Watch the V-IV-I Change: D2 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues Assembly Lines

Let's take one more look at some cool possibilities for bars nine through twelve. This one opens with a highly melodic jazz lick against the G7, featuring classic bebop chromaticism to enhance a standard modal approach. The lick over the F7 begins in similar fashion, but quickly dovetails into F major blues instead of remaining melodic. The final two-bar lick over the C7 chord combines three on four phrasing and the use of country sixths that move down the fingerboard on two string sets.
