Watch the Track 1: Say What online guitar lesson by Sheryl Bailey from Trading Solos: Bebop

The secret to making this simple chord progression sound slick is in the comping rhythms: Locking in with the rhythm section to really be a section, strong together to support the soloist. In the first chorus, I just lock in with the R.S., using an open sounding min7/11 voicing.

In the 2nd chorus, I lock in with a syncopated rhythm, keep it in the pocket and steady to make the groove heavier. Also, I imply a II-7 V7 progression on the static Dorian sound: This is commonly used by bebop players to create harmonic motion: "waves on top of stillness"

On the last chorus of comping, I use the II-7 V7 sound, but share some variations in the voicings by adding 9's and 13's, to sweeten the sound. The licks I've shared with you follow the concept of creating a II-7 V7 line over the static Dorian: Lick #1 uses the G7 bebop scale combined with a Dmin7 arp. Lick #2 outlines a Bmin7b5 over the Dmin7 - that equals a dim6 sound! Lick #3 outlines an Fmaj7 arpeggio against the Dmin7 - that equals Dmin7/9. So, the trick is to imply harmony against a static modal jam.
