Grand Slam > Solo - Second Chorus

Hello Folks,

This week's lesson is on the the first half of the second solo chorus of Grand Slam. Paul explains in depth the concept of the phrasing and notes within the chord shapes the riffs are based on.  Besides learning the solo you will get an idea of how to build phrases off of chord shapes. Which is similar to how I teach in my swing lessons.

Enjoy!

Duke

This one has really been fun to work on! It's surprising how tricky it is (for me anyway) to do the boogie-woogie part; hard to keep the pulse going completely steady. Just more practice needed. There are so many great riffs in this solo! Lots of good stuff to harvest. ;-) 

I was playing along with Charlie Christian's version, and I hear one bit slightly differently from Paul. I hear that last closing riff done in the 1st position, down the neck at the 1st fret over F. It feels a lot more natural to me down there, and I think it sounds a bit more like Charlie's version but of course that's so subjective. 

Thanks so much, Duke and Paul! Feedback, as always, would be most welcome.

Regards,

Bruce

Thanks Paul - I love the concept of 'gravity notes'. That one phrase has opened my mind and the guitar neck!
