I had someone (whom I believe is also on TH) recently send me a private message on Facebook that said, "Jason your intros to these are so dumb. I love it!"

My kids get involved with that part of the process and today's video includes one of their horses. But, we're targeting the 5th today with chromatic targeting along the way!

In today’s line we are using the pentatonic scale to target the root of the key area. Try this line in a few different keys and put it into context (i.e. playing something a little before and a little after).

Using a Diminished Arpeggio to Target the Root is our focus in today's Lick of the Day.

Once you hear it, you'll know. It's that diatonic lick that almost every great trumpet player plays (or some variation of it). Check it out!

Will you take the challenge? It's really simple: play today's lick in another key on one of your social media channels and tag me. Then I'll give you my book Breaking the Monotony for free as a thanks for participating!

Happy Halloween! No need to be scared of today's lick. It's great minor language:

I lost a game during family game night last week which meant that my daughter got to pick one of my Lick of the Day subjects. She was a unicorn during Halloween, but also loves Dizzy Gillespie's A Night In Tunisia. Thus:

Here's an easy tritone lick to play over dominant chords! I'm starting a small mini-series on licks that work over dominant chords. AND...have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Today's lick uses a short melodic idea as a tool to target the root. It's a fairly easy one to try and learn in as many keys as you can!

I just realized this morning that I forgot last week's Lick of the Day with releasing the Jazz Trumpet Practice Routine & Play Along. You can catch up on my YouTube channel, but here's today's where we're headed to the root!

I didn't realize I missed last week's post...sorry! But, today's Lick of the Day uses an altered pentatonic for a great blues sound:
