Phrasing and Pausing Lesson Video Description

In this video I share one of the lessons from inside my lead guitar improvisation course called Nail the Changes.

The course is about nailing the harmony when improvising over chord changes, but before even talking about chord tones and all the "right notes" I have a whole lesson module solely dedicated to phrasing.

Phrasing is what makes solos and improvisation sound musical regardless of what notes we play so it's very important to work on before applying specific scales to specific chords or anything like that.

There are three main phrasing exercises in the course—this is the first one.

Phrasing is mostly about reacting to what we played before, repeating similar rhythms, and being able to control our rhythmic structures on the fly.
