Major 7th - Lick 2 is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Vignola and is sourced from 50 Jazz Guitar Licks You MUST Know.


This must-know lick is based on Barney Kessel's take on a classic Charlie Parker riff. The lick begins on the 5th, then moves chromatically from the D up to the 3rd, the E. The phrase ends on the 2nd, in this instance D. Learn this lick in other positions to drill down on your fingerboard knowledge. Try singing the lick as you play to really nail it.
