Pat Martino jazz guitar solo transcription with tabs on sunny (4 bars) - Part 1

E-mail

This lesson is focused on 4 measures of Pat Martino's guitar improvisation on Sunny (Bobby Hebb), taken from the Umbria jazz live version with John Scofield (guitar), Joey DeFranscesco (Hammond) and Byron Landham (drums). You can listen to it at 1:16 in the original video below.

Before learning Pat Martino's line it is important to understand the function of the chords in the four first bars. As you can see, Gm7 | C7 | FM7 is a II-V-I progression in the key of F major and Bm7 | E7 | is a II | V sequence resolving to A minor. In that case you can even think Bm7 as Bm7b5.

Here is the entire original chord progression :

Am7 | Gm7 C7 | FM7 | Bm7(b5) E7 | 

Am7 | Gm7 C7 | FM7 | Bm7(b5) E7 | 

Am7 | Gm7 C7 | FM7 | Bb7 | 

Bm7b5 | E7#9 | Am7 | E7#9 |
