Watch the Descending Ace online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Variations

Descending Ace - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Brad Carlton and is sourced from Chord Studies: Jazz Funk Vol. 1.

Just like in some of our previous examples, here we have a melody occurring on the first string. We've got an ascending chromatic melody moving from G to G# between chords 01 and 02. Moving from the E7/6 to the E9 with no 3 all four fingers will be guide fingers. Note the nice "open" sound of the E9 because of the omitted 3.
