Glide On > Solo - Lesson 2

Hi Folks,

This week we are doing another chorus of solo for Glide On. This lesson includes more Bill Jennings licks. Starting with a device he uses often with the 3rd to the high Bb then the 4 to the root the flat 5 up to the 5 and root. Simple but effective sounding. We also play a diminished run four and end up with a cool boppish lick to resolve the solo from the 2 minor 7 then flat 2 substituting for the 5 to end the chorus.

Lots of fun stuff here then next week we go on with one more chorus of soloing which has a great double timed lick I use often.

Enjoy!

Duke

I love how the automated page turning!  Really very nice. I wish you could turn it off, however, when going through the entire lesson. I wanted to reference the other page and it kept change it back, so I made a PDF for that part.

Great lesson, Duke! Very cool solo, and wonderful rhythmical ideas. Thanks so much for it!

Hi Duke, Here is my first try at it. My camera audio sounded awful so I just did an audio track.

Hey Duke

Forgot the lights. Thanks again for this lesson. There is a lot here to work with.

Looking forward to the next lesson but that by no means I have learned all there is to learn from this one.  

Cheers

Steve

Hi Mike, the page turning works fine, but I don't it useful.  Its cool, but for me it gets in the way.

I like to listen to Duke and then use the Tab/Sheet music to remind myself of what he played.  I don't read the sheet music while listening to Duke.

I like to have the whole score visible at once so I can scan it while I practice.

For me, the most important thing is to have the licks labelled with the chords, and aligned with the beats.  Tab tells me where to put my fingers, the score tells me how it fits with the rhythm, and listening to Duke tells me how it should sound.

But it is good the SJ is trying new things :-D

Hi All --- thanks for the feedback on the new sheet music.  For this lesson --- we're specifically interested in how the automated page turning worked for people on Duke's run-through.  Thanks.

Hi Mike,

The automated page turning worked fine (Mac running Safari). 

To echo Peter's comments, It's not super valuable to me. I would rather have a window within the window for the tab which could be continuously scrolled. That way I can work on stuff between page boundaries. 
 
As always, thanks for a great site.
 
Marty
