George explains the minor bop scale—in this case, the G minor 7 bop scale. The interesting thing about this scale is that you don't play the seventh in it, at least not on the way up because the additional scale tone will be between degrees five and six. The thinking here is that a half-step resolution is a stronger sound. George demonstrates this very interesting difference and how it sounds against the chords.
