play over a C7 chord, meant to be swingy...da da -da da - da da, or something like that. this is an 8 note scale but it's run from C note on G string to G note on E string.

C D Eb E F# G A B C D Eb E F# G

would recommend sliding 1st finger from Eb to E on D string.

would be very interested to know what any one thinks of this

Thanks.

well, there's more to this. two additional scales with the same notes that sound quite different depending on the tonic. all 3 as follows: 

1. C D Eb E F# G A B C (this was the first one listed)

2. A B C D Eb E F# G A 

3. E F# G A B C D Eb E

I describe them as follows:

1. major-ish swingy

2. minor-ish bluesy

3. pure minor (aeolian)

fairly easy to remember because they are all the same notes with different tonics. this 'formula' works for all 12 keys, but it gets pretty crazy (for me anyways) when the tonics of any or all of them go into Bb, Eb, Ab etc.
