DOMINANT ARPEGGIO/SCALE LICK
This month’s lick features an ascending dominant arpeggio line that uses elements of triads (three-note chords), chordal extensions and short, scale-based ideas. Combining different concepts in this way often makes for less predictable and more musically interesting lines. I have notated it using a mixture of sweep picking, slide and legato - as this is obviously how I play it. However, do feel free to experiment with any other methods that you might prefer. As always, try to come up with other similar licks of your own in varying keys, tempos and styles….
