One of the fundamental theoretical elements to understand music is the harmonization of the major scale. Harmonizing scale is building chords with notes. For this, you have to stack thirds (It is also possible to harmonize the major scale in fourths). If you are wondering why thirds and not seconds or sixths for example, the reason is mainly historical: our music today is based on harmony in thirds. Once you have read this lesson, you will be able to find the tonality of a song simply by looking at its chords, you will know which scale to play on which chord progressions.
The dorian bebop scale (or minor bebop scale) is an eight notes scale (octotonic). It is usualy played in bebop. It is an octotonic scale, it contains a chromaticism, an additional note between the minor third (b3) and the fourth (4).
The dorian bebop scale has the same notes as the dorian mode including a passing tone, a major third (3) between the minor third (b3) and the fourth (4th).
There are two versions of the dorian bebop scale, one with a passing tone (3) between the b3 and the 4th and one with a passing tone (7) between the b7 and the root, this one has the same intervals as the dominant bebop scale.
The minor bebop scale is used to play over minor 7th chords.
