George demonstrates how to put everything together using the bop scales, and approach notes provided in the previous lessons. He shows how to play them over the F blues chord changes. He also shows how to use the approach notes to hinge together the bop scales. This is the culmination of everything taught in the F7 blues lessons, and is your first step to becoming a jazz pianist.
- Let's put what we've learned at this point…on our blues progression.…If you look at the PDFs,…you will see that there's one called…Blues in F Chart, I think.…And it's a really simple progression.…We're going to play one that's a little bit more…of a bebop-oriented blues.…And that means that we're going to play…four bars of F seven.…A bar is a measure, if you're not familiar with that.…Then we're going to play two bars of B-flat seven.…
Then we're going to go back to F seven for two bars.…And then we're going to play...…This part is the part that's more of a bebop idea.…G minor seven…to C seven,…and then…back to F seven.…The part that makes this a little bit more of a bebop thing,…a traditional blues would hit the C seven,…then it would go back to the B-flat seven…and back to the F seven.…
But I wanted to put this in there,…it's called a two-five-one…because this is the two minor chord.…It's built on the second degree of our F scale.…And then the five chord is the C,…which is built on the C,…the fifth degree of our F scale.…
