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

You may remember Jan Hammer from his success after composing the theme song for the hit 80’s tv show Miami Vice. He also happens to be one of the greatest keyboardists in the world and a pioneer in jazz rock fusion. Jan’s work with the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham, Jeff Beck and Al DiMeola is absolutely killer!

This lick is based out of the C Dominant Pentatonic scale and it’s really fun to play.

Try using a wide vibrato here and imagine you’re manipulating a keyboard’s pitch wheel!
