The Super Locrian Scale On Guitar

The Super Locrian scale is exotic sounding and used a lot in jazz and fusion.It's formula is...
... 1-b2-b3-3-b5-b6-b7-1.It has some whole tone intervals in it.It works over a m7b5 chord and a dom..7b5 or dom.7#5.So we are talking primarily about turnaround chords,the 2 or 5,that the Super Locrian is played over.The 2 minor being a flat 5,and the 5 chord being a dom.7b5 or a dom7 with a #5.So add Super Locrian to your jazz arsenal :-).It is a must for turnarounds!
