I'm having trouble creating bebop lines.

The phrasing sounds correct, but the problem I'm having is that my lines sound extremely diatonic. I don't really know where to pull from other sources besides just the chord.

If anyone could give me an example line or a video that I can kind of dissect, I'd really appreciate it.


You can add some chromaticism to your lines. This will make them sound less diatonic.
