Duke,

I have been a student for 3 years but have been listening to you for years! I am sending you this video to show you where I am at in my journey of learning the blues.  I look forward to your feedback!

Hi Jeff, Thank you for posting your video! I enjoyed it very much and I see you have absorbed a lot of the T-Bone style in your playing. I'm always happy to see that. Sounds great and thanks for working with us here at Sonic Junction.. Duke

Hey Duke, maybe have to try this one out when your at Callahans next week. I was wondering if you ever time to meet with any of your students when you are out and about. My wife and I have tickets to your show with Jim McCarty next Saturday. Can't wait  !

Hello Jeff, I am sorry I didn't make the Callahan's show. I really wanted to be there but my doctor ordered me to stay home. I am still sick actually. To answer your question, Yes, I often meet my students at my shows and its always a pleasure. Again, my appoligies for not being there Saturday night. I heard it was a great show. Duke

Hey Duke, l am enjoying your lessons. I am participating in my areas local jams here in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I am constantly being reminded to try not to play "bar" chords for fear of "muddling" up the mix with the bass. I notice that the majority of your lessons include a lot of the bass line in the chords and the melody or head Leaving out the b and high e. Is this intention to leave that open for the solo . Also l notice the 5 of the chord on the bottom. I have heard you say that this is a nice combination of the 5th and the root note that the bass is playing. Do you think you could expand on this a little more. I have only been participating in the jam seen for about a year and half. Taking a break now hoping to add some of your lessons in the near future. Thanks Jeff.                    Also song suggestion Early in the Morning .
