Before I create my next Quik-G lesson #3 on applying pentatonic minor I would like to share a legato lick in G melodic minor with you in groups of 6 with shifting positions. This one is great in a jazz context and can be used over a number of chords. Here are a few to get you started:
- Gm (7) - II degree in F for creating tension;
- Bbmaj7 +5 (love this chord) - III degree in G melodic minor. The easiest way to think of this chord is by playing a D major chord with a Bb in the bass;
- C7 9 (+11 / 13) - For instance in E minor blues progression on the C7 | B7 part;
- F#7 Alt (-9 / -10 / +11 / -13) - V degree in Bm;
- Em7 -5 - II in Dm with a stronger sounding 9.
Should be enough to get you started. ;)
BTW, you can always change the scale to G aelion or G dorian for instance and apply the same pattern.
