Watch the Phrygian Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
The sound of jazz incorporates influences from around the world. This helps to give the music a very wide variety of sounds that are associated with it.
In this lesson, I'm going to teach you a musical idea based out of the Phrygian mode. However, this is going to be different in groove and feel. The backing track for this comes from the Afro-Cuban tradition with the time signature being 6/8. It's a very cool sounding idea that has wide ranging applications.
