Great idea with the licks sub-forum! I think I'll be posing here a great deal because writing these things out and explaining them forces me to understand them better.


A nice Jimmy Rosenberg Micro lick over the B section. Works great over all rhythm changes based songs and others with a similar B section (such as Stomping at Decca)


One thing about the Dutch style is at faster tempos that they like to preserve the DUDUDUDU 8th note pattern whenever possible (with the exception of switching strings -- always D), even when there are three notes on a string. This is done via hammer ons and pull offs. Notice the triplet in the first measure, and beginning of the second measure.

I think that this is the key to pulling off a lot of those licks with speed and good timing.

For visual aid, Jimmy does this lick twice (in various forms) in the video here:
