Grant Green – How to Bridge Bebop and Blues

Grant Green is the master of mixing Bebop with Blues and playing Swinging rhythms. This video is taking three licks from a solo as an example of the Grant Green Guitar Style. His unigue combination of great rhythms, bebop chromaticism and bluesy simplicity has inspired jazz guitarists for decades.

The three phrases I go over highlight the mix of blues and bebop, the great cross-rhythms and of course some of his other swinging rhythmical ideas. I talk about them and also try to give some suggestions on how to practice playing like this.
