This is in response to an email from Eddie, who asked about be-bop scales,
I cant do individual lesson’s etc. from this site, but I can post info that might be of benefit.
Basically David Baker looked at how some great Bop players managed to get about so swiftly, and concluded that they were adding an extra note to certain scales/modes in order to allow scale tones to fall on downbeats, anyhow, the net has a million videos/explanations, but these are the ones I use, with an example of an altered dominant scale over G which I use a lot too….
Bebop Scales in G:
G A B C D D# E F# G
G A B C D E F F# G
G A A# B C D E F G
Half Dim Bebop
G G# A# C C# D D# F G
Altered Dominant over G:
[G G# ] [Bb B C#] [Eb F] [G G# Bb B]
4th String 3rd String 2nd String 1st String
Hope this a) Makes sense and b) helps!
