Mike Stern Lick #2

Monday, September 3, 2012

Here's another head turning Mike Stern lick from "Ha Ha Hotel". You'll notice that most of the notes played fit the E mixolydian mode with the b3rd added for bluesy effect, but there are a couple of cool fusion moments here. Notice the chromatic move in the first bar that targets the 4th, which is soon followed by a short pedal tone lick that features the major 7th. Like Stern's use of the E harmonic minor scale in last month's lick, this major 7th creates a dramatic tension against the underlying E13 chord. It is quickly resolved however, when Mike finishes the lick by playing E dorian. This fits nicely with the underlying E13 chord as it contains the same notes as E mixolydian, except the 3rd is flattened. Do you want a song or solo transcribed / tabbed out for you?
