2 5 1 Jazz Lick

Let’s learn a sweet sounding 2 5 1 jazz guitar lick. It’s played over the chords Dm7 (2 chord) G7#5 (5 chord) and Cmaj9 (1 chord).

I have analyzed the lick in terms of scales over each chord, but that’s just for understanding the relation between the two. The MOST important thing is to make the line sound good and melodic. I think this one does. What do you think?

You should never, ever just ramble on scales for each chord, because that isn’t musical at all. Always focus on melodic lines that fit the song or the chord progression.

Let me know if you have any questions!
