Hi Joe, I may be out your way in August possible. go to www.dukerobillard.com and hit contact Duke to email me. Check back in a month or two. It's possible we can hook up for a lesson if my schedule permits. Check my itinerary on my site from triume to time to see where I'll be. Thanks, Duke

Hi Mario, The rhythm parts for these styles, considering what I am playing here on the lessons, would be either a simple Jimmy Reed rhythm or double the bass line. Another thing that works is using the 9th chord and sliding the top 3 strings up 2 frets to a E 6th chord and back. What I call a sliding 6th. that also will work well against the type of guitar I am playing on these lessons. Enjoy, Duke

Duke,

What sort of rhythm guitar patterns would you play that complement Brad's lines?

Thanks in advance,

Mario

Jack Myers indeed!   I never knew who he was, but alway loved Buddy Guy's A Man and the Blues ... especially One Room Country Shack.  Now I know the story.  Love it!  Thanks Brad.

I agree Duke, totally mind expanding the way he plays.
