Guitar Lesson: Blue Note Era - Soul Jazz Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio presents a guitar lesson in Fingerstyle Guitar... Q: Hello Andrew, I'd say that I am an intermediate to semi-advanced player and I've just discovered a guitarist named Kenny Burrell. I was wondering what he is playing over basic blues changes, because there seems to be jazzy sounds mixed in. He has a simple style, but he makes it swing and sound like jazz when he plays over say a 12-bar blues. I've read about this being called "The Blue Note" sound, however I am baffled by how players do this. Can you please make a lesson discussing what scales and musical concepts are involved with getting this Blue Note Sound. - Norman -- London, England A: The Blue Note sound is part of a very soulful group of recordings released in the late 1950's to mid- 1960's. And, two of the big names on guitar back then were definitely Kenny Burrell, as well as, a New York based guitarist named Grant Green. Now this style is part of what is commonly known of as Soul Jazz. The complete lesson article for this video is available on the Creative Guitar Studio website.
