Easy rhythm change bebop Jazz lick
Here is an easy to learn bebop Jazz lick that I prefer to use over rhythm changes. Of course you can use this lick over any dominant chord starting on the tonic, but this is just my personal preference.
I apologize for the really bad photo of the lick, my scanner went out on me, actually it was my laptop, but both are crap anyway.
Here is a sound sample played on trumpet:
How to memorize this bebop lick in 12 keys:
First off, know that you’ll be starting on the tonic. Simply do a bebop standard lick starting on the tonic then going down a minor 3rd and doing the exact same thing over again. After this, do an advanced enclosure to the 3rd of the key, then simply do a diminished (stacked minor 3rds) landing on a chord tone of the next given chord.
That’s really all there is to this Jazz lick. Hope you enjoy!
