101 Guitar Licks - Jazz Lick #1 (Major ii V)
By Dan Palladino

Welcome to 101 Guitar Licks. This lick is in the key of Bb major. This will definitely be useful in a jazz context, but will also work over rock tunes that use the C Dorian scale.

Jazz standards tend to contain many ii-V progressions, where C-7 = ii, F9 = V, Bb = I. Try practicing this lick in descending whole-step or half-step patterns, as in a bebop tune. The hammer-on and pull-off markings are included as suggestions only. If these techniques aren't your style, feel free to pick every note. Have fun! --DP
