Frahk 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. Best from Johan Schock. Hans Van Even – February 19, at Before I answer that I want to share one more informational gem!

Eb Lydian b7 is the 4th mode of Bb Melodic Minor.

Georges – March 26, at The 7th position Melodic Minor is where many altered dominant chords are such as 7 5b9.

What I am talking about happens between the 1st chord of the Blues and the second chord of the Blues namely between the A7 and bluws D7 chords. 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 excerpt is from Part 10 of the 12 part course, a point in the course where Frank launches off into more advanced concepts.

Tom S – March 26, at The course is from Beginner to Advanced. The 4th position is standard dominant chords such as 9th.

When the bass moves a tritone or b5th away to A, it becomes an A7 altered chord. Same as Bb Major scale with a minor 3rd. This and successive chapters are for you folks! The precise name is A7 with a 5 and a b9, A7 5b9.

Yes, you could do that but there is a scale that represents the move much better. This Lydian b7 is bllues much fun to use it becomes infectious. Why make such a fuss? The scale is Eb Lydian b7 or A Super Locrian depending on which root is used to visualize the chord change. Ricardo Eisenhut – March 26, at 2: For students who do the course from the beginning, they will be completely ready for this part! You may have already noticed that the only thing that changed was the bass note.

I have covered a lot of that material and so now, for those of you who think, well, what other stuff can I rrank in a Bluesy way that is not necessarily straight up Blues? Johan Schock – February 20, at 2: Also, make sure to look at his complete course Make sure to download the Guitar Pro tabs to learn the licks along with the videos.

Now some might say, well, the scale for the Eb7 should simple be the Eb Mixolydian, or just play and Gsmbale Blues scale for 2 beats and be done with it. Another name for Lydian b7 could be Mixolydian 4. Notice also that these two chords are basically the same except for the root.

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 so syntetic and boring — this is organic and real guitarstuff.

Both these chords have the same parent scale. Notice how the G and C swap roles between the A7 and Eb7.

Notice that the only difference is that the Lydian b7 keeps the A natural, which, after all, is the original root key of this Blues progression, so, it actually sounds more connected and better retaining the Gambxle instead of playing an Ab.

As I mentioned glues, a lot of musicians play an Eb7 right before the D7 up a half step or one fret. Look really closely at the A7 and then the Eb7. The 3rd of the A7 becomes frxnk b7 of the Eb7 and the 3rd of the A7 becomes the b7 of the Eb7, weird huh? Chris – May 30, at 3: Juca Bala – March 28, at 7: What I am about to say applies also to the Eb7 going into the 2nd bar too.

OK then, what scale can we use for this passing Eb7? This lesson is especially designed for intermediate to advanced guitar players.
