If you look on the other scales in this package, you'll notice that the notes making up a chord (C, E, and G in a C Major
chord) dont fall on the strong beats when creating a bass line. Ealry jazz poineers (Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker)
added addition notes to a scale in order to reconcile the placement of chord tones on strong beats, thereby creating
what we now call bebop scales.
The first C Major scale, you'll notice, has a B on the 1st beat of the 2nd measure. TO reconcile this so that the line
sounds more C Major, additional notes are added to the scale (e.g., Ab) so that C falls on the 1st beat of the 2nd
measure.
Below I've included the chords for a C Major blues. I've left the tab blank for you to complete. This will help you
translate between tablature and written music.
