Dust My Broom > Solo and Endings Breakdown

Now we can talk about endings. We want to make sure our endings are memorable, but at the same time are in keeping with the spirit of the song. Keep it simple and effective and you can't go wrong. If you are feeling shaky about anything up until now, take the time you need to tighten that up through dilligent practice.

Hi Corey. I was taping this and suddenly the lyrics of a different song jumped into my head, so I went with it. ;-) It's a song called "Dr. Brown", done in the Elmore James style by Jeremy Spencer with the early Fleetwood Mac, when they were still a blues band. I'm working really hard to be committed to my thumb here and keeping it solid on the rhythm while the slide does it's thing. I hope that comes across well. Would be very grateful to hear your thoughts on my humble contribution in the tradition of the great Elmore James. Best, Bruce

Greetings and thanks for sharing this. I can tell that you are really enjoying yourself here.  What kind of guitar is that....I like it.

 For the song,  I would suggest that you work on your slide. By that I mean the tone and the phasing of the slide lick. I hear your metronome... That's good you are using it. Make it your goal to learn to tap your foot to keep time. Also try to get your bass to the point that you can keep it steady  throughout the song,  while you are playing the slide lick.  Good luck
