Watch the Bebop Scale online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Jazzin' the Blues Vol. 1
In this set, we add the bebop scale to the blues. The bebop scale is a Mixolydian scale with a major 7th in between the root and the flatted 7th. The major 7th is used as a passing tone and is a very cool sound.
We're using a classic A blues. Notice the F9 to E9 towards the end. In the first chorus, I stick strictly with the bebop scale as related to each chord. In the second chorus, I mix it up with the blues.
