Swing this line, and tap your foot on 2 and 4. When you really get this line, play it as fast as you can in different keys.

This is also a great bebop line. I always mix bebop with blues with soul. Why? In reality, they all use the same tools. Blues lines, chromaticism, minor and major chords. Listen to bebop players as well as rock musicians and you'll start to hear all the similar notes in their solos. Interesting, right? This line could be played in a swing band, a rock band, or a jazz band. All for the price of a single line!
