Watch the Counterclockwise online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Soul Jazz Licks You MUST Know
This is inspired by George Bensons performance on a tune called "Clockwise" off his album "Cookbook". It's a G7 idea with a funky, soulful sound. It begins with notes out of the arpeggio and goes down to the b5 of the blues scale and stays in that sound for the remainder of the lick. The idea is also played out of the guitar-friendly minor pentatonic fingering which makes it very approachable.
