video from Vanessa, after she inserted the soundtrack.

Here’s the link to the original video without the soundtrack. It’s obvious how music is so important for a total effect. Also another example of “synergy”, where the final product of the video with soundtrack is greater than the soundtrack or video on their own.
