Watch the Step 3: Embellishments online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 1-2-3 Jazz Guitar
Step 3. is to add embellishments to your melody. Here I show you the 3 most important embellishments: bends, slides and vibrato. I demonstrate with the melody to Georgia on My Mind. 1st I play the first 2 bars straight. Then I add a bend up to the melody note. Next, I demonstrate a slide, sliding up to the melody note. Finally, I demonstrate vibrato. Try combining these 3 embellishment techniques to add spice to your melodies.
