    from Jerry Bergonzi’s book “Developing A Jazz Language”

    They're all written for Bb 7, but can easily be transposed to work over any dominant chord or its relative minor (F-7 for Bb7).

    Treble staff, no tab.

    I have a ton of backing tracks from my alto teacher back in high school. Its in G but there are tons of tracks of a rhythm section (bass, drums, piano) playing over changes, from a simple blues or I-VI-II-V to more crazy stuff like use of secondary dominants or tritone substitutions. And it's got bossa sections of every mode ;)
    If anyone is interested PM me. It's probably upwards of 500 MB worth of mp3's but I can upload it if anyone is interested!

    Could you make a torrent file out of it? You can host it on Mininova.

    GREAT idea..

    Here's a symmetric diminished sequence you can play on dominant chords (5s) and 13ths etc... popular with sax and piano players...



    and how about this classic bebop 2-5-1 jazz lick



    and this minor 2-5-1 jazz lick




    ENJOY :shred:

    Hey guys. I'd like to start getting into jazz guitar. Does anyone know of a good (free) website or something where I can start to learn? These licks and stuff are great, but I'd like to find something in-depth. Thanks!

    I dunno what you call the general idea, but it's kinda jazzy.

    Basically you play a couple notes with rests between most of the notes. Think something a horn might play. You can use that one scale from the YouTube video where the guy shows you how to play outside of the key center so long so you resolve to a chord tone. I forget what it's called, but there is a classical idea where you can resolve a minor idea to the major third that might sound good as well.

    Even cooler if the notes you play contribute to an interesting theme and great to break up the general monotony of endless notes. Helps break up the solo and allows you to go down a different path.

    I know it's not really much of a lick so much as an idea, but just thought I'd share cuz it seems kinda jazzy to me.
