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
Beautiful!!! I’ve been waiting for this lesson ever since I saw you do a duo version with Paul : ) Thanks Duke!
You are very welcome!
Thanks Duke! Our band opens with 'Mean Old World' but it never, ever feels right!It's exactly as you say, simple but not easy!
Hey Bruce - thanks so much my friend (and sorry for the late 'thanks'! Only just seen your kind comment)
Very cool! Thanks Duke. Also, beautiful Telecaster : )
Lovely! Thanks Duke, always loved this tune. The versions I'm most familiar with are by Louis Armstrong and Tony Bennett's (also enjoy George Harrison's uke : )
Thanks as always Duke. I especially appreciated the sermon (your words : ) in one of these lessons, on the importance of LISTENING. That kind of insight is invaluable to me! For the last few years I've kept a box set of T-Bone's and another of Charlie Christian's in the kitchen (these days most my listening time is cooking for the kids and doing chores!)
Here's my take. I always give you the first cut. Partly because I don't have time for a second, mostly because it's an honest reflection of where I'm at.
Also, it turns out that today (May 28th) is T-Bone's birthday (so hoping some of the talent's in the air! ; )

Hi Charlie, You are sounding very good. You are getting the point of the T-Bone feel and phrasing very well. It's funny, T-Bone is simple and complex at the same time. Like many guitarists say about Chuck Berry, that it's easy stuff. Well it's not to play it correctly! You have a good feel for T-Bone so keep up the good work. Duke
Lovely stuff as always Duke!
I must (once again) say a HUGE thanks to you for sharing this hard-earned wisdom. It's done so much for me as a musician. The other night at a gig someone approached me after the show and said what a pleasure it was to hear T-Bone being done properly. All credit for any compliment like that goes right back to you and SJ! : )
Thanks Duke. T-Bone is my (the!) main man!
Thanks Bruce, lovely stuff yourself, really dig those chord things you’re doing.
The Falcon is a beautiful guitar. Haven’t bonded with her yet (almost feels too nice to play, which is my dumb excuse : )
Hey Duke - thanks (as always) for yet another awesome series of lessons! You're an awesome teacher and I can't thank you enough for the musical doors you continue to open for me!
Here's my take (complete with family audience in background, hence my sending first rough cut - believe me I was playing like Django while this was uploading ; )
Good Job Charlie, Enjoyed it and good to see you going for it on all 3 choruses! Duke
Thanks Duke and Brad - privilege to jam with you guys! Will work on a video : )
Thanks Duke! Love this tune, and know most the versions you mentioned (plus of course Charlie Christian). Don't think I've heard a vocal version, so going to have fun checking those out : )
: ) thanks for the Houston Person album tip, just arrived today. How about a lesson on Billy Butler's take of 'Hard Times'?
Thanks for another wonderful series of lessons! Here's my cut. Comes with some tiny embelishments and a few mistakes (but I know what they are and am working on them - if I waited for perfection before I posted then I'd never post! ; )
PS forgive the distorted tone - just my 175 thru a little Fender Champion 600, but right next to the mic when I cut this
