Getting to the point where your solos start to sound like Jazz is a huge milestone in your journey. In many ways, phrasing is the one thing that really matters when it comes to getting something to sound like Jazz, and the feeling of playing and locking in with the rhythm section in your solo is really fantastic.
This lesson collection contains 6 lessons that will help you develop your phrasing. The best way to learn phrasing is by playing etudes and solos, so most of these are based around short, easy to play, solos on simpler pieces, and in a medium tempo. This makes it more achievable to work on through the exercises and feel that you are getting somewhere.
The exercises and solos will help boost your
- Bebop phrasing and dynamics
- Swing-feel and adding Blues phrasing to Jazz
- Make your solos rhythmically more interesting
In my journey of learning Jazz guitar, I found that phrasing was one of the things that I really had to figure out for myself, so I took a lot of the things that I learned and made them into material that for the most part is included in this collection.
Be aware that the lesson download is a lot of fairly big files so download it to your PC and remember to be a little patient!
