This short lick incorporates John Mclaughlin’s main left hand fingerings that he employs when improvising jazz/fusion guitar lines. He ascends and descends using pentatonics, tetrachords, arpeggios and quartal groupings.

In this lick I employ strict alternate picking with the right hand for tight rhythmic 4 note [Tetrachord] groupings.

Today we look at employing alternate picking with chords on the guitar.

The alternate picking group of 4 semiquavers [16ths] notes start with an upstroke. “Up Down Up Down”. This little lick/motif joins the two chords together and creates a compositional movement.

Alternate Picking Guitar Acoustic Fusion

This little alternate picking guitar exercise is taken from John Mclaughlin’s acoustic jazz fusion C.D “Belo Herozonte”.

Although this is a simple and short exercise it displays the way to open up and extend long fluid alternate picking improvised jazz fusion guitar lines.

You can either employ orthodox fingering or the fingering that I use.
