The first jazz arpeggio lick is one that can work in a variety of settings. You may have recognized the sound of this line in such legendary guitarists like Charlie Christian. This is a musical idea that comes out of the sound of the major 6th chord arpeggio that can be used in a variety of settings, including over major chords, dominant chords like we see in a blues, as well as various progressions. This one is a good foundation to build your arpeggio lick repertoire.
