Watch the Phrase 2: D1 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues

Creative application remains the focus for this lesson segment, as we use yet another vamp, this time in the key of D minor, to change gears slightly and add some double-stops to the mix. Phrasing, a mainstay of great players like George Benson and others like him, is something that all guitarists should concentrate on, because you can get so much more value out of what you play. Remember that strength generates strength, and that the bottom line is always the sound!
