Watch the Twisting With Bird online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from 30 Beginner Jazz Licks You MUST Know

This lick is much less complicated than it sounds. If you study the lick slowly, you'll notice that it simply outlines a major chord. For example, the first version of the lick uses a G chord as its starting point - a G chord is spelled G-B-D.

This lick simply leads to each note of the chord from above and then from below.  A - G, then Bb - B, then E - D, then F# - G, C - B, C# - D and A - G. If you keep your eyes on the G chord notes, then the rest of the lick is not so confusing. But you have to really know the chord notes. Make sure to practice the chord notes first until you have them really clear.

Many, if not most jazz licks come from leading to notes in a chord from above and below. These notes are called - fancy theory term here - "approach" notes because they "approach" each note in the chord from a step above or a step below. The approach note could be a 1/2 step or whole step above or below the target chord tone. That's one of the reasons it is so important to know your chord arpeggios! 90% of jazz licks come from leading to and away from the chord notes found in arpeggios. An arpeggio is simply a chord played in single notes. (Check out the block diagrams at the bottom of Lick 10 PDF) For example, a G9 chord is spelled G-B-D-F-A. A G7 arpeggio is spelled the same, just with the notes played individually, not all at once as in a chord. Practice playing all of your 7th and 9th chord arpeggios from the low E and A strings. This is essential guitar stuff. Practice these in all positions and keys, and then go to bed.
