Duke, it's always intriguing to see you playing an Epiphone. Acquisition syndrome prevails,and although I am playing a Sheraton 11, I always have an eye out for a Gibson ES 335, which I have never actually played. Just wondering if,for my intermediate level of play, I would notice a striking difference between the two guitars. Or, does anyone else in this forum have an opinion on this?

 

Thank you again for these lessons. There is nothing else like this on the web--first class and one of a kind.

Duke, thank you for this. A number of Tiny Grimes CD or vinyl choices on Amazon. Are there one or two that you would recommend above others?

Thank you the 2 DC Federal set recommendation, Bruce. Received it earlier this week--just as you said--killer.

What a blast, Duke. The lessons are an education every week--as much if not more to be said for your choice of the artist (and blues number) as the lesson itself. 

Thank you!

Scott, just came across this lesson a couple of weeks ago. Followed your suggestion and received the BJT LP today, vintage. Great suggestion--what an education-thank you. Let me know what else you'd recommend from Big Joe Turner.

Duke, 

At about 6 minutes in you mention "going back to the beginning" to really learn this old school style. I'm wondering what that path looks like, or more particularly, which early artists to follow. Thank you for this lesson. As you mention, it has a foundational component to it--good starting point for early intermediate playing.

Thomas, Players like Lowell Fulson, T-Bone Walker, Gatemouth Brown, Goree Carter, Guitar Slim and many others i can't recall this moment. Try Googling early jump Blues guitarists 1947 to 1955 and you should get more info. Thanks, Duke
