Watch the Major 7th online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Major 7th - Lick 3 is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Vignola and is sourced from 50 Jazz Guitar Licks You MUST Know.


This lick begins on the 9th, here a D, and relies on pull-offs to move down to the B - the major 7th. Use simple pull-offs, one finger at a time to get to the first B, then utilize a scalar pattern to descend to the next. The lick then features a hammer-on, pull-off move to arrive at the 6th, or A. This essential lick is courtesy of Joe Pass and is effective in many keys and tempos - try a few!
