Major bebop scale | Guitar diagrams , fingerings and licks | Free jazz guitar lesson

jazz guitar scalesLike all the bebop scales, the major bebop scale is an octatonic scale (eight notes) and it will take exactly four beats to play if the eight notes are used. It contains the same notes as the major scale (ionian mode) including a chromatic passing tone (#5) between the fifth (5) and the sixth (6). Playing the major bebop scale over major seventh chords brings tension because of the #5, this is a passing tone so you need to resolve this note in your major lines and avoid to play it over strong beats. Before learning this scale be sure to master the ionian mode, here are some guitar patterns about it.

Major bebop scale | Guitar fretboard diagrams and fingerings # 1

Here are two guitar fretboard diagrams about the major bebop scale. 

It is recommended to play these patterns by starting with the lowest root (R) and to play them by ascending and descending movements.

To play the A major bebop scale starting with the lowest root you must place your second finger on the sixth string at the fifth fret.

You will also have to slide with your fourth finger on the fifth string to get the augmented fifth (#5).

Be sure to play these patterns in twelve keys.

Playing the corresponding chord after or before these patterns is a nice way to bring scales and chords together, this way you will hear the scale correctly.

Pattern 1 w/intervals. Roots on the sixth, fourth and first string.
