Jeff Beck is an all-time Hall of Fame guitarist with a career spanning more than 40 years. His tone and phrasing are instantly recognizable and he is one of my favorites.
This backing track features some jazzy minor 7th, 6/9 and 9th chords that are fairly easy to play:
Some suggested scales for improvising:
For some inspiration check out this YouTube clip of Jeff Beck playing ‘Brush With The Blues’ on British TV back in 1999. It should be slightly obvious that this is the source from which I “nicked” my jam track. 🙂
This performance also features fellow GIT alum and instructor Jennifer Batten. She plays a support role on this tune but she is definitely another guitarist to check out, especially for you two-hand tapping fans.
