Jazz Blues Guitar Lick in F#

Here's a jazz blues guitar lick in F# for you. Coming from a blues background I really have limited experience with jazz guitar so I approached this with a F# Minor pentatonic scale position and just used my ears to figure out what chromatic licks could spice up the good old minor pentatonic scale. You can download the guitar backing track at The track used was 97- F# Jazz Hack on the loose - used with permission. An appropriate title. My two favorite players in the jazz blues genre are Grant Green and Kenny Burrell. For some great licks by two legends make sure to check out there playing.
