Hi Duke,Thanks so much for the feedback. Your lessons have made it possible for me to play this music. I can't thank you enough teaching on Sonic Junction.

Hi Duke,

This will be a ton of fun. When you post the track would it be possible to also have one with just the bass and drums so we can also work on laying down the rhythm guitar as well as the lead?

Looking forward to this series!

Thanks, Marty

Hi Duke, 

Here's my take on In A Mellow Tone. I made a backing track in iReal. I modified the intro- based on the version by Ella Fitzgerald. I played your solo for this first chorus and then improvised a chorus. Great lesson.

Thanks, Marty

Hi Bruce,

The combination of the painted headstock and the block inlays make me think that guitar might be a Fender Coronado II.

Hi Scott, In case you did not find it... The backing track can be played by pressing the icon as shown in the screenshot above. As far as I know there is no way to download the backing tracks directly. 

Cheers, Marty

Hi Duke,
 
Here's my take on Salute to Charlie Christian. I made a simple backing track so I had to change up the intro. I added a second solo chorus that I improvised. It's a mashup of things I've learned along the way through your lessons. I tried to play mostly out of the chord shapes as Paul showed in the lesson.
 
As always, thanks for teaching here on Sonic Junction.

Hi Duke,
 
This is the third time I've done this tune. This time I returned to a more traditional take on it. I've really been working on playing these tunes in their proper (slow) tempo. Playing them in a slow tempo has taught me a lot. I made a backing track in iReal and laid down lead and rhythm tracks. 
 
Thanks for the lesson,

Marty Perry commented on: TNT Solo, Second Chorus May 16, 2020

Hi Duke

Here's my take on TNT. As usual, for these swing tunes, I made a backing track (bass & drums) in iReal then added rhythm and lead guitar parts. 
 
Thanks for the great lesson.

Hi Duke,
 
Here's my take on Knock Me A Kiss. I made a backing track (piano, bass & drums) in iReal then added rhythm and lead guitar parts. As a public service I did not sing it, so my take is an instrumental. I tried to mimic the intro and ending of the Louis Jordan version with some octive slides.
 
Thanks for the great lesson.

Marty Perry commented on: Mood Indigo Solo Ideas Jan 06, 2020

Hi Duke,

 
Here's my take on Mood Indigo. I built a backing track in iReal (Piano, bass, drums) and then added the rhythm guitar. The track I found used a slightly different 1st A where the ii-V subs a Eb-7 to Eb7#5. It sounds cool so I went with it and modified the chord melody to match it. I tried to compose a solo of my own but dipped into many of the lines you've showed us in other lessons. 
 
*Edit: Fixed video/audio sync
 
Great lesson, Thanks, Marty

Marty Perry commented on: Johnny's Blues Backing Track Dec 15, 2019

Hi Duke, 

Here's my take on Johnny's Blues. I upped the tempo to about 120 and made my own backing track so I could try to do some harmonization like you did in the video with Paul. Another great lesson. Any feedback appreciated.

 
Thanks, Marty

Hi Duke,

I'd love a lesson on gospel style blues. Something along the lines of Worth Waiting' On from your Blues Full Circle album.

 
Thanks- Marty

Hey Mike, I'm not sure if you were aware that that link is busted. It goes to a backing track but it's not for this lesson. 

Laoyao, The backing track at this point is the last lesson in this series (Lesson 5: Jam Track with Duke).

Thanks, Marty

Hi Duke, Here's my second cut at it with your backing track. Ton of fun. I always love these tunes where we get to trade 4s with you. I went a bit overboard on the overdrive... you'ed probably say "too much mustard." :))

Hi Duke, Here's my cut at it. I made my own backing track just for fun and changed the tempo and ending slightly.

Thanks, Marty

Well that went a bit sideways... in a funky kind of way :) Looking forward to the backing tracks.

Thanks as always for another great lesson.

Hi Duke,

 

Well I keep coming back to this tune. Here is a different take my previous audio track. I changed up the feel to make it jump a bit more. I recorded a backing track and then did the chord melody and solo over that. I'm working on getting my audio and video in sync... still more to learn but I'm gaining on it!
