Route 66 > Chuck Berry / Rolling Stones

Hello Folks This weeks lesson will wrap up the Route 66 set with a twist. I demonstrate how you may play Route 66 in a Chuck Berry-ish R&R style. Same riff behind the vocal but with a different rhythm. Plus a few suggestions on CB rhythm guitar for it. I demonstrate a solo utilizing my favorite Chuck Berry lick to start and then give pointers on soloing in his style and give you several possible licks and techniques to use when soloing. This lesson in soloing is similar to the workshop I gave at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recently as part of a tribute to the man himself. Enjoy! Duke

Darry Ray, I can't get too loud or the track distorts so you may hear all sorts of noises from the guitar. Sorry about that! and Yes thirty days intro will come soon. Hi-Heel sneakers is next on the list--- as a boogaloo! Duke

The intro to "Thirty Days" is tha same as the intro to "Mabaline"... That makes me wonder if the story behind Chuck's "Thirty Days" is not really Part II of the "Mabaline" story. It makes sence if you imagine that Mabaline gets away, and our protaganist is forced fo resort to legal means of getteng her back home... Think about it...! Just a thought.

When you play the guitar like that, you get a lot of string clatter, but it's good not bad because it sounds sort of like snare drum percussion. Just an observation.
