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! DukeTopics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
