Here we see a lit­tle of Larry’s Joe Pass in­flu­ence, with a full 12-bar cho­rus against a jazz blues in the key of C. The trick to sound­ing like Larry is to hit the chord tones on de­mand, so en­sure that you know which notes are in which chords, and to es­tab­lish clear melodic themes that can re­peated, de­vel­oped and mod­i­fied to cre­ate a log­i­cal and co­he­sive mu­si­cal flow. No­tice how the rhythms are re­peated through­out this solo, with the po­ten­tial to ex­ploit each mu­si­cal idea fully.
