I'm Confessin'


2nd A Section Melody

Hello Friends, On this our 3 leeson for "Confessin" we are working on the second A section. It is similar to the first A but we have some twists and of course the seconding ending leading to the bridge. There a few embelishments I use in this section that are right from the style of Les Paul. One is sliding down the high E string from C to G with only picking the first note and sliding over each fret to make each note ring out. The other is play a sharpe 11 chord and sliding up the fretboard every two frets or whole step 4 times until we end with a 6-9 G chord at the end on the 11th fret! Fun stuff.

Enjoy, Duke
