In this lesson we will look at some examples of the amazing improvisational technique and performance of jazz guitar great Pat Martino.
Example 1-Minor Topic. In this line we move via D Dorian and the D melodic minor. Interest is created by employing some colourful chromaticism that also gives continuity to the line. These long fluid lines employ a double timed 16ths feel with an upbeat that creates/anticipates forward movement.
Example 2-This is an outside sounding line that exploits chromaticism with E whole tone and A altered scales.
Example 3-In this line we can see Pat Martinio’s unique use of Arpeggios, Intervals and Scales.
Example 4- In this last example we delve into another one of Pat’s long fluid 16th jazz lines. This time there are two bars played over a static C7 chord. In this line we find, Mixolydian, Lydian Dominant, triad inversions, dyad/ 3rds and chromatic resolution.
