From the early 1920s, jazz musicians attempted to make their improvised lines flow more smoothly by connecting scales and scale tones through the use of chromatic passing tones. During that period of time such jazz giants as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Wes Montgomery and Bud Powell began adding an extra half step to the major scale and the modes derived from it (i.e., dorian mixolydian, and locrian). This technique has the effect of making the scales rhythmically symmetrical when played in eighth notes, as most lines were at the time. For instance, a major scale played in eighth notes with the extra half step added.

If you have started to check out transcriptions or licks by Charlie Parker, Pat Martino, George Benson or Mike Stern, you’ll have come across bebop scales in the lines of these great players. Ben Monder, Allan Holdsworth, Adam Rogers also have bebop scales in their musical arsenal.

The "Bebop Scales on Guitar" is the one app that represent a big number of bebop scales in a very simple and visual way on your iPhone / iPad. There's no analogue in App Store!!!
