Barney KessellNotation of scales is a worthwhile exercise; it improves your familiarity and understanding of scale structures. The Bebop major mode has both a flat 7 and a natural 7 (minor and major 7) While writing out the modes of the other Bebop modes you’ll realise that every mode has a major and minor 7th.

The modes of the Bebop major scale are exactly the same as regular modes: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian with an extra chromatic note a semi tone below the root.

Anatomy of a Bebop Solo: Remo Palmier – Groovin’ High
Remo Palmieri was a jazz guitarist who gained some attention in the 1940s. He played with many jazz greats including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Pearl Bailey, Billie Holiday, […]

Groovin' High (Dizzy Gillespie album)
Groovin’ High (Dizzy Gillespie album, photo credit: Wikipedia)

Remo Palmieri was a jazz guitarist who gained some attention in the 1940s. He played with many jazz greats including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Pearl Bailey, Billie Holiday, Red Norvo, and Sarah Vaughan. Palmier was one of the first guitarists to build on the ideas of Charlie Christian.

This is a tutorial on Remo Palmier’s solo on ‘Groovin’ High‘.
This solo is a great one to learn when developing bebop vocabulary. It’s quite short (only half a chorus) and is relatively easy to learn and play but includes some classic bebop phrases.

This is Remo’s solo:

Before learning the solo, listen to the recording, learn the chords and melody until you can comfortably play along.

Let’s analyse some of the ideas Remo applies in this solo.

Phrase 1:remo palmier groovin high solo phrase one
Remo starts out with this phrase over Eb Major 7. He mixes a chromatic passage with some notes separated by larger intervals which creates interest. Notice how he outlines the sound of the Am7 – D7 chord in the second bar with a single note then leaves space. Remo’s use of space is similar to the approach used by horn players and gives the solo a strong feeling of structure.

Phrase 2:
remo palmier groovin high solo phrase 2

From the 4th bar Remo ascends a D7 Arpeggio then seamlessly links this run to a Eb major bebop scale over the Eb Major 7 chord. Bebop players didn’t always outline every chord. Leaving some space and outlining the 5 chord only in a II V I can help you create more flowing dynamic lines. The run over EbM7 is similar to the the beginning of Charlie Parker’s ‘Donna Lee’. In bar 7, Remo plays a line over Gm7 based on a descending arpeggio very reminiscent of Charlie Christian’s playing.

Phrase 3:
remo palmier groovin high solo phrase 3

In the final phrase, Remo anticipates the change to Fm7 by playing an Ab Major 7 arpeggio. It doesn’t really fit over the F7 chord because Ab is the flat 3rd but it works as a passing tone. This line follows the classic bebop approach of arpeggio up (bebop) scale down. That’s it! Apparently Dizzy Gillespie rearranged the tune after the original recording to allow Remo a solo; a shame he only allowed for half a chorus!

Bebop scales:
Major bebop: 1 2 3 4 b5 5 6 7 8
Dominant bebop: 1 2 3 4 5 6 b7 7 8
Minor bebop: 1 2 b3 4 5 6 b7 7 8

Try practicing these over a II V I progression:
||      Dm7       |       G7    |      CMaj7      |                    |

|| D minor bebop scale   | G dominant bebop scale  | C major bebop scale |

You can use just the G dominant bebop scale over both Dm7 and G7. However, you sometimes want to outline the sound of a minor chord, so the minor bebop scale is used.

Try adding some tension by playing the altered scale over the V chord (G7). This is like Ab minor melodic, but starting and ending on G. As in Remo’s solo, try using just this scale over the II V chords. Placement of space is also very important; Remo’s solo offers some great examples of how to make this work.

G7 altered scale: G Ab Bb B C# Eb F G
That’s: 1 b2 b3 3 #4 #5 b7

Guitar Sounds from Lenny Breau

The famous cascading artificial harmonics effect. I always found this effect very impressive when played by guitarists such as Ted Greene, Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel and Lenny Breau. This technique involves alternately picking artificial harmonics and regular chord tones. It’s actually not as difficult as it looks once you get the hang of it. In these examples, Rich Severson who worked in a guitar store with Ted Greene shows how it’s done.

“Tommy Emmanuel describes cascading harmonics as a “waterfalling sound”—the notes trickle down in a stream of sound. In its basic form, it is a sequence (usually fast) of a right – hand harmonic plucked by the thumb followed by a non – harmonic note plucked with the “a” finger. They are most effective when the left hand holds some form of a lush 9th, 13th, diminished, or augmented chord.”

Psychedelic guitar solos with exotic scales

George_Harrison_SitarIn his video on pentatonic scales” Dean Brown outlines some exotic sounds using modes including:

  • playing a B Major pentatonic over an E Major 7 chord.
  • playing an F# Major pentatonic (E Lydian Major 7) over an E Major 7 chord.

You can create some interesting lines with these ideas, however, the sound I really find interesting is using a minor pentatonic with a raised 3rd.

It’s a very simple idea yet very effective. The following diagram is a comparison of the A minor pentatonic scale, A pentatonic scale with raised 3rd, A7 arpeggio and the Mixolydian mode.

Pentatonic_Major_3
comparison of minor pentatonic, #3 pentatonic, arpeggio & scale

The pentatonic with raised 3 is quite similar to dominant 7 arpeggio; the only difference is that the pentatonic with raised 3 also includes the 4th. This allows quite an unusual sound. To me it sounds quite Indian and instantly reminded me of The Beatles song “Within You, Without You” by George Harrison. (Someone on YouTube commented that Dean Brown looks like George Harrison; I’m inclined to agree). It makes me think that George Harrison must have been aware of this scale when he wrote this song. It has a strong Indian but this is created by the dominant 7 sound.

I’ve tabbed out my version of “Within You, Without You”. I play this with a Travis picking approach but I’ve just tabbed chords and melody. I’ve used A as the key as this works well with open strings. A capo on the 3rd fret will transpose this to the original key of C.

Download pdf transcription

Another exotic sounding scale that can be used to add interest to improvisation is the Phrygian Dominant scale. (5th mode of the harmonic minor scale formula: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8) . Sometimes referred to as ‘The Heavy Metal Scale’, it has a dark, classical flavour.
The formula for the Phrygian Dominant is 1 – ♭2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – ♭6 – ♭7 – 1

Play the A harmonic minor scale over an E major chord and you’ll be playing the Phrygian Dominant mode. This tutorial provides some excellent examples:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVDr8MFMU-A

Other exotic scales worth exploring are:

Arabian 1     2    b3    4   #4   #5     6      7   minor
Gypsy 1     2    b3  #4             5    b6     7   minor
Romanian 1     2    b3  #4             5     6     b7   minor
Indian 1   b2             4              5    b6   neutral (no 3rd)
Indian 1   b2   b3     4             5     b6   b7   minor
Persian 1   b2     3      4           b5    b6    7   major
Byzantine 1   b2     3      4            5     b6    7   major
Oriental 1  b2      3      4           b5     6    b7   dominant
Jewish (Phrygian Dominant) 1  b2      3      4            5    b6    b7   dominant
Japanese 1   2                4             5   b6  neutral (no 3rd)

Charlie Parker quoteMiles Davis once said, “You can tell the history of jazz in four words: Louis Armstrong. Charlie Parker.” These artists redefined jazz and changed the course of modern music. http://ow.ly/4mIaUP Learning their lines and transcribing their solos while understanding the related harmonic theory is essential to the development of authentic jazz vocabulary and technique. Learning from horn players is particularly helpful for guitarists. Horn players tend to approach harmony differently as they are not constrained by the fret board grid. Here are some useful online resources for learning Charlie Parker lines for guitar. I’ve found these resources particularly helpful.

Billie’s Bounce‘: How to play Billie’s Bounce by Charlie Parker on ‪#‎Guitar‬

This is a great tutorial which shows how to play Bird’s ‘Billie’s Bounce’ solo in a series of easy to learn licks. Includes nice hand written tabs. A great Bebop blues tune, essential to the repertoire of any aspiring jazz guitarist.

It’s very helpful to compare the guitar lines to the original solo: https://youtu.be/S4mRaEzwTYo?t=41 Charlie Parker‘s phrasing transforms a series of notes into something very special.

The more I learn and practice lines like this, the more I realise just how special Charlie Parker‘s music is. Every phrase is gold!

Blues for Alice‘:

Blues for Alice Charlie Parker melody tabs tablature chords
My chart for Blues for Alice head with tabs

this tune is an example of ‘Bird changes’. The Blues for Alice changes, Bird changes, ‘Bird Blues’, or ‘New York Blues changes‘, is a chord progression, often named after Charlie Parker (“Bird”), which is a variation of the twelve-bar blues. The progression uses a series of sequential II-V or secondary II-V progressions, and has been used in pieces such as Parker’s “Blues for Alice”. Toots Thielemans’s “Bluesette” and Parker’s “Confirmation” also have similar progressions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_changes

MrBebopguitar plays Joe Pass ‘Modern Blues’; same chord progression as ‘Blues for Alice’ tabs in the video.

Dimitris Tsiabaos ‘Blues For Alice’ by Charlie Parker, and solo Joe Pass, guitar style. No tabs with this but Dimitris plays the head and plays through the lines nice and slow.

A Night in Tunisia

Tutorial by Jerry Baiden on Charlie Parker‘s famous alto break from ‘A Night in Tunisia’. This solo requires extreme athleticism; an excellent workout. The tutorial is really about jazz phrasing and the importance of dynamics within the jazz line.

wes_posterized_smlRecently I tried to find music for Wes Montgomery‘s ‘D Natural Blues‘; a really fun tune to play with solo lines very representative of Wes’ distinctive style. Unable to find a suitable sheet free, I tried https://www.sheetmusicdirect.com
 
Here you can find digital sheet music for many tunes by Wes Montgomery such as Days Of Wine And Roses, Full House, Four On Six, Airegin, Westcoast Blues and many more. There is a huge selection of tabs and notation and if you download the Scorch plugin you can play the notation and slow the tempo.

 
It costs around £0.99 per tune and this allows you one print. You can’t print to pdf or to file etc. You can of course print to a printer then scan the pages to create a pdf. Considering the quality and accuracy of the notation and tabs and the convenience of the online player, I’m thinking £0.99 per tune is pretty good value.

Guitar Gear Isn’t Everything

How many times have you watched a really impressive tutorial on YouTube etc. then read in the comments and endless list of questions like “What gear are you using?”,”What kind of guitar, amp, effects unit etc. is that?” The artist featured in the video, which of course was time consuming to produce, then has to waste additional effort listing all the equipment used. Questions about the actual technique in question often seem to be relatively rare. While good choices with musical equipment are important they aren’t everything. The reason the player in the video sounds impressive is because they have highly developed technical skills.

I used to spend a great deal of time collecting guitar effects and accessories. When you’re new to an instrument, buying it a few presents can be fun and can help you to define a distinctive sound.  One day while browsing for new effects in a music store I heard the salesman ask someone “Why not just buy yourself a multi-effects pedal instead of buying more pedals?” The guy replied “I already have three of those.” Before long, I realised that no matter how much money I spent on effects there was no magic combination that will magically transform your playing. The time you are spending playing around with effects etc. would probably be much better spent practicing technique.

When I became more serious about jazz guitar playing, I found that adding any effect, even on a very subtle level actually detracted from the sound I wanted. The unadorned sound of a semi acoustic jazz box and a decent amplifier is all you need. I found this quite liberating after all the time I had spend setting up before rock gigs. With my jazz box, all you need to do is plug in, tune up and play.

Peavey Vypyr 75 75W 1×12 Guitar Combo Amp: Featuring 24 amp channel models–both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere-plus 11 editable preamp “stomp box” effects and 11 editable post-amp “rack” effects with dual-parameter control.

My advice is that you buy the best guitar, amplifier and accessories that you can afford. Buy a limited range of effects that suit the style of music you play. Experiment with your sound until you find something that complements your playing style. Distortion/fuzz, delay and reverb, pitch effects like phaser, flanger, chorus, pitch shift etc. can enhance your guitar sound and are essential for most modern styles. Be subtle; less is more. Too much effect will detract from your playing more than it will enhance it. Consider buying a modelling amplifier which can model the sound of vintage valve amps and include a range of inbuilt effects. Digital effects for recording software have become a great deal cheaper (Audacity is a basic, free recording application and includes a huge range of effects.) Effects can be added and modified in post production.

But don’t just take my word for it. Wes Montgomery (considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time) was not interested at all in guitar equipment, he saw his guitar as a tool to do the job. Much of We Montgomery highly disnctive and beautiful tone was due to the way he played. Wes of course played with the fleshy part of his thumb rather than a pick which creates a mellow sound; particularly well suited for octave playing. During his entire career Wes Montgomery played almost exclusively on a Gibson L-5 (cutaway electric spanish) from 1963. He wasn’t really interested in equipment. In his own words: “I got a standard box. I don’t never want nothing special. Then if I drop my box, I can borrow somebody else’s.” – Read more about the gear Wes Montgomery used at: http://www.jazzguitar.be/wes_montgomery_guitar.html#sthash.WBKzStun.dpuf (Irony completely intentional 😉

jason_leeRemember life before the internet? Remember going into music stores and trying to memorise pages from tuition books because you couldn’t afford to buy them? More recently I have spent a great deal of time trawling YouTube and the web trying to answer this question; is it possible to learn advanced guitar online for free? Apart from having to repeatedly endure ads for products like ‘Yousician’ I’ve found this quest to be largely very rewarding and have managed to improve my playing no end.

Of course the quality of the material tends to vary but there is undoubtedly a wealth of brilliant resources online which, if well chosen can help anyone progress. The Guitar Cosmos Facebook Page features videos and web resources which I have personally tried out and recommend in a range of styles and levels. Hopefully aspiring guitarists will find this record useful.

As well as finding a great many useful resources I’ve also found a few that I’ve found a bit amusing. Here’s a small selection:

  2. Guitar Lesson Learn how to play fun Spaghetti Western alternative surf electric guitar riffs‘ by rockongoodpeople. This guy makes the list for his hair alone…
  3. Joe Diorio F Blues‘ Joe is undoubtedly a brilliant player and teacher but I found his body language in this clip a bit odd!
  4. Mastering the iim7b5-V7b9 by Les Wise‘ Les Wise is also a great guitarist and teacher but again, I couldn’t help but find his expressions in this clip just a bit amusing. I’m told I tend to pull faces like this when playing…

david_bowie_ziggy_stardustRIP David Bowie. Bowie was associated with many brilliant guitarists during his career, covering a range of styles, from Mick Ronson‘s glam rock guitar during the Ziggy Stardust period to Carlos Alomar‘s funk grooves on Young Americans and Station to Station, Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp’s outside, avant guarde sounds during the ‘Berlin‘ phase and Stevie Ray Vaughan‘s stylings on ‘Let’s Dance’.

David Bowie was (I’m really finding it difficult and weird to have to talk about him in past tense!) also an excellent guitarist in his own right, and his simple, highly melodic approach added highlights to many of his hits. I’ve always loved Bowie’s guitar solo on ‘Space Oddity’; the way he hangs on that E7 chord. (Click here for video tutorial). Bowie played all the guitar on ‘Diamond Dogs’, producing what NME critics Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray described as a “scratchy, raucous, semi-amateurish sound that gave the album much of its characteristic flavour” (source: Wikipedia). ‘Eight Line Poem‘ from ‘Hunky Dory’ is a poignant piece of country rock playing. (Click here for video cover).

Here’s a nice tutorial on how to play the funky guitar from Bowie’s first American hit, ‘Fame’ from ‘Young Americans’. All three guitar parts are included; great fun to play: (Click here for video tutorial)

Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection for a variety of literary and artistic endeavours. Everyone who has used the internet has at one time or another copied material illegally. This is due to the popular misconception, that once material is posted to the internet it can be freely copied: this not the case. Unless the author of the material has stated that is available for public use, then permission has to be obtained from the author for the material to be used.
File sharing sites, is another issue that concerning copyright laws. These sites/programs allow people to share material over the internet, this allows for copyrighted material to be shared and copied form one person to another. Some people believe this is okay as there is no transaction of money for the material: this is not true. File sharing is one of the biggest problems concerning copyright laws on the internet as there is no way to monitor all the information being shared between people and block and copyrighted material from being sent.
Now days because it is so easy to share copyrighted material over the internet and it is so frequently done many people do not see it as a crime that affects the authors finically. Although many people would not steal a cd from a store, download free music from the internet is socially acceptable on the internet.
The reason why people copy and break copyright laws is because they don’t want to pay for it. What most people don’t think about while there waiting happily as their download finishes, is that they are part of a mass group that is stealing from the author. This author has probably spent many hours of work developing a program hoping that in the end he can share with all of us and maybe get paid, to earn a living so he can continue provide us with software we want and need. But all those people who pirate software and wish for everything on the internet to be free or cheaper, are really just saying , we value what you have created but could you just do it for free? Would you do your job for free? Or cheaper? Highly unlikely, but that being said people that claim authors aren’t protecting their material enough, well all that can be said about that is, if people really want something enough, they’ll do anything, even if it might cost them jail time or a $50,000 fine.

Olympic Medalists Create Furor with Black Power Salute (1968)
The silent protest of two black American athletes at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City was an iconic and controversial statement. Sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos received their medals shoeless to draw attention to black poverty in America, and they performed the Black Power salute as their national anthem played. They were booed by the crowd and were later expelled from the staunchly apolitical games. Smith saluted with his right hand. Why was Carlos forced to salute with his left? Discuss

Trump hostility set to deepen Iran power struggles

Trump hostility set to deepen Iran power strugglesBy Parisa Hafezi ANKARA (Reuters) - Iranians quickly closed ranks against a hawkish new U.S. approach to Tehran, but Iran's powerful hardliners are set to exploit the latest dispute with Washington to weaken domestic rivals who are open to the West, analysts and insiders say. President Donald Trump's warning on Friday that he might ultimately terminate a landmark 2015 nuclear deal sets the stage for an eventual resurgence of political infighting within Iran's complex power structures, officials said. If the accord signed by Iran and six major powers does start to fall apart, anyone who strongly promoted it, such as pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani, could face a career-damaging backlash.

Somalia's deadliest bombing kills 276, injures 300Desperate Somalis searched for news of missing loved-ones on Monday, after a massive truck bomb in Mogadishu killed at least 276 people and left 300 injured in the deadliest ever attack to hit the conflict-torn nation. Residents of the Somali capital, while wearily accustomed to regular bombs and attacks by Islamist militants, have been left stunned by the monster explosion Saturday which gutted surrounding buildings and left victims burned beyond recognition. The government said it had set up an emergency committee to help relatives find the missing, with a crisis centre in the capital that residents can turn to.

Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers invesitgation killed in car bomb

Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers invesitgation killed in car bombMalta’s prime minister has appealed for national unity following the murder of a campaigning journalist who had accused his government of corruption. Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, achieved fame and notoriety for investigative reporting laced with scathing commentary about allegedly corrupt officials and businessmen. She was killed on Monday when a powerful bomb blew up her car. Forensic experts on the scene of the explosion which killed investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Bidnija, Malta Credit: Darrin Zammit Lupi/Reuters Police said the bomb went off while she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta on Monday afternoon. Joseph Muscat, the Maltese Prime Minister, denounced her murder as a "barbaric attack on press freedom". "I will not rest until I see justice done in this case. Our country deserves justice," he said in a televised statement.  Caruna Galizia’s blog, Running Commentary, was one the most widely read websites on Malta and led the investigation of corruption allegations stemming from revelations in the so-called Panama Papers leak. This is a spiteful attack on a citizen and freedom of expression. I will not rest until justice is done. The country deserves justice -JM— Joseph Muscat (@JosephMuscat_JM) 16 October 2017 It was famed for a relentless pursuit of cases of apparent corruption and incendiary, sometimes highly personal, comments that saw her embroiled in frequent legal battles. Earlier this year Politico magazine listed her as one of the 28 men and women “making and shaking Europe” for her unrelenting crusade against what she saw as Malta’s culture of “cronyism” and opaque government. Ambulance parked on the road where a car bomb killed Daphne Caruana Galizia Credit: Rene Rossignaud/AP In 2016 she reported Konrad Mizzi, the then energy Minister, and Keith Schembri, Mr Muscat’s chief of staff, were named in the Panama Papers leak as owners of off shore companies.  Both men denied wrong doing. Earlier this year Caruna Galizia claimed documents from a small Malta-based bank showed that Mr Muscat’s wife was the beneficial owner of a company in Panama, and that large sums of money had been moved between the company and bank accounts in Azerbaijan. The couple denied the accusation.  Mr Muscat called - and won - early elections in June as a vote of confidence to counter Caruana Galizia's allegations of corruption. In her last blog post, published just hours before she died, she bemoaned the lack of progress in prosecuting alleged corruption cases.   “There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,” she wrote in the last line.

Pot farmer's dreams go up in smoke during California wildfiresBy Heather Somerville SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Andrew Lopas' plans to bring his marijuana business out of the black market with a legal, profitable and organic pot farm went up in smoke in the wildfires that have scorched Santa Rosa, California. After four decades of growing pot illegally, the 54-year-old saw an opportunity last year to start a legitimate business serving the medical marijuana market. Last Sunday, as the wildfires, which have now killed at least 40 people, first erupted, Lopas' cannabis farm in Santa Rosa went up in flames, leaving behind the stumps of two chimneys, heaps of ash, charred marijuana plants and a despairing entrepreneur.

"The battle will continue until the whole city is clean," said a statement by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a U.S.-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias. SDF spokesman Talal Selo told Reuters that "no more than 200-300" foreign militants remained to fight on in the city after the convoy left.

Washington -- which has imposed sanctions on Maduro and his inner circle over what it calls Venezuela's slide into dictatorship -- said the lack of outside observers, last-minute changes to polling station locations and other irregularities meant the vote was not credible.

Bryson said a group of patents Allergan obtained on Restasis, which are set to expire in 2024, should not have been granted because they describe methods of treatment that were obvious in light of earlier patents granted to the company.
