    Whats a "blue note?" I read about them somewhere. Is that like when you play a chord and one of intervals falls onto a note that's not actually in the scale?

    I'm not sure, i've heard the term used in Jazz & Blues music, not sure of its meaning tho.

    EDIT:

Typically the alteration is a semitone or less, but this varies among performers and genres. Country blues, in particular, features wide variations from the diatonic pitches with emotive blue-notes. Blue notes are often seen as akin to relative pitches found in traditional African work songs.

    No doubt man. I struggled with this stuff when i was learning, nobody ever layed it out simply.
