Watch the Donna Lee Thing online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Lexicon
Donna Lee Thing - Lick 2 is a video guitar lesson presented by Sheryl Bailey and is sourced from 50 Essential Bebop Licks You MUST Know.
This line is reminiscent of the opening line of the Charlie Parker gem "Donna Lee." It uses the Bbmaj bebop scale, which is a scale with a passing note between the 6th and 5th. Also, the triplet rhythm of this line is an important theme in many bebop lines.
