  • Moments of Enlightenment

    Sometimes I have a moment of enlightenment.

    I think I have figured it out.

    Yesterday I was messing around with the Bebop scale. Wow. This is it I'm thinking. This is working!

    So I make a few notes to myself. "Do this." "Do that." "Start here." etc.

    Today is another day.

    Now what usually happens is that it does not work like it did yesterday.

    We'll see.

    Mojo for continued enlightment

    Everything I try and play with that scale sounds like ****************.

    I think you have to start on the "and"

        Try this, Mo. Attached .pdf descending bebop scale F-E-Eb-D (which is the chromatic scale).

        There's actually 6 two-bar licks which you can string together to create
        longer phrases.

        You can play this in eighth notes or quarter notes as long as you hit the beats. You have to play fast at bebop tempos over 200 if you use 8th notes.

        Also check out this video, particularly the piano player when he solos 2:39 and you can hear him using descending bebop licks. Listen. You can hear him playing that descending bebop phrase over and over.

        Rhythm Changes (I Got Rhythm) has AABA song form. Each A is an 8 bar section which you can play an 8 bar bebop descending phrase in 8ths or stretch it out a 4 bar bebop descending phrase in quarter notes.

          So, how do you incorporate power chords in drop D with this 'bebop scale'?
