Description
Be Bop Scales Be Bop Scales, are based on regular 7note scales (Ionian, Dorian, Mixo etc.), but with one added note. Thanks to this added note, when these scales are played linearly, using constant 8ths and starting the line on a chord tone, all chord tones (and in some cases available tensions as well) will be found on strong beats, while all other tones will show up on the weaker beats. &œ 2 3 &c œ Be Bop Major (Ionian) scale,the added note is A b ( b6) Be Bop Melodic Minor scale, the adde

Thanks to this added note, when these scales are played linearly, using constant 8ths andstarting the line on a chord tone, all chord tones (and in some cases available tensions as well)will be found on strong beats, while all other tones will show up on the weaker beats.Be Bop Major (Ionian) scale,the added note is A b (  b 6)Be Bop Melodic Minor scale, the added note is again A b (  b 6)Be Bop Mixolydian scale, the added note is B  n (   n 7)Be Bop Dorian Scale, which is an inversion of the Be Bop Mixolydian Scale, the added note is E  n (   n 3)Another type of Be Bop Dorian Scale is the one created by adding the B  n (   n 7)Be Bop Lydian b 7, just like the Be Bop Mixolydian, but with a #  11 Be Bop Mixolydian b 9 b 13, the added note is B  n (   n 7)   All seven note scales can have a Be Bop version, by adding a chromatic passing tone to them. The purposeof these scales is to project all the chord tones (or any other desired tensions) on the downbeats, and thenon-chord tones or Avoid notes on the upbeat.  & 8  œ   œœ œbœœœœ D min7  œœœ œ# œœœœ G 7  œœœ œbœœ nœœ C Maj7  œœŒ Ó& 12    œœœ œ# œœœœ D min7  œ œbœœœœœœ G 7  œœœœœœŒ C Maj7  ∆ & 16    œ œ# œœœœœœ D min7  œœbœbœœ œbœbœ D b 7  ( #  11  ) œœ C Maj7  ∆ & 20  œ   œœœœ œ# œœb C Maj7  A 7  ( b 9 ) œœœœœ œ# œœ D min7  G 7  œœŒ Ó C Maj7  ∆ & 24  œ   œ# œœœœ# œœ E min7  œ# œœœœ œ# œœb A 7  œœœ œ# œœœœ D min7  œ œbœœbœœœœb G 7  jœ‰ Œ Ó C Maj7  & 29    œ œ# œ œ# œœœ œ# œœœ 2 Be Bop ScalesThe Be Bop scales are over-emphasized in the following examples in order to demonstrate their effect. Theyshould normally be mixed with other material (arpeggios, pentatonics etc.) in order to work more musical.More notes can be added, bringing all the available tensions into the downbeats as well as the chord notes.This example shows the major scale with added chromatic passing notes. Use it carefully, too much chromatisismcan hide the function of the chord scale-unless if that is the desired effect. copyright © 2005 dlazaridis.com
