Paul and Duke, thank you so much. This is a great lesson and I am really excited about this series - especially the right hand pulse technique ( Paul your right hand strum sounds so full and yet percussive at the same time).
Paul could you elaborate a little more on the shell voicings? For example would the shell voicing be the 3rd, 5th and 7th? From a theory perspective, why is it that the tones in the shell voicing don't get in the way of the soloist?
Thanks for a great lesson. Yet another great tune that I've been playing ever so slightly wrong for the last 20 years! I can't even begin to tell you how much a weekly leeson from the great Duke Robillard means to me.
Thank you !
Roger, Thank you very much, I really appreciate that! Duke
Duke - I love this Peter Green stuff! Sorry about my audio quality.
A run through the A section chords and melody. Thanks for the great lesson Duke! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
Ahh Duke - great lesson! Peter Green licks on a sweet sounding Les Paul, on a BB tune - it doesn't get much better does it? I'm going to spend some serious time with this lesson. Thank you !
Duke, still working on improving my timing by tapping my foot. Let me know what you think. Thank for all the great lessons
Here's my frist try on the melody. I'm workig on the solo parts now and will try to post that soon. Thanks !
Here's where I am so far on this tune. I am having trouble with the walkup bass from F to F# to G so I am still working on that but left the bass notes out on this. I'll post another video when I have worked on the walkup. Love this tune. Thanks.
I am already seeing some progress using longer lines and tapping my foot. Its amazing that such a simple thing as tapping your foot can help so much. Thank you !
Duke, here's my attempt at soloing in the Slow Blues in C. I really struggled with some of the phrasing. As I was improvising it didn't seem like it but after watching the video I had too many fast flurries of notes followed by lots of empty space. I could really use your advice on how to improve my improvisation. Thanks.
Duke, thanks so much for teaching me this great tune after I've been butchering it for 25 years! Here is my attempt at the Jumpin Blues outro. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Duke, thanks so much for this these lessons. I like the others have struggled with this tune for many years. What a joy is is to FINALLY play it correctly. I'm having some challenges posting videos on here but hopefully I'll be able to get something up soon. Thank youi !
Here's my attempt at the Cookin' head and solo. Admittedly its a bit sloppy in a few places. This tune has been very challenging, but I LOVE the lessons.Thanks for your feedback.
Thanks Mike and Duke for your kind comments. Posting the first video for everyone else to see was very stressful, but also a very enlightening way to critique my own playing that I had not previously experienced. Great tool.
Mike - yes I have smaller hands also and do not try to use my thumb very often - it usually just doesn't work for me. On a different note I discovered last night while working on lesson 3 that it is easier to play Cookin closer to the tempo of Duke's recordings on my strat rather than my epiphone. I think probably my strat just has a "faster" neck due to the setup. It seemed to make a big difference for me on this particular style.
Great lesson, but wow - very challenging. I better get to work on this !
Here's my first attempt at video.
