My friend, Eric Hagstrom was over at the house the other day, and gave my 11 year old, Louis a beginning brush technique lesson.

Using "Girl From Ipanema," I demonstrate a fun way to practice phrasing behind, ahead of and directly on the beat.
Move from 16th notes to triplets seamlessly as you practice this bluesy lick! It works over a blues, or any major ii V I and I think you'll have lots of fun with it!
