phil hilborne’s one-Minute lick

Gypsy en­cir­clement lick

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

This lick is the sort of phrase that you will hear in gypsy jazz. it’s based on chord tones and scale notes. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing chord is G ma­jor (G-B-D) and the idea is to ‘en­cir­cle’ each chord tone by play­ing the scale note above, then a chord tone and then a semi­tone be­low the chord tone; then an­other chord tone. i use just fin­gers 1,2 and 3, as this is the way most gypsy jazzers would play it; it’s also eas­ier to play up to speed like this. But feel free to use what­ever works for you. And try to com­pose ideas of your own us­ing the same con­cept around dif­fer­ing chord types.
