The scale is Eb Lydian b7 or A Super Locrian depending on which root is used to visualize the chord change. Both these chords have the same parent scale.

This excerpt is from Part 10 of the 12 part course, a point in the course where Frank launches off into more advanced concepts. Notice bluues 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 A instead of playing an Ab.

Notice also that these two chords are basically the same except for the root. Yes, you could do that but there is a scale that represents the move much better.

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? Georges – March 26, at For students who do the course from the beginning, they will be completely ready for this part! This Lydian b7 is so much fun to use it becomes infectious. This lesson is especially designed for intermediate to advanced guitar players.


OK then, what scale can we use for this passing Eb7? Make sure to download the Guitar Pro tabs to learn the licks along with the videos. Notice how the G and C swap roles between the A7 and Eb7. You may have already noticed that the only thing that changed was the bass note.

Frak 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. The 7th position Melodic Minor is where many altered dominant chords are such as 7 5b9. Chris – May 30, at 3: Tom S – March 26, at Juca Bala – March 28, at 7: Look really closely at the A7 and then the Eb7.

Another name for Lydian b7 could be Mixolydian 4. 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.

Hans Van Even – February 19, at Johan Schock – February 20, at 2: What I am about to say applies also to the Frsnk going into the 2nd bar too. Best from Johan Schock.

Before I answer that I want to share one more informational gem! I have covered a lot of that material and so gamhale, for those of you who think, well, what other stuff can I do in a Bluesy way that is not necessarily straight up Blues? Now some might say, well, the scale for the Frqnk should simple be the Eb Mixolydian, or just play and Eb Blues scale for 2 beats and be done with it.


Why make such a fuss? Ricardo Eisenhut – March 26, at 2: I will make the Eb7 into an Eb9 that will make it even clearer what is going on here.

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. 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 the D7 chords.

The 4th position is standard dominant chords such as 9th.
