Major Extension is a video guitar lesson presented by Tom Dempsey and is sourced from 30 Jazz Arpeggio Licks You MUST Know
In this arpeggio lick, we move into an extended idea that is eight measures long. The entire lick could actually be divided into several smaller licks, but together, this shows how we can piece together various phrases to form a longer idea.
This arpeggio lick is in the key of Eb major and can be played over a static Eb6 sonority as well as a common progression found in the key of Eb. Check out how this is put together through motivic development and make sure you check it out in other keys as well.
