In this “Playing Over the Bar Line” jazz guitar lesson, acclaimed guitarist Larry Koonse discusses and demonstrates his approach to phrasing across the bar. Larry shows you specific exercises to help you develop this concept in both 4/4 and odd meters. If you want to step beyond your phrasing limitations and play over the bar line regardless of the time signature, this lesson is for you. NOTE: There is a small PDF bundled with the download version of this video (not the $8.99 streaming version) which includes some handwritten materials (by Larry) that support these concepts.
