San Ho Zay > Solo, Second Chorus

Hello Friends, This week we work on the third chorus of Say Ho Zay. This one starts out with a variation on the first chorus theme then gets a bit more complex as the stop at the end of the one change happens. Great example of Freddy's solo style here. Lots of twists and turns as he does short blasts of double time licks and works out the chorus ending on a augumented arpeggio.

Great stuff and fun to learn! Looking forward to seeing you all playing this one in some videos.

Enjoy! Duke

Thanks Duke

This song will be on the list for my band. Magic Sam version is also great and I'll steal the best feel from all versions - Ronnie Earl's too.

Cheers and hope you're feeling better.

Hi Bruce, Good hearing from you! Yeah, the Speakeasy was a special time and place. Just the right size for a blues show. I just watched your video and and the only advice I have for you is "Rock on Brother!" You sound really great and have that chorus down perfectly. Duke

Thank you, Duke! I appreciate that deeply. And thanks again for these videos. There is so much junk on YouTube from guys pretending to know how to play stuff -- it's just amazing to get this much GREAT info from such a great player.

Looking forward to going back through all the old videos and to all the new ones yet to come! Take care! 

Best,

Bruce

Thanks Larry, I appreciate it. We'll see if it's possible to get notation. I don't do that myself so it's up to Mike if can get that done. Thanks, Duke

Hi Duke,

Good lesson, thanks! 

One thing I'd find helpful is standard notation supplementing the tab. It's particularly helpful in getting the count right in some of these tricky phrases. (I'm also thinking of the Charlie Christian lessons.}

Aside from that, I really like your teaching style especially your feel for the groove. You really make these tunes swing!

Thanks again,

Larrry

I have to second that one, Larry. Of course standard notation by itself fails big-time for guitar, but a combination of tab and standard notation is really helpful to those who can already read. For me, it's easier to learn and remember the parts when I can read it, then listen to the performance for the phrasing.

Hey Duke! I'm a long-time fan of yours, back from the days at the Speakeasy in Cambridge with Roomful. My buddy Jerry Miller, a mighty fine guitar player in his own right, and I saw you play with Big Walter there, if I'm remembering correctly. I saw you guys many times at that wonderful old place. I remember being totally blown away by your work on a Guitar Slim tune one night. It felt like Eddie had come back to life.I did some gigs with Eddie's cousin, J.J. "Bad Boy" Jones, me. on piano. Very nice guy, was J.J. Sad when he passed. I was a student at Berklee in the 70s, and played jazz piano for many years, but recently have become guitar crazy.It's like a disease, man! You may get better, but you'll never get well. ;-)

So I was knocked out when I saw that you were giving lessons online! What an opportunity to learn directly from one of the heroes of my youth! Thanks for doing this! 

RE: my guitar playing. My technique is weak, but my spirit is strong. ;-) Would be most grateful for any critique or advice. Thanks!

Hi Bruce

Very nice. You make it seem effortless which is great. I am curious how you are recording. Are you using an interface?

Hey Steve. Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I hadn't seen your comment. 

Thanks for the kind words, man! It took me a few hours to get it seeming that effortless. ;-) I'm using the Apogee iMic hooked up to my MacBook. I made a quicktime video then uploaded it to sonic junction.
