i really liked your playing on this one. Everything sounds spot on to me.
Coulf you reply with a link to the backing track or tell us where to find it ? Thanks !
Hi Mark. Wow, thanks so much! That's really nice of you to say, and it means a lot. The backing track is on the Lesson 1 Intro and Fills page. Thanks again!
Thx Duke ! Coming from you that means a lot to me !
Looking forward to hearing your next album Blues Bash !
I made my own rhythm track and put a solo to it. I hope you like it ! Looking forward to the rest of this lesson.
Thats Duke on the vocal !!! Not Dr.John
Here's an example of Tiny Grimes playing rhythm changes https://youtu.be/u7HX6bFQCvo
I had some technical difficulty but the solo is now posted
Here is my attempt at a cohesive solo. Thanks for any feedback !
where is your solo ??
When I practice rhythm by myself I tend to play a chord and then strum the muted strings to keep time. Is this a really bad habit ? So for example if there are four beats to the bar and I am hitting the chord on two and four but hitting the muted strings in between. I suppose when I play with a band I don't do this. Should I practice with a metronome instead ? I do want to go into the recording studio soon and I want to get rid of any bad habits . Thx for your reply
Here is my video - there’s a few things I would have done differently but let me know what you think !
Thanks Duke !
I would like to cover your song Fishnet at my local blues jam. I believe I have most of the lyrics just from listening to it. Would it be possible to view the lyrics somehow ? I searched the net but couldn’t find them.
i love the lessons. Can you tell me something about the Strat you are using in this lesson? What make or year ? Any special pickups ? Thx
I also would love to see a lesson for a jump blues such as T Bone Boogie ! Great tune. Thx
Great tune ! Just curious why you changed the key to G. The Kenny Burrell, T Bone Walker and Nat King Cole version are in the key of Eb.
Are you using just the flesh of your fingers or any fingernails when you play Albert Collins style ?
Great video of you with Albert Collins. Is that Debbie Davies playing as well ? How did you get the Strat to sound like Albert's Tele ?
I love your CD Wobble Walkin ---Any plans to release a book with transcriptions of those songs ? I would love to keep learning the chords and lines that you use on that CD. If not, then please continue to highlight those concepts on sonic junction !
All the best,
Exactly ! Wes Montgomery style octaves ---can be useful as you know in the blues for variation
Thanks Duke for the feedback ! I love these lesssons ! Any chance you could demonstrate some octave work on a future tune ?
