Great lesson...nice tele
Nice chops Ben,cool one!!
Hey Ben, really sweet funky vibe to this one, and I love the discipline of using different scales to keep things interesting for a repetitive chrd sequence like that - cool!
Hello Layzer and Muris!
@Layzer: Thanks for the telecaster-its not actually mine unfortunately , i borrowed it from my sister for this lesson!
Thanks for the kind comment Muris!
Thanks for the kind comment. I didnt go very 'outside' on this one, but will be going out the box on the sequel!
Thanks for the scale diagrams too!
Wow Ben, That was really cool, I am really gonna learn this one. Keep up the good work and make more vids. ^^ - cheers
Cool stuff, great lesson, awesome solo!
Your lessons are great, I checked them all. They cover a side of the instrument which I miss a lot. So I'm going to practice them. You have a rare maturity.
In this one, there is a Greg Howe feel that tease me even more. You like him? You have smooth phrasings.
Add a few tap notes and more distortion and you have a pure tribute-lesson ready to go.
But this one is already great anyway, I assume you have your own style. Just a thought coming out...
Hey Roo-Thanks for the comment, i really appreciate that!
I love Greg Howe's later stuff (his fusion based material), he has unbelievable technique and taste-a very rare thing indeed-His cover of the jazz standard 'Giant Steps' is pure class.
Thats a great suggestion for the future-but first i need to brush up on my tapping! Definately do-able though.
Congratulations on your first lesson, you have an awesome 'liquid' legato style-reminded me of Brett Garsed, but with your own individual touch-congrats!
Great Stuff, If only I could get that type of tone out of my amp
Nice Playing- John
I agree with Roo - there is an impressive maturity in your playing. Greg Howe is also one of my absolute favorite guitarists - I love everything I have hread so far from him!
The background music is funny sounds like the 70's.I'm not around anybody that plays in this style and i have no expercience on stuff like this.I am going to try it though im so used to metal.I do believe that any serious musician should learn any style out there to help them find there own style so i will be trying this.Thanks for the lesson.
Wow definitely hearing the Robben Forb vibe in here. Great lesson Ben been waiting on my toes for this one...
Just what I was looking for.
I love your lessons. The jazz one was fantastic and so is this one.
Keep them coming!!!
Thanks for the comments!
@Kris-Thanks Kris for the comment! Greg Howe is an awesome guitarist, so perhaps a lesson from him in the future? I'' have to work on mt tapping though!!
@Shredmandan: Yep your right on the money there, trying different styles really makes you progress as a player. AND makes you more employable
@Anastastio-Hello! Yep i tried to go for a Robben Ford vibe, being one of my favourite blues/jazz guitarists so hopefully that came through!
@Liverust: Thankyou for your comment! Ive got another traditional jazz one on the way so hopefully that will suit your needs!
Nice playing and sound Ben! Sounds cool + funky. Tasty 'colouring' in there too. Robben Ford? ya can't go wrong .
p.s. I thought Jazzers didn't bend? .
Thanks for the comments! As a fusioneer its ok to bend isnt it?!
Yep tried to put some Robben Ford vibe in there, but trying to find his elusive tone is the big part of the problem!
Thats so damn funky Ben!
that's what i'm looking for...please do MORE!!!
Yep, I hear a Robin Ford in the Making.
Do some more of this.
nice lesson Ben!!!!!
nice lix great Ben!
haha that sounds great, even though im not a funk fan this sounds great, good job
Great lesson Ben. Really funky.
Really nice solo, Ben, well done !
