How’s it going everybody?
My name is John McClennan and I’m here
today with guitarcontrol.wpmudev.host, bringing
you this lesson. This is a lick in the
style of Pat Martino, one of my favorite
jazz players, just a monster guitar player.
And his right hand is just so articulate
and so clean and so fast. If you haven’t
checked him out, you should go to Google
right now, type his name in and check him out.

Anyway, here we are, we’re playing over
and E minor 7 chord. And here’s a nice
voicing. I’ve got 2nd fret, 5th fret,
4th fret, 3rd fret, 2nd fret. B minor 7,
and what we’re going to do is we’re going
to start on the 10th fret here for the lick,
10, 9, 12, 11, 10, slide and then this is
like a D triad.

One of the things that’s great about this
is if you think about this D triad that I
was just saying here, 10th fret, 11th fret,
12th fret, that’s all giving you these
really nice color tones on top of your E minor.

For instance, if I play an A minor voicing
right there, incorporate some of those notes,
this here, you’d get an E minor 11. So already
it gives you a jazz sound with the extended
harmony. You’re not just playing A minor,
you’re getting all that color into the chord
so when you solo with those kinds of lines,
it definitely gives you a hip sound.

So one more time slowly. Try this with me.
You don’t have to play the E at the end,
the low E. You can just play this E.
And then the chord.
