    1. Absolutely, I have here in the past but I’ll make another explanation video. The scale used in this lesson is called a bebop dominant scale. It’s an 8 note scale. A mixolydian scale with a natural 7 added. But I’ll explain more in a few.

    1. Hey Curtis, great question! The scale is determined, mainly around what chords are being played in the song. If you listen closely, the guitar player is playing a dominant chord throughout that chorus. The dominant cord is directly associated with the mixolydian scale. In the beginning, when I was unsure of the key of a song I would go through all of the modes to see which one sounded and fit the best but it’s important to train your ear to hear these chords and to hear the sound of the scales. But that definitely takes time. I’ll do a more in depth explanation on how to find the key of songs. Thanks for the question!
