Whole Tone Chromatics Lick
Here is lick #3 from "50 Must Know Jazz Guitar Licks."
- The whole tone scale is partly used here, and it can be played over a dominant 7th chord. You may also hear a lick like this in a jazz guitar solo over a 7th chord.
- Some of the notes found in the whole tone scale serve as alterations to a dominant, and these notes include the 9th, #11th, and #5th.
- Check out George Benson and Pat Martino for more examples.
