Killer Jazzy Lick


Hey guys, here’s a guitar lick from John Maclennan and
has a really catchy jazz sound to it. It’s played over
a “II V I” progression, the most common jazz chord
progression.


Check it out!



Hi, I’m John McClennan and I’m here today with
Guitar Control and I’m excited to bring you this
jazzy lick. Basically, it’s going over a II-V-I,
which is one of the most common chord progressions
in jazz. Again, we’re going to look at an
A minor 7 chord, a D9 and a G major 7.
This will be… Just a quick II-V-I that you’ll
see in a lot of standards.

The lick starts right here on the root of the chord
of A minor, goes back a half step. So let me break
that down for you. You’ve got 7, 6, 7, 4, 5, 4, 5,
7, 5, 8, 5, 6, 7, 5, 7, 5, 4, 5. Again, it ends with
a typical thing that you’ll hear in jazz, and that’s
the rhythm ending on one-and, so you have sort of a…
Lots of Charlie Parker, he might… Same kind of thing.
Instantly, using that is going to give you that jazzier sound.

Let’s go through the lick one more time slowly. Here we go.

Again, click the link below for the tab and we’ll see
you in the next lesson. Thanks for watching.
