This week we are still working with the song, 'Baby What You Want Me To Do', by Jimmy Reed. The first week we covered the left hand and the second week, the right hand accompaniment.
In this 3rd lesson, we will work on 3 different left hand baseline variations. This lesson also dabs with several different fingering exercises or patterns if you will. You will learn alternate fingering for the left hand blues patterns taught to you in the two past lessons.
Another very important point in this lesson is where we start to deal with arm movement; from elbow to fingers.
Lastly, for those of you guys that are moving at a faster pace, you guys can concentrate on a few different walk ups to the 1, 4, 5 chords used in the this song. I play a few for you in this lesson. If you'd like to get creative and show me what you're thinking or coming up with (only after your mastered left have and right hand from lessons 1 & 2) feel free to post your video.
Remember to practice both hands. Study lessons 1 & 2. If you have any questions or comments, please send them to me and I'll be happy to help you out!
Thank you very much and I'll see you next week.
Bonne musique...et ils sont partis!!!
