This Lydian b7 is so much fun to use it becomes infectious. Before I answer that I want to share one more informational gem!

I have covered a lot of that material and so now, for those of you who think, well, what other stuff can I do in a Bluesy way that is not boues straight up Blues? Make sure to download the Guitar Pro tabs to learn the licks along with the videos. 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.

Chris – May 30, at 3: Another bluss for Lydian b7 could be Mixolydian 4.

Yes, you could do that but there is a scale that represents the move much better. Johan Schock – February 20, at 2: Georges – March 26, at Also, make sure to look at his complete course Juca Bala – March 28, at 7: Sign up now to receive 3 free Blues video lessons from Frank Gambale. As I mentioned before, a lot of musicians play an Eb7 right before the D7 up a half step or one fret. The scale is Eb Lydian b7 or A Super Locrian depending on which root is used to visualize the chord change.


Why make such a fuss? Notice how the G and C swap roles between the A7 and Eb7. The 4th position is standard dominant chords such as 9th.

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 A instead of playing an Ab.

OK then, what scale can we use for this passing Eb7? Ricardo Eisenhut – March 26, at 2: 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.

The 3rd of the B,ues becomes the b7 of the Eb7 and the 3rd of the A7 becomes the b7 of the Eb7, weird huh?

You may have already noticed that the only thing that changed was the bass note. The 7th position Melodic Minor is where many altered dominant bluds are such as 7 5b9.

Spice Up your Blues Playing with Frank Gambale

Hans Van Even – February 19, at Hope you and I rfank when my guitar and keyboard inventions reach the market. What I am about to say applies also to the Eb7 going into the 2nd bar too.


Both these chords have the same parent scale. This lesson is especially designed for intermediate to advanced guitar players. This excerpt is from Part 10 of the 12 part course, a point in the course where Frank launches off into more advanced concepts. What I am talking about happens between the blued chord of the Blues and the second chord of the Blues namely between the A7 and the D7 chords.

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

This and successive chapters are for you folks! For students who do the course from the beginning, they will be completely ready for this part! Eb Lydian b7 is the 4th mode of Bb Melodic Minor.

The course is from Beginner to Advanced.
