Sweet Georgia Brown > Lesson 2

This week folks we work on the melody to Sweet Georgia Brown. I start off slow and gradually built up speed here. For those of you who aren't used to play on this many changes learning the melody correctly is an important step before moving on to soloing. So spend sometime getting that melody down and play along with the first lesson to get a feel for where the melody fits. Good luck and see you next week! Duke

Good job Steve! You get it tighter as you go. I like what you did when you got behind toward the end of the first chorus, you caught up for the last phrase. Too often people stop which is not the way to go. On stage, stopping is not good. A musician need to learn to keep going no matter what. Good job. Duke

Hi Duke

Here is my low tech overdub of the melody over the chords from lesson 1. The backing track is unfortunately louder than i would have liked but the Misses is after me to go to the Xmas craft fair so i won't have time to redo it right away.  

Again it isnt perfect. Seems evertime i try to record it i'm flubbing at least one line. Practice practice.

Next i'll look into soloing which should be very interesting for me.

Cheers

Steve
