Watch the I Chord: G2 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues Assembly Lines

This lesson segment is another four-bar phrase that works effectively for the C7 chord, either by itself or within the context of a standard 12-bar blues progression. The front end is a lick that begins with a pickup based in a country feel, then classic keyboard-oriented double-stops and staccato eighth note figures out of the bar position. The second half features some jazzy superimposition, with G minor thinking over the C7 chord, something that's always an option if you wish to get more melodic.
