Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

This idea show­cases a gypsy jazz sta­ple, out­lin­ing arpeg­gios with one up­stroke fol­lowed by one un­bro­ken although stag­gered down­stroke that crosses three strings - there­fore a to­tal of four notes with two moves. While th­ese ideas are not too trick y by them­selves, the real skill here is main­tain­ing ac­cu­racy, clar­ity and good time through­out the en­tire se­quence, so en­sure you aim to main­tain con­cen­tra­tion and try to re­sist the temp­ta­tion to rush the tempo. Ide­ally, we’re af­ter an un­bro­ken de­liv­ery of 16th-notes (four notes per click) through­out.
