Haven't been around for a while Corey but thought I'd work on his tune last week and here is where I'm at so far. A few missing bass notes and things - would welcome your feedback as always. Thabks, Doc.
Your playing is nice and relaxed here. It seems like you have a good handle on the beginning of three melody line but you sound unsure as to how to resolve it at the end. Go back and listen more closely... you have almost got it !
just uploaded a video below. A couple of lapses in concentration towards the end but hope it gives you enough to see where I am at to see where I can improve.
Sounds good doc. All i would say is to come up with a good ending and also pay attention to the rhythm in your intro...it sounded like you dropped time for one beat. Other than that, great job.
This is probably going to be my next tune. Do you have the full tab that I can print out? I am trying to follow the transitions through the lessons and piece them together.
Thanks Mike. I'll look out for it.
Here is my upload. Will listen to lesson 1 when it comes out. Appreciate your feedback as always.
Tempo, volume and rhythm sound good Doc. I would only add that when you play the bass E note, it is popping too loudly. Try putting that under control a little bit if you can, using it sparingly.
Hi Corey/Sonic Junction,
Is there a lesson one to this song?
Were the lyrics posted in that lesson too?
Would appreciate any help. Thanks
Hi Doc --- we're working on re-releasing the first lesson with new sheet music and loop points. It should be back up by the end of the week.
Thanks for your response Dave. I'll check that out at some point and turn the amplifier on next time!
That's helpful Corey- thank you. Your lessons are great and are keeping me motivated to play.
Thanks Corey. I'll remember that. It's not an effort at all to listen to your lessons but I should get on to the vocals at some point. I'll keep working on it.
Thanks for your encouragement Corey. I am loving your arrangements of these classics. Thanks so much for teaching us!
Hi Duke, I am new to sonic junction. Couldn't resist this MW tribute. looking forward to learning from you.
Hey Doc, Duke's Muddy/SJ lessons are tops. Duke's response to my guitar/ amp tone question put me one step closer to Muddy's sound. Welcome to SJ, nice clip of your muddy jam.

Hi Doc, Welcome to sonic junction. You sound great! Really good fluid feel and timing. very relaxed.... Duke
Hi Doc, Welcome to the club! Thanks for joining us and by this video I must say you are a great addition to us! Very good performance here. Your really got everything there was to get out of that lesson! Duke
Hi Corey, here is my attempt at this. As you can see I've been trying out different songs to highlight different issues in my playing. Not sure if I am getting the different dimensions that you talk about (digging in too much, brushing etc) but I thought I'd give them a try before things get busy for me again and I won't be able to post so often. Sorry for all the posts. Thanks!
Greetings Doc. I think you are doing a great job on the guitar here. I will listen again, but it feels like you are hitting the mark! Guitar sounds good too.... Nice one. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for this lesson Corey. Here is my attempt after lesson 1.
And another Corey: thank you!
Hi Corey - some rough spots here but I wanted to get something out to you before I head out today. Peace!
Greetings Doc...from what I hear here, you have a real good handle on it. Remember that when you play the licks that go up the neck, you can still play the low E string. Listen again closely to the song and I hope you can hear what I'm talking about. Thanks for posting.
Hi Corey, I have just joined sonic junction and look forward to learning from you throughout the year- what a privilege it is to learn from you. I'm starting with 44 blues. Looking forward to any comments for this and in the future to help me improve.
Thanks Doc for your support. All the best to you.
Sounds good so far...from what I hear here, you have almost got it. Try playing the bass at the same time that you play the main riff, instead of alternating. This will make your playing sound fuller. Thanks for posting.
