In this video I explain how to approach right hand technique to have a better ‘swing’ when playing jazz solos…obviously this works well for any style of music that has back beat (blues, rock and so on…). The idea is to PICK the note on the UPBEAT and SLUR the note on the DOWNBEAT, using hammer-on, pull-off or sliding to the next note. As I show in the video, this is not to be done constantly, but with taste, mixing it up to create a lot of different rhythms.
