Watch the Honeysuckle Sweetness online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 30 Jazz Arpeggio Licks You MUST Know

Here's another ii-V lick over the opening progression to the great standard "Honeysuckle Rose". We begin by playing a minor 7th chord arpeggio and then move to play an E diminished arpeggio over the C7 chord. In doing so, we're able to bring out the sound of a C7b9 chord. Bringing in this kind of tension with arpeggios can be a great skill to add to your toolbox - it can help to expand the breadth of your improvisation repertoire.
