Chitlins Con Carne > Lesson 3

Greeting guitar friends, this week we work on soloing on Chitlins Con Carne. My approach to this lesson is to show you many different techniques like double stops, double time funky lines and riffs that are indicative of the soul jazz guitar idiom. Being the tune is primarily based on the minor pentatonic scale, I prefer to teach different ways to make your playing on that scale to sound jazzy by technical ideas and timing. I basically show my bag of tricks for this style. There are lots of ideas here to employ in your arsenal so dig in and have a ball. Good luck and send us some videos! Thanks, Duke

Thanks Duke,

  Awesome lesson. Adding some new colors to my blues.  Love the combination of the root two string 1 5 chords plus the moving 6 9 chords.

  I've always used a lot of bending in my solos, so this lesson has introduced my to a more jazzier, melodic approach if you will.

Thanks,

Steve

Cool stuff.  I like the three level slurs and the I V licks.
