This week we are working on the bridge for Honeysuckle Rose. This is a really fun one to play. Something about the 1-4-2-5. It is a very cool progression of to play over and sometimes refered to as the Flying Home bridge. I think the fact that you can play down for the 1 to 4 then up from the 2 to the 5 gives it a special feeling of almost call and response. That's often the way I choose to go with it. Descend for 4 bars then assend for 4 more bars. The last four bars can give a real release feel. I think you'll like the bridge I came up with as you learn it.
