Grand Slam > Solo - First Chorus

Hello Folks,

This week Paul teaches the entire first Charlie Christian solo chorus of Grand Slam. It's a perfect music chorus and not extremely difficult to execute but the timing IS a bit more difficult. Charlie starts many phrases on beat 3 which really gives each line a different perspective. It creates a unique kind of swing and urgency and a cool sound that is partially the essence of Charlie's style.

Have fun and Enjoy!

Duke

Hello Paul and Duke --

I started working on this solo last week, though it turns out to be easier than I thought (now that I've watched this lesson) because I was trying to avoid using the open string. I thought that would be cheating somehow. ;-) So I'm very pleased to see it, because it sure is a whole lot easier to play this way! I love playing this on my old Epi. I just got some work done on it and it's got 12s on it now, so it sounds great and sure feels "authentic" when I try to do a bend!  

I'm really trying to stay relaxed, and I think it's helping. I've been getting that reinforced from Chris' lessons too! How's it sound? I'm feeling much more confident and "certain" (hard to think of exactly the right word) about what it is I'm trying to play. This is such a great tune to work on. Thanks for it!

Bruce
