Learn how to play in any harmonic situation and create long, fluid lines with this concept of applying the Dom7 Be-bop Scale with a group of chord substitutions called “The Family of 4”.
“Sheryl Bailey shares her approach to practicing and developing strong sounding bebop lines and gives specific examples to demonstrate the concept. This is a lesson from a real performer so it’s real practical application rather than just theory! Some bebop lessons that I’ve encountered at times tend to be dry and removed from the melodic flow and intensity of the real music.”
~ Az Samad
“Sheryl lays out the material in a very intelligent & organized manner! Her concept is nothing short of brilliant.”
~ Steven Larcovic
“I think this is simply the best instructional video I’ve ever seen. Very practical, very clear, sick lines. Sheryl is just an amazing teacher who not only teaches very well but plays smoking lines too. By the end of the video you finally understand the concept of substitions and how to play the bebop scale.

“Sheryl Bailey, in addition to being an outstanding musician and performer, does a great job of communicating concepts to students. Application of the Micro-cosmic bebop line to the family of 4 plus 1 chords came very easily after taking this lesson. I started working the line into ii-Vs in a bunch of tunes my quartet performs. This is how I run through keys, by pushing myself to use new ideas in tunes. The application to tritone subs was excellent. Great lesson…thanks!”

“This is a great lesson for anyone who wants to understand the Bebop language with easy and fast. Results are immediately practical.
Sheryl founded a way to make it really simple and understandable.
5 chords and just one dominant Bebop scale and you’re ready to go for it.
Thanks Sheryl you did a great job, we’re waiting for part two.”
“Another great insight from Sheryl. I have been working with the Bebop scales for awhile and were hit and a lot of miss, but this lesson put’s it all into perspective and now getting some great new sounds in my lines. “
