Watch the >> Full View online guitar lesson by Larry Carlton from 335 Improv

In this video we'll take many of the techniques and approaches that we've been discussing in this section and apply them over the rhythm track.



You'll hear lines that lead the changes, repeated and imitated phrases, and a few examples of melodic minor when the rhythm part uses that half-step slide into the IV chord (see the previous clip for details). You'll also catch chromatic phrases, big slides, pedal tones, and a few different ways to incorporate chromatics and dynamics.



Use the notation and follow me through this blues improvisation. Then grab your guitar, and play over the rhythm track to explore and apply the principles yourself. Have fun on this one!
