The Bebop scale actually has a multiple iterations, I am just going to show you one of them and it works over a dominant seventh chord. We see dominant seventh chords all the time so I am trying to give you a lot of things to play over it. We talked before the melodic minor, a fifth F works. We see some of the upper structure over F dominant seventh, how the G triads works, the F works, the different scales to use as well.
The Bebop scale is pretty similar; all it does is add a note. Be set for the dominant seventh, you can go up and play the major scale. So we went up a fifth and played Bb. That hits all the notes. So I am actually just playing from F to F on the Bb scale, F, G, A, Bb, C, D, Eb, F. If you want to put this in a major though, people figure it out that they wanted to add a note to it, because when you resolve that downwards to Bb major 7, as we have done so far.
If you wanted to land on F, the fifth, that's a very strong note to land on. You couldn't get there playing it that way. You would have to start on the Eb, wasn't something people wanted to do, so they added the note in there. Let's start on F and we are going to add a note in between Eb and F. That's the Bebop scale. We have got F, G, A, Bb. Remember a fourth on the new Flat. Here it's Bb, let's cross under to the C, D, Eb, E, F. Let's try one more time. You have got F, G, A, Bb, C, D, Eb, E, F.
So, I just showed you that you could use the melodic minor scale over F dominant seventh, you can also use the Bebop scale. Let's contrast the two. For an F dominant seventh, you need to be using the melodic minor, a fifth up, which makes it C. There is that melodic minor again. Here is the F Bebop scale.
Bebop sometimes could be very, very, very quick music, the scale is easily on the fingers and really importantly lets you use a lot of different licks and ideas off of it. That's a very common lick. Let's see it again, F, E, Eb, G, T, C, that idea can come from the root. If we play a C7, it's the same thing here, half step, half step, up to the D and down to A, C, B, Bb, D, A, G. Let's go back up to F7.
What is all this, a movement coming from; that's just the Bebop scale. We have got F, G, A, Eb, C, D, Eb, E. That lets me get to that fifth of the major seventh chord we are resolving to. That's also another common lick to use. Let's look at that one, to the F7. If you wanted to end on that F, it's hard to do without putting that F# in there. It's the same way going up the keyboard.
