Video: Fast Blues Solo
Check this out:
This is something I’ve been working on lately in the FretDojo Academy Club, my monthly online jazz standard learning group.
I’ve been looking in detail at the soloing approaches of Grant Green, the “hidden master” of guitar single line bebop soloing.
We’ve had a ball studying Green’s approaches, and the above video is an example of what my students are learning to do when it comes to single line improvisation over the blues form.
