Well, one of the scales I need to learn for my grade 3 Jazz exam is the Blues scale on A. Which is:

A C D D# E G A

Don't know if that's of use?

This is the A minor blues scale, see Pete's article (link in my previous post), many people just refer to the minor blues scale as The blues scale, ignoring the existence of the major blues scales.
