Free Video Lesson on Mastering the Dominant Bebop Scale and Language Book 1 & 2

I decided to offer a free video lesson on my book “Mastering the Dominant Bebop Scale and Language Book 1 & 2” for everyone. I have sold many of these books over the years and really want to make sure that everyone is getting the most out of them that they can.  You can consider this an “overview” lesson on the books ( I have more detailed lesson in my Neffmusic store).  I cover topics such as:

  • What the dominant bebop scale is……
  • The goal of the first part of the book……
  • How to best practice………
  • How to incorporate bebop links into your lines………
  • Demonstrating different links together in one continuous line……
  • Using resolution links……….
  • Playing lines in eighth notes, triplets, sixteenth notes and sextuplets…
  • Adding substitution links and non-chord links……..
  • ……more tips on practicing……….

When I started recording the lesson I had the intention to make it a quick lesson………but wouldn’t you know that once I got into it and started teaching it turned into a 26 minute lesson……………..You will need my Mastering the Dominant Bebop Scale Book 1 & 2 to get the most out of this video lesson. (PDF Versions to download or the printed version)

I demonstrate using the material over a standard ii7-V7 progression so you can hear how to use the lines in context……….
