By the time Pat Martino was 25 yrs old he was already a jazz guitar legend. In fact, when a young and fiery George Benson first heard Pat upon his arrival to New York in the 1960‘s he famously said "I almost took the bus back home."

This is a great open string lick in 6/8 from the song "Line Games" on Pat's landmark fusion album "Joyous Lake." I love how Pat repeats the lick over multiple phrases while the harmony changes beneath it. Classic! "
