Watch the Adding Chromatics from 7th to 9th online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from Soul Jazz Survival Guide

Starting to sound more and more like jazz, innit? Before you get too excited about the notes, keep in mind that much of what we call soul jazz is about the rhythm and phrasing, and of course swing of the lines. So, don't just practice the notes, focus on matching the rhythmic feel of the players you love. Listen hard, is the feel ahead of the beat? Behind the beat? Swinging? If so, how much swing? It's all about how the notes sit in relation to the rhythm section. Experiment until you start to get the feel you want.
