Honeysuckle > Main Body

Greetings! In this second lesson for my tune, Honeysuckle I show you how to play the main body of the tune by slowing it down into its different parts. Pay close attention to the rhythm and tempo of the tune and how the bass line is played. Start with learning the bass and then slowly over time add the melody. Before long you will be playing it easily. Enjoy!

@JD...you get a nice tone from the archtop and you are playing a nice easy tempo with good rhythm.  I would only suggest that you listen to the runs and small embellishments and add those into your playing.  Thanks for posting and I am looking forward to hearing you sing!

Thanks Corey :-) with the New vidéo upload i do it Step by Step. No worry i'll make a whole version soon, I'm on the singing now but it's hard to sing the flatted third on a C chord as you do... And the end in falsetto is terrible for my neighborhood ;-)

Hello Corey,

this my version. I'm a little bit tense because i was focused on the rag bass with the thumb but i think it's getting better, in a few day or week i may have integrated the pattern and be more laidback.

In a way it's like the "Ding a ding" that jazz drummer play on their ride cymbal ("cha ba da" rythm en français). The  pattern is :Thumb on all the beat (with emphasis on the 2nd and 4th time) and the off beat of the 2nd and 4the time is played with the bass (thumb). it's sound like : And one two and three four and... the "and" are the bass played with the thumb in the offbeat : the rag bass of the ragtime :p Hope i'm clear ;) !!

Grazzie amici ! It's a 1954 L-50. I don't let the pickguard, i like it like that for now but when i ad a pickup i'll put it again. Strings are light nickel (newtone jazz) not really for picking but very smooth.
