Watch the Major 7th online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 50 Jazz Guitar Licks You MUST Know
This lick begins on the 9th, here a D, and relies on pull-offs to move down to the B - the major 7th. Use simple pull-offs, one finger at a time to get to the first B, then utilize a scalar pattern to descend to the next. The lick then features a hammer-on, pull-off move to arrive at the 6th, or A. This essential lick is courtesy of Joe Pass and is effective in many keys and tempos - try a few!
