Jazz Guitar Lick in the Style of Wes Montgomery

Jazz Guitar Lick in the Style of Wes Montgomery -- Lead Jazz Guitar Lesson



Jazz Guitar Lick in the Style of Wes Montgomery - Lead Jazz Guitar Lesson

How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan and
I’m here with guitarcontrol.com, showing you
another lick here from one of the masters,
Wes Montgomery. This is a great lick. I love it.
It’s from a tune called “Missile Blues” and this
part of the lick is so great because it sounds like
a bluesy pentatonic line harmonized with diminished chords.

The line is like… And then you’ve got these diminished
chords. It’s like a simple blues lick, right? That kind
of thing. But then you get this sound. It’s like, holy cow.
It’s unbelievable how you can just take a simple idea, like
a pentatonic lick, harmonize it with the diminished and it’s
like where would you come up with that? So here we go.

The chords here are a diminished shape and it’s moving in
parallel motion across the guitar. I’ve got 5, 6, 5, 6 and
then I move that up a whole step, then up a half, then I go
back down those same chords, ending here on a G diminished,
which is 2, 3, 2, 3. And then going to the G6-9 chord there.
So you’ve got this lick. G sharp diminished started on the
3rd fret: 3, 4, 3, 4. G13, this is the resolution: 3, 4, 5,
3. So you go from this…

So here’s the whole thing slowly. Sounds amazing.

So click the link below and get the tab for this and we’ll
see you in the next lesson. Thanks for watching.
