Howdy Friends,

This week is the final lesson on Robert JR Lockwood's Take a Little Walk With Me. This lesson we go over what I call the stop time verses which stay on the one for the first four bars and do the lick for the earlier verses but twice as often to break up the shorter vocal lines. I demonstrate a few ending licks also and there we have it!

Don't forget to send us videos of your progress and interpretation of the song.

Enjoy! Duke

Hey Duke -- I decided to go back through some of the older lessons to catch up with some of the techniques you've gone over in the past. I really enjoyed doing this song -- trying to play and sing together was more than I could manage through most of it -- heck, I can't even play and count! I sang "One and two is four, two and two is eight!" ;-)

Even though this is still a bit rough, I wanted to share it with you. Would love to get your feedback! Thanks!!

Bruce
