Watch the Two Five Passing online guitar lesson by Tom Wolfe from 50 Hard Bop Blues Licks You MUST Know

This next lick is for the last 4 bars of the blues and incorporates a very common jazz chord progression - the ii-V progression. It uses the major 7th arpeggio, but it also uses chromatic passing tones to connect the phrase. So, while playing over the Bb7 dominant chord that has a flatted-7th, the phrase uses a major 7th passing tone to link the root of Bb7 to the flatted-7th. This type of connectivity in music is very common and an integral component of Wes Montgomery's style.
