Salute to Charlie Christian > Solo - A Section

Hello Folks,

This week we are learning the first two A sections to Barney Kessel's first chorus. Paul takes the tempo at a moderate speed so the only thing you need to watch out for is the timing of the phrases. At the end of the lesson Paul plays it with the metronome so you can see where each note belongs in time. Keep working hard on this and it will pay off.

It great guitar playing!

Enjoy,

Duke

Here's my go at this. I love that very simple opening statement, but it has to be phrased *just* right, and you sound great on it, Paul. Mine lacks the confidence that the phrase really requires, but I hope it's too not bad. Great lesson! Thanks a lot! Bruce

This lesson has been great. I've not really listened to enough Barney Kessel in the past, and so I have an entirely new appreciation for him. 

Mike, here's a correction on the transcription for the 2nd to the last measure. The 4th note (on the 8th fret) should be on the G string, not the B string.

Thanks (again) Paul. I love your enthusiasm for Barney - and I share it. 

ps I have 'Honey Rock' it's a great tune! (Got it on a Verve compilation called 'Tease! The Best of Burlesque')
