There is something I do not understand about the Hybrid scale. In Key of A, the note B is added (2nd degree) on string e, 7th fret. Why the same note B on string E is not added? It's the same note.

Blues Hybrid Scale

You can see here that I have added in a couple of notes on the 1st and 2nd strings, but not the others. You can also play the added notes other places (maybe you might like to find them?)

Because you usually don't  play lead guitar on the 6th string. You can if you want to.
There are no rules saying you can't.
The main use of the hybrid scale is on the G B e strings.

by that logic,  why bother with scale notes on E, A and D strings at all? ;-) I see your point and of course agree but for the sake of completeness, these note(s) should be depicted on the diagram. Not that it changes anything but I thought there was maybe some hidden reason I could not see.
