I spend days figuring out this solo when I got into jazz. His playing and phrasing on this F blues is truely mind-blowing. This is by far one of the best jazz blues solos that I know and really a most if you want to stufy Jazz Guitar in a bebop or hardbop style.
You should also check out how great Herbie Hancock, Billy Cobham and Ron Carter play on this. Especially Hancocks solo is amazing and the trading with piano and guitar is also great and really illustrates how George Benson can also go outside and play more modern jazz licks.
Some of the things that I will cover in this video is
* How he mixes blues and bop phrases into one great language
* His favourite Arpeggio
* What makes his licks so great
* How he is mostly using very very simple things in the solo (he is just very good at it)
And then I am also going to show you one way of thinking about chords, scales and arpeggios that he uses here that is not that common but he makes it into some really great lines, it’s something he uses a lot in this solo.
