Salute to Charlie Christian > Chords

Hello Folks,

This week Paul Kolesnikow gives us a month of swinging lessons on Barney Kessel's Salute to Charlie Christian. And indeed it is swinging tune with a chord progression from the Eddy Durham/ Edgar Battle classic Topsy. Paul starts off the lesson with the rhythm and shows a few extra chords to lead up to the IV chord.

It's a really fun song to play so get the changes and rhythm down now!

Enjoy,

Duke

Hi Duke and Paul

I tend to add a jump beat on the Bbm and F, away from the 4 4. Is this a problem?

Cheers

Steve

Thank you Steve......Duke

Sounds good Charlie but the sound seems to be cutting out on your system from time to time. Duke

Wow , really nice changes . Can't wait for the head . Thanks Paul .Good stuff .

 Here's my cut - I don't always feel I have the fat E string under control, especially around the Gb and F. But listening back it doesn't sound too bad...

This is a great tune and a great lesson. Thanks Paul!

Hi Charlie --- sounds really good.  FYI that the cutting in / out is usually the "noise reduction" on your computer microphone.  You can turn it off via the settings menu.

Wow, as Peter said, that is indeed a stretch! Great tune and sweet arrangement, Paul!

Duke, I was absolutely delighted to read on Facebook that all went well with your operation. Continuing to send good vibes your way, hope to hear you playing that axe again soon!

I assume you don't mind a little reharmonization on my part on the bridge. Can't help myself, even if I could be taking the time to relax my hand before that next Bbm!! ;-)

Love that progression and the chord voicings --- it's a keeper.  I may try and write a song or two around it.

Great lesson and great advice on challenging ourselves. Thanks Paul - I was watching Barney Kessel talk the other day and he was saying to always try and hum, sing or whistle what you wanted to hear, which you always do in your lessons (so great minds clearly think alike!)

Ps lovely guitar. Can I ask what's the towel for? Guessing it has something to do with playing under hot lights?? Played a show last night I was so soaked after it was like I'd had a shower!!

Hi Peter, Yes it is Peter but the more you stretch, the more you are able to. Duke

Owww!  That Bbm is quite a stretch :-)
