I'm Confessin'


Soloing Lesson 2

Hi Folks,

This week we are working on soloing over the bridge to I'm Confessin'. I demonstrate how to play with the double time groove. I also explain and demonstrate several different arpeggios, riffs and ideas on how to play over the 1 4 2 5 bridge. When you get you're comfortable with playing the bridge please send some videos and keep on spreading the word about Sonic Junction!

Enjoy, Duke

Hi Charlie, We're in the same boat as you as far as theory. It's great that this song is opening things up for you. Looking forward to,hearing you play I'm Confessin. Cheers, DukeĀ

Thanks as always Duke - I'm getting so much from this particular tune. It's opening the guitar up for me in a whole new way, i'm starting to 'see' it if that makes senses (I've always played off shapes - got zero theory/education going). The backing tracks really helpful - I promise I'm going to try a video by the weeks end (will spend time everyday palying along until it's flowing)

ps wish i could be at your Iridium shows - saw Les himself there about 10 years ago now (incredible to think I got that chance - the man knew Charlie Christian!)
