Ballad Series – Part 5 (LOTW #45)

Here is more of a cliche line you here a lot over the D-7. The outline of the chord tones and chromatic resolution to the third of G7. I do really enjoy the augmented sound over the G7. Going up from the third and using the #5(b13) sound. We resolve to the fifth of Cmaj7 on the G.

Points for practicing this lick:

  • Ballad lines can be simple as well.
  • Look for ways to use extensions over the dominant 7th chords.

Enjoy!
