Marty Perry commented on: T-Bone Walker in G Chord Comping Feb 13, 2021

Hi Duke,

Here's my cut at trying to incorporate some T-Bone style licks and chord ideas into my playing. I came up with a head reminiscent of the T-Bone shuffle and tried to fit T-bone ideas into a 3 chorus solo. I finished up with the head to close it out. Thanks for a great lesson and wonderful backing track.

Thanks Duke. I'm now up to 1/2 as fast as you used to be able to play it. :)

Hi Duke,

Here's my take on Cookin'. I took the backing track that Mike provided at 175bpm and gassed it up to 200bpm with Anytune to match your recording... yikes! that's Cookin'! This was a ton of fun. Thanks so much for the great lesson!

Hi Duke,

Here's my take on Someone to Love. A great tune for these troubled times. Thanks so much for the lesson and the fantastic backing track. I had a great time working on this and learned so much... as I always do from your lessons.
 
Thanks-Marty

Hi Duke,

Here's my run at Wash Out. I kept it in the same form as the original mainly because I think I could play that groove all day long :). I doubled the rhythm guitar part that you played which is also a fun groove to play. Thanks for another great lesson. These full backing tracks with bass and drums are just fantastic!

Hey Marty, You sound great on this. Very natural and comfortable with good time. I like that you are playing the basic solo but putting your spin on it also. Keep up the good work! Duke

Hi Duke,
 
Here's my run at Romance In The Dark. I worked on this tune the first time it was published but it was fun to revisit it. Wow that is such a fantastic track. So great to be able to practice playing behind a vocalist as superb as Sunny. Thanks for the great lesson.

Marty Perry commented on: Careless Love Jam Track Nov 25, 2020

 
Hi Duke,
 
SInce I had my old 67 Mustang out from recording Sonic Shuffle I was looking for another tune to try with it. Careless Love seemed like a perfect fit! I wanted to try all the rhythm parts and try it at a similar BPM (115) that you did on your album so I built up a bass and drum track in iReal. I did the flat tire rhythm and the rhythm part you played behind the keyboard over the modulation to C. I improvised a lead part over that C modulation in place of the keyboard. I also added a third rhythm part with some chord fragments to fill it out. This was a ton of fun. Thanks as always for teaching on SJ!

Marty Perry commented on: Sonic Shuffle Stop Time Soloing Nov 08, 2020

Hi Duke,

This was a ton of fun. I enlisted my old 67 Fender Mustang for this tune as it had the right vibe  to play off what you did on the head. It was fun to work on matching up your timing on the head. You really lay back on the time and that took some practice to get in that groove and not play ahead of you. I finished up with a 2 chorus head and doubled myself on guitar to give it the same feel as the opening head. Thanks for a great lesson and a great track to work with.

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.

Marty Perry commented on: Sonic Shuffle Head Breakdown Sep 05, 2020

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

Marty Perry commented on: Salute to Charlie Christian Solo - B Section Jun 28, 2020

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.

Marty Perry commented on: If I Had You Soloing May 31, 2020

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.
