George shows additional bop scales over three more chords. He also shows how to play them with varying articulation and straight with a metronome.
- Let's get our two five going to C, the people's key.…The chord here, first chord we're going to work on,…D minor seven, D, F, A, and C,…we've got our D minor triad, straight up,…add the seventh, we get a, kind of a jazz flavor to it.…Then we go to G seven, and then to C major seven.…
That's the major seven right there.…As we've been doing, the the minor bop scale…is going to go up, and have a little bit…of an extra degree between five and six,…and the natural seven, as opposed to a flat seven,…so, the scale,…(plays scale)…you can see, is D, E, F, G, A, our passing tone,…A sharp, to B, C sharp (continues playing scale).…
Let's take a look at the fingering here,…the way I do it,…one, two, three, one, two, three,…one, three, one, two, three, one, two, three,…one, three ...…Something about the bop scales, that they just seem…to all naturally fall into that little group of fingering.…I haven't really focused on it, but there's not…a natural way to get the fourth and the fifth…involved with most of these.…
The way that they kind of rotate, and the place…
