102 Classic Minor Licks

At some stage if we are serious about our development as improvisors it is highly advisable to practice licks and lines that start on all the different degrees of the Minor scales.

This will corner us to play notes that we may not usually choose, which  will help us grow as improvisors and expand our possibilities, musical horizons and vocabulary.

The latest resource from Jazzduets  102 Classic Minor licks  can be thought of as an encyclopaedia of information on the minor, as it references some of the greatest melodies ever written.

Excellent E-book. This man is a musical genius

I am extremely happy with this excellent book full of hundreds of different licks in every keyAnd not on the every key, but also starting from each different chord number. I highly recommend everyone check this book out. You can’t go wrong as it is extremely underpriced and you get so much high quality phrases to add to your improvisational vocabulary. I would definitely buy again. Five stars all day long



Hi Sean ! Thanks for such a kind review! Best , Jazz Duets

excellent material as usual

Very inspirational material, loads of stuff to practice in any way you want (I’m ear oriented so I tend to sing the licks first then figure them out on the instrument)

Lots to work on here

There’s lots to work on here but it’s designed to give usable material right from the starts so I’m able to incorporate ideas into my soloing already. That provides a great incentive to stick at it. Over time the impact should be transformative.



Hi Glynis. Thanks for the review! Best, Jazz Duets.

Great fun to play along and try to copy the style!

I can feel my sight-reading improving as I play thru' these lively little tunes. I try to copy the laid back swingy style which is fun for a classical player!

Well thought out and presented material

Really like how this is laid out, especially the analysis of each lick which gives them a lot of context as opposed to just a series of notes. This is very easy to assimilate into your improvisations quickly. Really enjoying it.
