Blues After Hours > Lesson 5

In this series of lessons we are going to take a close look at Pee Wee Crayton's classic 1948 Blues guitar hit, "Blues Ater Hours." In the fifth lesson we are going to look at various approaches to creating your own solo chorus.

The next riff continues on the theme

and then a variation of a familiar riff from before

$4.5 $3.3 5 5^ 3 $4.5 $3.5.$2.5 $3.3.$2.3 $3.h5p3 $4.5 |

The fingering and chord form for the sliding 6ths is

Your very Welcome Todd, just being able to play simple and slow when apropriate I believe is important. I've had students that found it impossible to play slow and thoughtful. Fast is good when it fits the song but being able to lay back and make a simple statement is just as important.

Okay, Now it's working.

Another great lesson. Duke, I really appreciate learning how you thiink about soloing. Taking into consideration when the song was recorded and your thoughts of not soloing too long or straying too far from Pee Wee Crayton's style.

Hi Duke .. I'm really enjoying this lesson.  Thank you.  The lead lines are beautiful.  I especially like the last couple riffs where you play a lead and then hit the chord.  Ahh.  Love it!!
