Watch the Free Spirit online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 Jazz Rock Licks You MUST Know

Larry Coryell is considered by many to be the first jazz rock guitarist. When most guitarists were still tied to archtops and playing traditional jazz, Larry and "The Free Spirits" were breaking new ground by combining jazz with rock music.

While his influence isn’t as widespread as fellow guitarist and fusion pioneer John McLaughlin, Larry is unquestionably one of the greatest guitarists in the genre. I particularly dig his earlier 70’s work with famed vibraphonist Gary Burton.

"Free Spirit" is based on the C Bebop Dominant Scale (C -D- E- F- G- A - Bb - B - C) and it’s inspired by Larry Coryell’s bop infused jazz rock playing.

"Bop" licks are used extensively in jazz rock fusion and can be attributed back to Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Christian, among other legends of Bebop.

You’ll hear this sound used a lot over dominant 7th chords in the playing of Larry Coryell, in addition to John Scofield and Mike Stern among others. Players who are deeply rooted in the jazz tradition and like to rock out! Make sure you swing the 8th notes.
