Watch the Breakdown 3b online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues

A classic keyboard double-stop in the bar position opens up this breakdown segment, followed by a short blues lick and a nice chord response. Chords and partials are used frequently throughout this solo, eliminating the need for a rhythm guitar or keyboard backup. Next up are chromatic 9th chord shifts to approach the V chord, then a solid major blues lick to outline the harmony, a similar move over the IV chord, and finally a slick slide lick, blues scale run, and double-stop.
