A nice outline of chord tones over the D-7 then making our way up to the #9 and b9 of the G7. There are our extensions again over our dominant chord. We resolve down to the third of our Cmaj7 chord and finish with a nice little chromatic line starting on the 5th of Cmaj7 and resoloving to the 13. The rhythms are a little tricky and so is the fingering, but with a little practice you’ll get it! Enjoy!
Points for practicing this lick:
- Add constrasting rhythms in the ballads
- Fill in the the space with rhythms
- Extensions over the dominant chord
- Lots of tension and release options
