COLTRANE’S FAVORITE LICK

This lick is in the John Coltrane solo to “I Love You.”  Coltrane used this lick throughout his career.   Many of his disciples also picked up on the lick.   i work on it in 8 keys (the range shown for the first lick is 8va).     For variety, try playing it in retrograde (backwards) as shown in the second example below.
