How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan and
I’m here with guitarcontrol.wpmudev.host, bringing you this
lesson. What the heck was that? That was a crazy,
out diminished sounding lick, a lick that uses
notes and devices that come from the diminished
scale. So check this out.
The chord that I’m playing this over is a G7,
basically a dominant chord and a typical practice
within the jazz idiom is playing the diminished
scale over this, sort of like your half-step,
whole-step sound over the G7, making it a G7
flat 9. So click the link below so you can
follow along with the tab, but here’s the lick
We’ve got… What I’m doing here is 5, 4, 3, 6,
sliding up to 9. And then I come down this crazy
shape, just one finger per fret, moving from one
string to that next; every note is on a new string.
Then it repeats the same thing and then you end here.
All right, click the link below for the tab and
we’ll see you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
