Jazz Guitar Secrets: Bebop Scale Demystified - Jazz Guitar Lesson

Learn the "WHAT" and the "WHY" of the simple concept behind the so-called Jazz guitar bebop scales...

The bebop scales are derived from rhythms. Historically, bebop musicians started to add notes to "regular" diatonic scales. For instance, instead of using the 'plain' dominant 7th (mixolydian) scale on a C7 chord:

C E F G A Bb

The Jazz guitarists (and other musicians) started adding a passing tone like this:

C E F G A Bb B

Notice that the second scale here (bebop scale) has 8 notes instead of 7 notes. And this is a perfect fit for playing 8th-notes in four-four time! In short: the added notes permit better "alignement" of the notes with the 4/4 time signature.
