This week’s episode brings you a lesson on the bebop scale. This device is a great way to quickly incorporate some chromaticism into your playing and get those snaky lines you always wanted.
I have to warn you though, this might be the biggest amount of work I have given you in any episode so far. We start by learning the dominant and major bebop scales and then learn them starting on every chord tone available to us.
This seems like a lot of work but isn’t anything worth practicing a ton of work?? By completing all of the exercises I have given you in this episode, you will be flying around the bebop scale in no time and starting to gain that amazing bebop sound we have heard so much throughout the history of jazz.
Buckle your seat belts and get ready for a barrage of information to be thrown at you. As always, you need to move at your own pace and take things slowly until you get everything under your fingers and in your mind. Have fun with this week’s lesson!

Is there a PDF with these exercises?? They seem pretty straight forward, but I’m pretty visual at firs before I get it into my ear.
Hey Marc! If you want the PDF please head over to our Patreon page using one of the links on the site. They are there for every episode!
I’ve done the patreon, but there isn’t one for episode 11. The pdf with episodes 1-75 skips from 10 to 12.
