This week continues our wildly popular Lick of the Month Series. This month, we are taking things in a different direction. We all look toward transcriptions and recordings to get vocabulary for our own playing. This is because it’s a fantastic way to study the masters and let them guide us through what sounds great over chord progressions. But have you ever used a melody that you really like to develop some vocabulary? It may be something that we all overlook as a non-traditional place to get some really cool material for our solos. This week , we take a look at Charlie Parker’s Ornithology (I realize I misspoke in the episode and called it Anthropology…oops!) , borrow some of his genius, then slightly tweak it into something we can use in many situations. Enjoy the episode!
