Here's the first in a mini series of free lessons in which I'm aiming to demonstrate how you can add some extra colour to your solos by adding just one note to the pentatonic scale. This lesson contains four licks in Cm, with added "blue note"!
Sunny jazz standard is one of the most famous jazz songs of all time. In this jazz fusion lesson I will show you some licks in the style of Greg Howe/Brett Garsed that you can use in every 2-5 progression and ideas that you can play over minor, major and altered dominant chords.
The two distinguishing features here are the use of the 7/8 time signature, and the different motion of the harmonies. The arpeggios move in different patterns and the result is that the interval between the notes changes every time. The idea was to create a web of sound where the two parts merge into each other.
