The Song Is Ended > Soloing Lesson 1

This week Paul is teaching the first 4 bars of my solo on "The Song is Ended." He also demonstrates an additional 4 bars that is based on what he would play on the same 4 bar section. So you get two versions of the same 4 bars to learn and choose from. We will continue on in the format in next weeks lesson.

Enjoy and I'll be back soon! Duke

Thanks for the feedback Duke on an earlier ques.  If I may ask, Paul is that a 350 model and what is the white thing hanging at the tail piece.  I have been interested in getting an archtop and have been looking at the Eastman models.  If I can manage to get one, what string guage would you recommend, I'm thinking of one with the neck pick up only.  I sure like the sound of the one your playing and wonder about strings, i.e. acousitc or elec, flat wounds, etc. No need to mention a brand if that's a no no. Also, Duke, I have just received my copy of Swingin Sessions CD from amazon and enjoy it.  The song, The Lonseome road has long been a favorite. My own preference is a little slower, jazzy feel but either way, a great song.  Maybe something for a future lesson.  Thanks, Chuck

Hey Duke,Paul,and Mike,

I'd like to take a stab at this weeks lesson. I've been sick since December with Candida Albicans. Lately I've had

the attention span of a gnat with advanced alzheimers so my studies have ground to a halt. I'm preparing for a 

Candida Cleanse... Anyway I love this weeks lesson...Thanks

Great stuff Paul.  This is the first time I had someone explain the idea of seeing the chords behind the solo being played, should make it easier to find the notes, I think.  Man I love that guitar.  Looking forward to next weeks lesson.

chuck-  visualizing the chords helps to identify pitch collection and leading your melody thru the changes.  keep trying it.
