Combining blues sounds with jazz melodies is a
common practice by great players. Today's
dominant 7th lick is just that. For A
it begins with a classic blues riff followed
by an Em7 and D major arpeggio shapes
resolving to the 3rd (C#). Play the first note
(A) as a pickup. To add a cool jazz
"decoration," play a quick 32nd note figure by
adding a D note after the second high E. Pick
the high E and pull-off the D and C notes. Use
the Riff loop & tempo control to slow the tab
to your skill level.
