Quick licks: advanced #17
Advanced lick one: jazz stretch chords

A turnaround progression in C featuring some luxurious closed voicings in the style of jazz master Johnny smith. These chords require a bit of a stretch so take your time and do one or two at a time before playing the full piece at the 50bpm tempo.

Advanced lick two: Paul Gilbert fun

Try this minor pentatonic/blues-scale burner made up of groups of five notes. Accent the beginning of each beat with the pick to give it definition and rhythmic bounce. Dial in a good amount of valve gain and perhaps a boost pedal in front for added bite as well... and again, watch those stretches!
