@SBB: Oh, the replies are helpful alright. Most people's style is defined by what they grew up with and what their influences are. It's not surprising to see people composing in only one scale all the time, it's pretty normal. I found myself playing in minors all the time.

Then I took theory and some jazz courses in school. I learned some more scales and that opened up a whole new world to me. Sure, I still abuse minor scales, but I have a lot more to play with now.

The problem is that people get stuck with that they're used to doing. Open up your eyes, experiment more, listen to different genres. It'll come to you eventually.

Lol at microtones.

What instruments does OP use for his compositions? Why don't you try writing in blues scale while using different instruments and see if you progress out of blues from there?

It's a beautiful scale, well worth using. Don't be ashamed of it.

notes you hit it always sounds good. Is it like a sign of "uncreativity" or something?

No, no it is not.

I know I'm capable of other things, sometimes I manage to break free of it and make something that sounds good NOT in the blues scale,

All that matters is sounding good.

but only occasionally. There's only so many variations you can do before it gets stale.
