ive never played jazz in my life before, played death metal, but i love smooth jazz.
Any tips on how to get sounds like this? (not tone, but actual melody?)

1. learn theory
2. practice

I don't listen to jazz like that, but Grant Green is one of the smoothest bebop jazz guitarists I know.

he explains it in the video...you'll have to learn some theory...you'll have to know which scales go over which chords...I suggest you learn barre chords if you haven't and then take a look at the scale moods
