Alternate Fingering Freddie Hubbard Jazz lick

Posted on April 29, 2009 by Sweets

This is a cool sounding Freddie Hubbard signature lick. You hear Freddie Hubbard play this alternate fingering lick on a lot of different tunes in a lot of different variations.

Alternate fingering Freddie Hubbard lick - Jazz lick 19

Here is a sound sample played on trumpet:

With this lick, you don’t really have to learn it in 12 keys. The lick itself only works well in the above key because of the ease of use with the alternate fingerings involved. You can use this lick over C major, G7, or D minor. It works well over a lot of stuff when you run out of ideas, just kidding. Experiment with the lick and make it your own.

    This site is “Great”. It inspired me to start practicing again. When I played professionally, I performed many bands, jazz Quintets, Latin & Show Bands, Big Bands such as the “Duke Pierson Big Band,” & Lee Castle. Also performed with Bobby Cruz & Ricardo Ray (Latin Bands), The National Bank (A&M Records), Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons, Jay & The Americans, Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels etc.
    I now play an occasional gig or sit in and jam when the opportunity arises.
    I miss it.
    Thanks for the Treat

    Hey – I am really enjoying learning from this site! You are a great player. Are you a teacher? If not, you should be. I am a 49YO player who played by ear and was terrified of chord charts – now you have unlocked that fear for me. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    Sirs, I am interested in purchasing a book on ‘alternate,’
    or, ‘auxiliary’ fingering primarily for jazz trumpet.
    Where & how can I go about doing this? I would be very
    grateful for any information you can give. Thanks
    Frank

    I’ve looked for books online and didn’t find any. The best way is to listen to what Freddie Hubbard and other good soloists have done on recordings and transcribe or emulate it as closely as possible.
