Michael Brecker Chromatic Jazz Guitar Line Exercise

PLEASE: Watch video above for detailed analysis:

This Michael Brecker sax line is an excellent exercise for alternate picking guitar technique. The key is to accent the 1st and 3rd notes [Downstrokes] as this will keep the chromatic 4 note “Even” groupings smooth.

The employment of chromaticism and target tones [deliberately “Even” for alternate picking] scale fragments and an arpeggio makes this an extremely useful exercise for linking together improvising ingredients.

Hi Guys,

Here is another Alternate Picking John Mclaughlin jazz/fusion guitar lick. This is based on a variation of a 2 5 1 with F/Eb substituted for Dm7 going to G7#5b9 to CMaj7.

As you can see above the first part employs the C melodic minor scale whilst the second part employs the C Harmonic minor scale.

The only odd note being a Bb [Not of C Harmonic minor scale] for colour and because the B natural has already been heard.
