Be Honest Guitar Lesson

This is a song that really stretches the left hand moreso than the right; for those not familiar with Jazz voicings, there are a couple of tasty surprises in this one! It’s not inaccessible by any stretch, but will engage both hands if you haven’t done a lot of jazz guitar in the past!

As far as the picking hand goes, this is a fairly conventional set of picking patterns that get jumbled up with some syncopations. They take some work to master, but sounds quite inviting when you get them.

This lesson is in progress; still working on a tab, but there is a chord chart link below. I hope to also create a second lesson on the picking and a performance of the song that ties together some of the live goodies, but time will tell if my release schedule allows it.
