Shake For Me > Hubert Sumlin's Nuances and Fills

Hello Folks,

This week we are finishing up Howlin' Wolf's "Shake For Me". I hope you all had fun working on the solo! For the final lesson we are going over some additional nuances and fills that Hubert plays in a few spots during the tune. There are lots of little subtleties through out the song so see if you can learn these and some of the other little things in there. This song is simple but challenging so let's see if you can get that fluid vibe that Hubert gets here.

Enjoy!

Duke

Hey Duke! Were you ever able to get the video to play? I can view both of them. It's not the greatest musical endeavor in the history of time, or even the last five minutes, but I'd be curious to hear what you think.

Thanks, Bruce

PS Did you notice the CD next to my head?  ;-)

Hey Duke. I'll try to upload it instead of the youtube link and see what happens. Hope this works! Thanks! Bruce

Hey Duke. Wow, this is all great stuff. I was really trying to capture that Hubert 7th to 6th thing in my last submission, but failed to achieve the strength of Hubert's playing. No real shame there! ;)  I just love his stuff; he's so quirky, but just so great. I also first heard him when I was around 15 in 1970. "Evil" was I think the first Howlin' Wolf track I truly loved. I bought that Chess Wolf/Muddy collection that came out around '70 and was blown away. All my schoolmates were listening to CSNY (and, well...I was too...) but I was also digging Wolf and Muddy and Charlie Parker and Billie Holliday. And a few years later, after moving to Boston, a really amazing guitar player name Duke Robillard. I have such great memories of those days, those beaded doorways at the Speakeasy. Anyway...thanks Duke. I'll keep working on this.
