Easy bebop lick over a ii V7 I - Jazz lick 1

Here is a sound sample on trumpet:

How to memorize in 12 keys:

This lick is really easy to learn in 12 keys. Whatever note you start on is the bebop scale you will play. Know that the C bebop scale is a 5th above F Major . For example, if you have a ii V7 I in the key of G Major, what bebop scale would you play? The answer is the D bebop scale because D is a 5th above G.

You start on the tonic, go up to the 3rd, then do the bebop scale down to the 3rd again. When you hit the 3rd, just do a diminished arpeggio up to the b9 and then finish the bebop scale down landing on the 3rd of the I chord.
