The Fundamentals of Phrasing

To achieve success with phrasing ability, there's a mix of specific practice approaches that generally needs to be studied and eventually mastered.

Phrasing is a topic that will generally mystify many students when they explore soloing, composing and improvisation. Musical phrasing can, and often will, turn into something of an issue for most musicians during their early years of study. It is for this reason that phrasing can be thought of as an art-form, in and of, itself. The problem with formulating some kind of a generalized overall approach to phrasing is that it is a very unique thing to every player's ear! And, since what one person likes, is certainly not what every person likes, it can be rather difficult to choose one specific /common path for developing everyone's sense of phrasing ability. In the video, I zoom in on the guitar neck and explore several important elements that relate to better phrasing in general. A collection of original examples are used for demonstration. All examples include on-screen tab. Watch the video lesson below to learn more:
