We are taking a break from bass lines this week to talk about a very cool scale you can use to embellish and improvise on a dominant seventh chord. It is called the Spanish or Jewish scale

I It has a very mysterious, middle eastern sound which I absolutely love. Under the YouTube video you will see the scale degrees with the alterations.
Give it a try with different chords going around the circle of fourths so your ears become really comfortable with the sound. I think you will grow to love it like I do!
