Looked up the Bobby Bland recording: it is on the Duke label!

Hi Duke, band rehearsals cancelled because of corona. But I feel lucky to have some home Cookin' to do. Great tune, great rhythm. Many thanks.

Thank you Duke for another year of great lessons.

My resolution for 2018: do at least one video of me struggling.

Thank you. Great song, great arrangement. Just what our band needs to counterbalance all the ballads and bossa's we play. It will keep the audience awake too!

Hi Duke, I'd like to know which chords are played under the 8 bars right after the 13th chords and before the first chorus.

Thanks, Wieger

Hi Duke,

Revisiting your great lessons on Route 66, I've got one question just to make sure. Do I hear correctly that the chords under the second part of the intro are those of the turnaround?

Many thanks & best regards,

Wieger

Hi Duke, Sorry to hear you injured your hand. Speedy recovery and best wishes from the No-Ice-Netherlands!

Hi Duke, No big deal, but I noticed you started the song in G and now you end it in F sharp. For any particular reason? I can't imagine you would ever modulate down in a live performance, would you?

On double stops: you put a lot in your Swinging with Lucy Mae lesson, almost to the point of overdoing it, but very useful for study and excercise.

Can't wait to see what you got cooking for us next week!

Hi Duke,

It is not technical complexity but emotional intensity that makes good music. A case in point is this version of Rock me baby: Sugar Pie DeSanto. Live in England, 1964. Willie Dixon on bass, Hubert Sumlin on guitar according to the commenters. Here is the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZIzF2uC9MM.

Anyway, I enjoy your lessons very much and play better by the day.

Best regards,

Wieger

p.s. Any people around Utrecht, Holland, interested in playing Duke's teachings together?
