Ex­am­ple5 Dou­ble time turn­around lick

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: R&B -

Charlie Parker pi­o­neered dou­ble time phras­ing in the early days of bebop jazz and it re­mains an ef­fec­tive im­pro­vis­ing tool to this day. No­tice how the Db chord in the first bar is 'ig­nored' by forc­ing a G Phry­gian Dom­i­nant scale (mode 5 of the Melodic Mi­nor) over both chords. The II chord of any II-V pro­gres­sion can al­ways be ig­nored in this way, since in this con­text it sim­ply func­tions as a V7­sus4.
