Awesome! Can't wait to dig in!
God I LOVE this tune and your take on it Duke! Here's what I've been working on this week (excuse the interuptions from the kids!)
Been working on this one this week (and cursing myself for not working on it since I last worked on this back in 2014!!! Can it be that long ago???) Thanks Duke for an awesome lesson!
I aim to revisit a lesson series a week, starting with this gem of a song. Haven't finished series yet, but took a rough take at the halfway mark. I LOVE Charlie Christian - it's invaluable to me to have his work taught by a master. Thanks Duke!
Great stuff Duke. Sure you must Kenny Burrell's version on 'Blues - the common ground'. Looking forward to digging into this track, especially the slower/smokier approach, Tiny Grimes and Jimmy Smith's too
Nice. How you liking the Recording King? I picked one up a few weeks before lockdown and been messing around with some slide (got the time to now!)
Thanks Duke. Beautiful guitar (and hat : ) Always get a lot from you talking about the pioneers of swing. Stay safe
Revisiting this in honor of the Duke's birthday (the other Duke, the guy who write this beauty : ) Lovely lesson and great playing - literally had a 'WOW' moment at one of the lines you played! Using lockdown to dig deeper into SJ, especially the heavyweight numbers like this one : )
Beautiful - sounds like you got Dr John in for the vocal : ) Very cool!
Thats Duke on the vocal !!! Not Dr.John
Lovely Duke : ) Love Louis Jordan! The 6/9 chord reminded me of this 'Braggin', Dick Hymes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IarSdO49zsc
Great start to a great series! Thanks Duke, this is exactly what I need right now (aside from the great learning I could sit and stare at that beautiful guitar all day!!! ; )
Like you say there are a ton of awesome numbers based on these changes - I totally trust your taste! I'd be fascinated to dig deeper into how Charlie Christian, Tiny Grimes and Oscar Moore approached them. Also, any chance you could speak to how you tackle these changes when the key would be better suited to chords rooted off the A rather than E string (e.g. when playing in Eb, or F)?
Stay safe everyone
These are good questions and I'll try and address them soon Charlie. Duke
So hip! Love this one Duke : )
Here's my cut - as always it's an unpolished first cut just to get the flavor. Thanks Duke, as always, for all you share!
Thanks Duke! Enjoy Europe : )
Thanks Duke. Love that album as well! Can never get enough B.B. : )
Thanks Duke! Funnily enough I've been trying to study another Jimmie classic 'Ludella', but this one is one of my all-time favorites! Looking forward to diving deeper.
Wishing you a very happy new year - see you in the 20's : )
Thanks Duke. Great lesson! I'm on exactly the same page as you when it comes to taste - so always love hearing you share and learning from you.
I posted a video on the backing track, but may try another https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=cdUIzFH3kPQ
Merry Christmas to you sir! : )
PS I wanted to share this with you. Wrote and recorded a Christmas song. Sharing with you because I couldn't play a note of this if it wasn't for you! Hope you like it - very merry Christmas to you and yours : ) https://www.facebook.com/BigMamasDoor/videos/2555670014679152/
Hi Duke - thanks for this, love this tune (and really LOVE the duo version with you and Paul). As ever here's my first cut for any feedback : )
Very nice playing, Charlie!
Love it! Thanks Duke
