The Major Bebop Scale
All of the exercises in this section will be in the key of C major and will utilise the C Major chord structure:
C Major, Dm, G7, C maj7 or C min, Dm7b5, G7alt, Cm7
The Major Bebop scale is made up of the Ionian Mode with a #5 or b6 added and can be used to solo over a Maj7 chord and variations such as Maj6, Maj79.
Here is one fingering that I use for the C Major Bebop scale:
The Major Bebop Scale is constructed as follows:
R 2 3 4 5 b6 6 7 R
Or as in the example Cmaj7
C D E F G G# A B C
