Enjoy this lick using the tritone of our V7 chord in the key of C. We are replacing the Db7 for the G7 and using our Db7 lydian scale, meaning #11, to solo over the tritone. This creates a very unique sound over a 2-5-1. I then added the lydian scale over the Cmaj7 as well with a over the bar line rhythmic pattern. If you have questions or requests please leave them in the comments section and I will accommodate. Enjoy!

Points for practicing this lick:

  • Simple diatonic D Dorian over the D-7
  • Db7 Lydian outline. Adding the #11 ( G Natural)
  • Cmaj7 lydian, over the barline rhythmic pattern
