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

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!

Hi Duke,

 
Here's my run at the solo. I've been working on my own take but your lines just sound so sweet it's hard not to play them! I am learning how your lines lead to the chord tones and why they sound so good. It's it ton of fun to learn this stuff. Thanks for another great lesson.

Hi Duke,

Loved this lesson. Here's an audio track I put together that has me doing a backing track, chord melody section and solo section. As always, a work in progress but I'd love to get your feedback.

Thanks again,

Marty

Hi Duke,

 
I've been working on this for a while. This tune was like climbing Mt. Everest for me. I'm closing in on the summit but still have a ways to go :) . I thought I would get something down and get your feedback.
 
I learned more than I can say and can't thank you enough for the lesson.

Hi Duke,

He's my first cut at putting it all together. My camera is still on the fritz so just an audio track this time.

As always thanks for a great lesson.

Hey Marty, That was really great. For a minute I thought I was listening to myself! You really got a good grasp of this. Now I want to hear you play your own solo and throw in some of the phrases but improvise keeping what you've learned from this in mind. Great job! Duke

Hi Mike,

The automated page turning worked fine (Mac running Safari). 

To echo Peter's comments, It's not super valuable to me. I would rather have a window within the window for the tab which could be continuously scrolled. That way I can work on stuff between page boundaries. 
 
As always, thanks for a great site.

Hi Duke, Here is my first try at it. My camera audio sounded awful so I just did an audio track.
