An Ascending Jazz Line

How about a chromatic ascending lick to nicely balance off your descending lick?

The line below is in the key of Gb, and works well on a V7 - I change, in this case Ab7 - Gbmaj7. Notice that it ends on a Bb, which is the 3rd of Gb, and the 9th of Ab7.

And, here is the score, with the guitar tab (click to enlarge):

This line also works well on any of the dominant chords of the jazz blues progression, although you may need to modify the last note to fit the next chord.
