Wes Montgomery was an american guitar jazz player, considered as one of the greatest jazz guitarist of all time.
In this jazz guitar lesson we will see how Wes Montgomery played a guitar lick using notes from the G phrygian mode (minor type scale) over a Bb dominant seventh chord. This lick is a short part of the "West coast blues" guitar solo improvisation . Once you have learned this jazz line it's important to play it in different keys and to make it evolve by adding notes and fret-hand techniques.
In this lick Wes Montgomery plays notes from the G phrygian mode, the G phrygian mode is built with the following notes : G-Ab-Bb-C-D-Eb-F respectively 1-b2-b3-4-5-b6-b7.
The phrygian mode is a minor type scale because of its minor third. The main characteristic of this mode is the presence of a minor second (b2). It is usually played over minor chords.
This mode has the same notes as the Bb mixolydian scale : Bb-C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab respectively 1-2-3-4-5-6-b7.
In this harmonic context it's better to consider this jazz line as the mixolydian mode starting on the sixth (G) but it's a good opportunity to take a look at the phrygian scale.
