Alright so this lick is a little bit more complicated rhythmically but if you practice these triplets and one grouping of 5 you will start to have a lot more in your repertoire bank. Theres also a nice two note combination in the first measure that I love using. Melodically not too much going on here. The blues scale in the first three measures. In the fourth measure we approach the third of the C-7 chord then add the b13, #9 and b9 of the F7 chord to approach the fifth of the Bb7 chord. Enjoy!

Points for practicing this lick:

  • Practice different rhythms besides eighth notes in your solo’s
  • Two note combinations are great textures to use
  • Can add more than one extension over dominant chords during your solo
