In this lesson, you’re going to get a step-by-step breakdown of how to play the classic Herbie Hancock jazz standard, Watermelon Man, on guitar.
We’re going to use this as an opportunity to work out some arpeggio shapes up and down the fretboard, and some other cool tricks you can use to spice up your soloing.
Watermelon Man is a popular standard that’s often called at jam sessions, so it’s worthwhile getting to know it inside and out.
If you enjoy this Watermelon Man guitar lesson, please share it with your friends - it would mean the world to me!
Special thanks to my mentor Matt Warnock, who once showed me this innovative step-by-step approach to building up improvisation ideas over this tune. Check out his site at www.mattwarnockguitar.com.
I’d also like to thank Garry Petrisic who built the amazing archtop guitar featured in the video.
Thanks for watching. I appreciate you!
