Watch the Major 7th online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 50 Jazz Guitar Licks You MUST Know
This lick has been used by all of the greats. The idea is to outline the major 7th arpeggio and then finish up with a major 9th to major 7th move - ending on the major 7th is a great way to wrap up a major chord. You can invert this lick to create a descending pattern again using the major 7th arpeggio. This concept offers up the foundation for creating cool licks that continue to be an integral part of jazz guitar's vocabulary.
