Salute to Charlie Christian > Head - A Section

Hello Friends,

This weeks lesson is on the head. And a cool one it is! Lots of blue notes here and Paul shows you the best way to finger it. It's a swingin' thing and it even has the sharp 9 chord in it. (Called the Jimi Hendrix chord by Paul). This is going to be a really fun tune to improvise on. So let's get the head down so we can learn the first chorus of Barney's solo and then work on improvising on it.

More fun than a barrel of monkeys friends!

Enjoy,

Duke

 'Why? Because I can!' Love it Paul!

Such a great track - here's my cut - fluffed a little but i'm ok sharing it.

And yes, I'd love it if we looked at 'St James Infirmary' someday.

Very cool! This will be a very interesting challenge. Fortunately for me, you didn't pick Barney's "Gypsy In My Soul". I'm still trying to retrieve my jaw from the floor after watching him play this. Thanks Paul and Duke!
