Bill Evans Jazz Lick Lesson and Video

Here’s a free Bill Evans lick lesson and tutorial video.

Bill was a harmonic genius and one of the truly great jazz musicians.

This Bill Evans lick is just so beautiful sounding I had to share it with you all!

(After you check out this lick you will want to check out this additional Bill Evans chords lesson and this Bill Evans jazz chords lesson)

Make sure you scroll down for the notation of the lick and video. I added some additional tips and a lesson to help you learn.

    I want you to know that I think what you are doing here is very important. I live on Maui where there are not a lot of teachers especially of this kind of thing. I don’t always leave comments, but I am growing thanks to you. It is great to be off the plateau I had reached. Keep up this great work. You are making a difference.
