Watch the Jazz Melodic Minor Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
In this musical example, I'll show you how you can use the Jazz Melodic Minor scale over a static C minor sound. The example I'm giving here is done much in the style of how Grant Green would use this sound. You can hear this type of idea all over Grant's recordings. While we're in a minor setting here, this same idea can also be applied to other chords to bring out related harmonies. It's a very powerful sound that I'm sure you'll dig.
