How to Play The Jazz Chord Lick in G Major

Jazz Chord Lick in G Major -- Lead Jazz Guitar Lesson
Jazz Chord Lick in G Major - Lead Jazz Guitar Lesson How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan and I’m here with, 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 that 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.
