Ex­am­ple4 Wayne Shorter

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Over the F7, Wayne Shorter moves up F Mixoly­dian, im­ply­ing Cm7 and F7 on beats 3 and 4, then mov­ing into Bb Mixoly­dian over the Bb7 and an­tic­i­pat­ing the F7, com­ing down F Mixoly­dian and throw­ing in an im­plied C7b9 – F7 res­o­lu­tion. Over the Bb7, he comes down Bb Mixoly­dian with a chro­matic pass­ing note, throw­ing in an im­plied Fm7 and in the next bar, sug­gest­ing Bb Ly­dian b7 and C7b9 re­solv­ing back to F7. Over the D7#9, C7 and Bb7 chords he moves into a char­ac­ter­is­tic laid-back de­scend­ing 4ths idea, and closes on a sim­ple, sparse as­cend­ing rhyth­mic fig­ure.
