Watch the Personal Style online guitar lesson by Andreas Oberg from Gypsy Jazz Duets
Andreas and Frank offer up a few ideas on how to develop your own style, rather than simply mimic the solos and licks of your heroes. Ideas discussed include pulling just the rhythmic or phrasing elements of a lick you like and using your own notes. Also, learning the ideas behind favorite riffs – the mechanics – will help make these ideas your own. Listening to instruments other than guitar is also key to keep ideas fresh.
