Watch the Chromatics & Whole Tone online guitar lesson by Reinier Voet from 50 Gypsy Jazz Licks You MUST Know
Licks using the whole tone scale have a very specific character. Django Reinhardt and many other Gypsy jazz guitar players have integrated these advanced licks and runs into their solos. This specific whole tone lick is also great for practicing your plectrum technique, because the run incorporates two downstrokes when you change strings. This is very typical for Gypsy jazz picking.
