First, choose a note. For this guide I'm going to use C as my tonic, or "home note". Any C will do, just make sure you have a C above it as well. We need to get all the way up there.
Eb (E flat)
Gb (G flat)
G (G natural)
Bb (B flat)
Now you know the notes for the C Blues scale. Playing those notes, in any order, can create any solo you like in C. Tip: I add an E natural after the Eb. That's just a flair, and is optional.
There you go! Start out slow and keep it simple. Try going up and down the scale a few times until you really get a hang of it and the jazz will come. Good luck, and stay jazzy!
