Hey everybody, what I just played is a long 251 lick in the key of CM. And these piece begins with some pickup notes. We’ve got a D to E to begin on beat four prior to the two chord and we’re going to do those seven, nine here on the G string. And so the next two beats, the first two beats of the two chord, we’ve got [demonstration]. So we’re doing 10, eight, nine, 10 or F, G, E, F [demonstration].
All right, next we have [demonstration]. So that’s just to climb up to Dm scale, seven, nine, 10, eight or D, E, F, G. So let’s practice that much. One, two, a one, two, three.
All right, now let’s move to the five chord and this lick is pretty cool because it features an altered dominant sound. We’re starting here on the B flat which is the sharp nine [demonstration]. So we’re going to play that for a quarter note and then we’ve got this neat little triplet deal here [demonstration].
All right, I typically, whenever I have triplet licks that go down the strings, I just sweep them because that’s once you get the lick going at a fast tempo that’s going to be pretty much doing whether you’re going to be able to play it in time, if you’re playing with the band, you’re playing at a fast tempo. So 11, nine, eight, nine. So let’s do that much. One, two, a one, two, three.
Then the last two notes of the lick are eight, 11 [demonstration].
All right, pause if you need to, practice it up and do the whole thing. So here’s the little thing. One, two, one, two, three.
All right, that’s the whole lick. That’s a 251 in CM and as I mentioned before, over the dominant chord where I’m implying like an altered dominant chord such as—I’ve got dominant seven, sharp five with a flat nine or a sharp nine as well. So have fun with that lick and transpose it to any key you want and use it in your favorite tunes when you’re playing a solo.
