What I am talking about happens between the 1st chord of the Blues and the second chord of agmbale Blues namely between the A7 and the D7 chords. The scale is Eb Lydian b7 or A Super Locrian depending on which root is used to visualize the chord change.

OK then, what scale can we use for this passing Eb7? Before I answer that Blued want to share one more informational gem! The 3rd of the A7 becomes the b7 of the Eb7 and the 3rd of the A7 becomes the b7 of the Eb7, weird huh?

Yes, you could do that but bluss is a scale that represents the move much better. Look really closely at the A7 and then the Eb7.

The precise name is A7 with a 5 and a b9, A7 5b9. As I mentioned before, a lot of musicians play an Eb7 right before the D7 up a half step or one fret.

The 4th position is standard dominant chords such as 9th. Notice also that these two chords are basically the same except for the root.

Juca Bala – March 28, at 7: Another name for Lydian b7 could be Mixolydian 4.


Gajbale S – March 26, at Ricardo Eisenhut – March 26, at 2: I have covered a lot of that material and so now, for those of you vambale think, well, what other stuff can I do in a Bluesy way that is not necessarily straight up Blues?


Best from Johan Schock. One of the first slippery and outside things I like to do is based on something that happens all the time while playing in the standard blues chord progression, but very few musicians act upon what the chords suggest when they play the single lines in a solo. This and successive chapters are for you folks!

Now some might say, well, the scale for the Eb7 should simple be the Eb Mixolydian, or just play and Eb Blues scale for 2 beats and be done with it. Eb Lydian b7 is the 4th mode of Bb Melodic Minor. Johan Schock – February 20, at 2: This lesson is especially designed for intermediate to advanced guitar players. Hans Van Even – February 19, at The 4th and the 7th of Bb Melodic Minor are the notes Eb and A, which are the roots of the two chords we are studying.

Both these chords have the same parent scale. This Lydian b7 is so much fun to use it becomes infectious. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. The 7th position Melodic Minor is where many altered dominant chords are such as 7 5b9. This excerpt is from Part 10 of the 12 part course, a point in the course where Frank launches off into more advanced concepts.

Hope you and I live when my guitar and keyboard inventions reach the market. Thank you so much for sharing this stuff — you make me want to play guitar — some of the new stuff is vlues syntetic and boring — this is organic and real guitarstuff. Chris – May 30, at 3: Notice how the G and C swap roles between the A7 and Eb7. When the bass moves a tritone or b5th away to A, it becomes an A7 altered chord. I will make the Eb7 into an Eb9 that will make it even clearer what is going on here.


Why make such a fuss? Also, make sure to look at his complete course Notice that the only difference is that the Lydian b7 keeps the A natural, which, after all, agmbale the original root key of this Blues progression, so, it actually sounds more connected and better retaining the A instead of playing an Rfank.

You may have already noticed that the only thing that changed was the bass note. The course is from Blyes to Advanced. Georges – March 26, at For students who do the course from the beginning, they will be completely ready for this part! What I am about to say applies also to the Eb7 going into the 2nd bar too.
