Reconsider Baby > Soloing

Hello Folks,

We are at the solo section this week and will be learning as much of the original solo as I can decipher. Lowell's amazing playing is not easy to play note for note. But you can, as I have, figure out key points of his style and play "in the style of" by employing his type of bends, rakes, and rapid fire blues box riffs. Also his use of a two pickup out of phase tone helps a lot also. The point here is to learn to mimic the basic points of his style and create your own solos employing those points.

Send me some videos and good luck!

Enjoy,

Duke

Thanks Bruce, Barry and Steve H for your positive comments. 

Practice, practice practice, But when it comes to playing live, play from the heart - keep your head out of it as much as you can.

Cheers and Happy Easter

Hi Duke, here's a solo for you.  It uses some of the ideas from this lesson, plus some from before.  All set to the flat tire rhythm.

Thanks for the excellent lessons

Hi Peter, Sounds good. I hear the T-Bone and Lowell refrences in there. My advice to tighten up a bit would be to shorten your phrases with more pauses. Try not to always run them together. It will help your rhythmic sense and make the lines more defined. Keep it up! Duke

Here you are Duke. I changed the last pair of D notes into D9 (first one) and D13 (second one) chords for fun. I also got a new electric, and was able to combine both pickups to get Lowell Fulson's tone.

Hi Ian, Sounds good. Now try and work with the track so you can build up to the tempo of the song. Good start in it. Duke

Wow Steve, Very cool! You defintely have a grasp on that style for sure. Good speed on those fast riffs. i have lost quite a lot of speed over the past decade so I'm jealous! The import thing is the feeling and you got that very well. good singing also! Enjoyed this very much.It's great to come back from my tour and see you all working so hard on the lessons!  Duke
