Watch the Set 5: Phrase A1 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues

Volume II of our Jazzed Blues series is inspired by and reminiscent of vintage Kenny Burrell, from his early 70s period. This first of a group of four licks in C minor has a decidedly "nappy" sound, and is played for the most part down near the nut. It opens with a couple of quick hammer-on slurs, followed by a slick pull-off and slide shift into the first position, continuing into the lower, bass register. Blues attitude throughout, and laid over a funky vamp.
