Watch the Phrase 1: B-C1 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues

The second segment begins where the first one left off, except that we are now changing up the feel and moving to other minor key centers. As we explore the use of both broken and conventional octaves within the context of improvised solos, it should be noted that this technique utilizes some of the guitar's percussive potential. This part of the lesson also covers shifting the octaves to other string sets, and addresses the importance of moving the licks we learn around the fingerboard.
