      Just to be clear that's a C dominant bebop scale that Jackie spelled out to be used over a C7 chord. The scales only help when you know how to use them. Kristy

        That bebop scale was invented by John Phillip Sousa. Just listen to the introduction of the Thunderer March if you don't believe me. : ) John

          John, The use of a chromatic step to even out chord tones on a down beat of a running passage goes much further back then Sousa, but yes he used it too:) K

          Wow, Sousa clearly was the man. He invented a scale before it even existed.

          Figured I would see if I got a response, I haven't chated in this forum in a really long time. I have a few new recordings on my site, www.vintagehorn.com if anyone has any time to take a listen feedback is welcome. Really just the first 4 songs are new recordings.

        or stick the jog in notes between g and a. the bebop scale is just a way of getting the tonic to hit on the one. check out bergonzis books.

          What they spelled out is the bebop dominant scale which is a major scale with the chromatic seventh, making the scale degrees 1 2 3 4 5 6 b7 Natural 7 8. This works over dominant scales. There is also the bebop major scale, which has a chromatic 6 instead of a chromatic seventh, making the scale degrees 1 2 3 4 5 b6 Natural 6 7 8. You can use this over a major 7th chord, and can also use it over a tritone sub for a chord and lean on the b6. They're both very hip scales to use.

            Right, but I'm not sold on the hipness.
