Application

This scale can be used in Jazz and Blues. From 1940 in Bebop the fifth (G) was more often played as a Blue-Note. The so called «flatted fifth»is the blue-Note between G and F#.

The expanded Mixolydian Blues scale is very similar to the Minor Bebop scale.
Die erweiterte Mixolydische Blues-Skala ist der Moll-BeBop-Skala sehr ähnlich.
