Watch the Whitty Blues online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Soul Jazz Licks You MUST Know
In "Whitty Blues" we have an idea inspired by guitarist Mark Whitfield. Here we have a blues idea while we keep a repetitive note on top. It is very funky sounding and effective in creating definition. It actually features one voice moving while the other voice remains on one note. This is very cool and once you get this down there are a lot of possibilities of ways you can start to utilize this in your playing.
