BEBOP DOMINANT

More eight note scales, or eight tone scales as Americans will insist on saying...

Today I'm starting on proper jazz scales, more to follow but for now, revel in the glory of  THE BEBOP DOMINANT SCALE.

Essentially the Mixolydian mode with an added major 7, which would be the same as the Ionian mode with a flat 7...

It contains the intervals: 1,2,3,4,5,6,b7,7.

As with the Eight Note Spanish scale, there are some potential interesting modes, and I probably will talk about these in more than passing later...

My personal sources of curiosity and probable applications are:

Mode 3 (1,b2,b3,4,b5,5,b6,b7) The Phrygian Mode with an extra b5 or Locrian with a added natural 5 if you prefer.

and

Mode 5 (1,2,b3,3,4,5,6,b7) The Dorian mode with an added 3 as I would most likely use it or Mixolydian with an added b3.

 The free guitar scale diagrams below lay out the scale for you all over the neck, as a four note per string three octave scale and as the seven three note per string patterns that will link together to let you play it all over the fretboard in any key.

Any how, here are the dots!
