Watch the Nine Means Nine online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from 50 Jump Blues Licks You MUST Know

Charlie Christian's use of guitar chord shapes as a jump board for solo licks will guarantee a non linear arpeggio style phrasing. Playing chord tones means playing in the harmonic pocket. Add some chromatic fill notes and you will get that typical Charlie Christian sound - fresh and open. This lick adds another chord shape combination -a ninth chord and a thirteenth chord.
