LEVEL 3 FUNKY JAZZ-BLUES SOLO

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Blues -

This is a level 3 solo with a funky blues feel (used by lots of artists like George Ben­son, Ron­nie Jor­dan and Pat Martino), which also has shades of coun­try blues in its hy­brid pick­ing and use of 6ths. Each chord is ne­go­ti­ated by its own Mixoly­dian scale but th­ese are pep­pered with the use of b3 (and oc­ca­sional ma­jor 7ths and flat 5ths), which is an es­sen­tial stylis­tic tech­nique. i’ve gone for a more dou­ble-stop ap­proach here, which shows how the scales re­late to the un­der­ling chords, as well as in­form­ing rhythm ideas us­ing this level.
