In this lesson, I explain the guitar style of Freddie Green, who was the guitar player in the Count Basie Big Band. For any aspiring jazz musician, this is a must style to know how to do.

As I mention in the video, you may recognize this popular jazz standard. NOTE: Please refer to the tab below for the chords. Okay, when it comes to voice leading, the main idea is to swiftly move through the chord changes without many large intervallic jumps from chord to chord.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how I approach tightening up my intonation while bending. It's simple! You start from a note and end with another note.

Remember, the key with these exercises is to take as long as you need to match the pitch you bend up to. The point is to spend time perfecting your sense of pitch from one semi-tone or tone to the next.  The pitch is the most important part here. Play it slow then speed it up as you like!
