Watch the Mood Swings online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary

Mood Swings - Lick 31 is a video guitar lesson presented by James Hogan and is sourced from 50 Jazz Rock Licks You MUST Know.


This lick is taken from Mike Stern's great tune "Mood Swings" from his debut album "Upside Downside" which also featured Jaco Pastorious on bass, Mitchell Forman on keys, Bob Berg on tenor sax and Steve Jordan on drums. Dream line-up? I submit yes.

This lick reminds me of why I love Stern's playing so much. It features a couple of really nice "Stern" bends and some minor lines fused with some chromaticism and a great rock guitar sound. Love it!"
