PAT MARTINO Idiomatic Jazz Lines Generator

Recommended Posts

This is for generating some jazz licks in the style of the LINEAR EXPRESSIONS, by jazz guitarist PAT MARTINO.

The rhythm slots of the example contain the same 16th value, but it can be worked out as Rhythmic Cells. I was testing straight 16th lines.
