John Scofield guitar solo transcription with tabs | Over big top # 1
This is a John Scofield guitar line from the tune "Over big top" (live version) from "En route". This jazz fusion altered lick starts with notes (the first eleven notes) from the Ab diminished scale also called "whole-tone half- tone scale" and continues with notes from the Ab inverted diminished scale also called "Half-tone whole tone scale". Then the lick is ending with notes from the Ab minor pentatonic scale (last nine notes).
Remember that the Ab dimished scale (also called "eight tone scale") is constructed by alternating whole-step and half-step intervals. Here is the Ab dimished scale (Ab-Bb-B-Db-D-E-F-G-Ab). The Ab inverted diminished scale is made by alternating half-step and whole-step intervals. Here is the Ab inverted diminished scale (Ab-A-B-C-D-Eb-F-Gb)
The backing track in the video on the right is a little bit slower than the original.
All the fingerings are suggested. Once you have learnt these jazz lines you have to try to change notes, vary the fingering, add fretting-hand effects (Hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends, slides, vibratos) and find some new musical ideas. Remember, this lick is simply a working basis, you need to understand and develop these jazz lines.
