John Mclaughlin establishes the Dm7 tonality and then chromatically slips into the altered sound with the EbmMaj7. The Eb note then resolves up to the E natural. The resolution is finally established the F major arpeggio to create Dm7.

In the next bar John employs Db Lydian Harmony over the G7b5 chord. [The b5 of G7 of course being the Db note]. John keeps the G natural note to establish G7 and at the same time establish the #11 of Db harmony.

TRIBUTE TO JAZZ GUITAR VIRTUOSO LEGEND PAT MARTINO: JAZZ EXAMPLES

Example 1-Minor Topic. In this line we move via D Dorian and 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 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.

Alternate Picking “Off beat” Jazz Fusion Guitar Lesson

The key to alternate picking with the guitar pick when dealing with jazz improvisation and jazz fusion improvisation is to be aware of the off -beat. In these two little examples we simply miss the 1st beat.

Remember that the 2nd note of a group of 16ths will be an “Off-beat” and an “Upstroke”. But, if you start on the “Off-beat” with a down stroke then the patterns will be opposite to what they would be starting on the beat. This may sound confusing but is “paradoxically” natural and an easy way to create and control ‘syncopation”, literally cutting off the first note.

You can do this anywhere in the bar, but to begin with it is best explained through the two short example alternate picking exercises.

This phrase below is a little “Off-beat” phrase found in the John Mclaughlin album/CD called “Belo Herozonte.

Below we use sextuplets and miss out the first beat. [Count the silent beat but pluck the string starting on the 2nd off beat].
