    50 Jazz Guitar Licks - #3 Whole Tone / Chromatics


    by jazzguitarsite

    The TAB is at Here is lick #3 from "50 Must Know Jazz Guitar Licks." The whole tone scale is partly used here, and it can be played over a dominant 7th chord. You may also hear a lick like this in a jazz guitar solo over a 7th chord. Some of the notes found in the whole tone scale serve as alterations to a dominant, and these notes include the 9th, #11th, and #5th. Check out George Benson and Pat Martino for more examples. And let me know if you would like more whole tone licks!
