It's not all scales and arpeggios when it comes to jazz guitar licks!! This video is showing 10 ways to come up with new licks using different ideas that are not all based on the notes. This can really open up your vocabulary and make your solos more interesting as I talk about methods working with dynamics, melodic direction and rhythm.

Some of the examples are also borrowing techniques from artists like Jim Hall, Bill Evans and Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this discussion on creating jazz licks helpful!!

Please check back next week for another lesson, and in the meantime please catch up with me on my website and social media pages!!
