Watch the Chasing The Ninth online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from 30 Beginner Jazz Licks You MUST Know
Home stretch! Listen to how the 9th (F#) sounds against the E 1/2 diminished chord. It's a very typical modern jazz sound, and very sweet yet dissonant at the same time. Also keep an eye out for little chord shapes in your licks. Here we find a little Bb minor triad shape that outlines the cool notes in A7 - b9, b13, and 3rd. Play around with that minor triad shape. It's good to rake up or down to come up with fun rhythms.
