Watch the Set 6: Phrase A1 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues

This first phrase of the set, again laid over a funky backdrop, is the essence of question and answer phrasing, also referred to as call and response. It opens with a pull-off and a simple, snappy move off the C minor pentatonic scale in the basic bar position. This is followed by a classic, sliding double-stop one position higher on the fingerboard. After the opening theme is repeated, the lick moves to a lower position and register for the major blues answer.
