18 Bebop Licks by Pat Martino

by | Jazz Improvisation, Pat Martino

If you’ve been keeping up with my videos, you’ve probably watched some of my 18 Bebop Licks lessons. So far I’ve featured and analyzed 18 licks by Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery and Grant Green. And by popular request, this is my 4th lesson in the series, featuring 18 licks by the late great Pat Martino!

I have to confess that transcribing and analyzing Pat’s amazing lines has taken me longer than doing so for the previous artists. This is due to the fact that a great majority of his solos have a double time feel (lots of busy 16th note based measures), as well as some very sophisticated twists and turns. Among the most prominent concept featured in most of his phrases is the use of 2 and 3 note enclosures. As a matter of fact, you’ll find that the analysis of Pat’s “18  Licks” doubles as a masterclass in the use of enclosures!

If you’re a Pat Martino fan, I don’t think you’ll find another breakdown demonstrating the essential key components of his lines as detailed as this one! Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn and incorporate into your playing, the main concepts used by one of the most influential players in jazz guitar history.
