This is a George Benson bluesy jazz lick from "Last train to Clarksville" a cover of the Monkees, an american rock band.
All notes of this lick are from the G mixoblues scale but we can also analyse these lines like this :
- Pickup measure : Starting with the root (G), G minor seventh arpeggio (G, Bb, D and F) respectively root, minor third, fifth and minor seventh.
- Bar 1 : Thirteenth (E) of G7, eleventh (C), fifth (G), minor third (Bb), ninth (A), root (G), minor seventh (F), fifth (D), thirtheen (E), fifth again and chromatic line (C, B, Bb).
- Bar 2 : By taking the last note of the bar 1 (D) and the 2 first notes of the bar 2 (Bb and G) you get a G descending minor triad (Bb, G, C).
