Turnarounds can be tough to play over. If you don’t nail them it can sound very strange coming back to the top of a tune. If you have questions or requests please leave them in the comments section and I will accommodate.

Points for practicing this lick:

  • Starting on the 9 of D-7
  • Going to the 3rd of A7 jumping to the b9 of A7
  • Coming down G7 diatonically to the third
  • Outlining G7 with chord tones
  • Approaching the 3rd of Cmaj7 with whole step below, to half step below
