Mike Stern Style Jazz Lines

Three Mike Stern Style Jazz Lines

Pat Martino LinesMike Stern is widely known as one of the most inventive and exciting improvisers in modern jazz/fusion guitar. Equally at home playing long fluid jazz lines or raw blues rock licks, Stern’s playing is instantly recognisable. The three sample lines below are designed to demonstrate a little of his approach to jazz improvisation.

These lines are taken from a new book just published by the Fundamental Changes music publishers and now available on Amazon. ‘100 Classic Jazz Licks for Guitar’ also includes many ‘in the style of’ lines by other legendary jazz guitarists, ranging from Django Reinhardt to Pat Metheny.
