This week we are working on the 2nd chorus of Tiny Grimes solo on Blue Harlem. Before we start I have to say this song made a very deep impression on me when I heard it for the first time. This chorus is particularly interesting because it uses cool riffs employing the 6th in a way I've never quite heard used before. It it also has a nice phrase that uses a G minor 7 to C that is a very cool way to get to the 4 chord. All in all it's one of the most musical blues guitar solo ever recorded. Just full of nuance and subtleties.
Have fun learning it and post some videos.
