Jazz Chord Lick in G Major - Lead Jazz Guitar Lesson


How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan
and I’m here with guitarcontrol.com, excited
to bring you this lesson. What we’re working
on right now is a jazz chord lick. This is
just something that could be played all over
a G major chord.

What I dig about this is on top there’s a
melody which happens to be like a pentatonic
blues lick. That kind of sounding thing.
But I harmonize the entire lick with a chord,
and this chord is a 6-9, which here’s a great
jazz voicing: 2nd fret, 2nd fret, 3rd fret,
3rd fret. So I’m literally moving that entire
chord in parallel motion up the guitar.

Here is your 6-9 chord, starting on G then B flat,
then C and then D, sliding into it, C, B flat,
C and home to G. So the concept is simple. It’s all
one chord and the it’s just a pentatonic lick,
but it sounds so good. That might be something
that you might not have thought of.

Be sure to click the link below and
practice that lick. We’ll see you in the next lesson.
