This week we are finishing up "Ain't Nobody's Busniess" with some additonal intro chordal possibilities and some new ideas for soloing from new melodies to double stops and we also go over playing over the diminished chord either using the diminished scale or just playing 'blue' notes that fit with the changes with the diminished chord. There are plenty of ideas to get you rolling on these kinds of songs here from single string BB King style to more basic blues and jazzier melodic lines and double stops. So I hope you all post something and show me what you got!

Hey Duke, I can't even begin to tell you how much I have been enjoying your lessons on Sonic Junction, particularly the swing style songs. I have always wanted to learn this style so these lessons are like a dream come true. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge and expertise. It's greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much Bradley! I'm glad you ding them helpful. Duke
Great Job Peter, I can see you are really improvising and it sounds great, right with the changes. duke
Cool. I think these lessons really work for me. I find the effort of making a video I like a really great way to learn the material. Thanks for great songs.
Better late than never, here's chords, melody and solo. Great tune :-D
Wow, Peter, great job! I hear so much more confidence and coherence in your playing. Well done!
Thanks Bruce. Your solos are awesome, and I can see from the Art in back of you that you are a super fan of the Blues :-D
Thank you, Peter!
You're very welcome Bruce, Duke
HI Bruce, Sounds good! I'm glad you're singing and playing it together. One thing to watch is on the second chord of the verse (D) you need to play over the D chord. All the other changes the blues you're playing works fine but you should play something over D for that measure. Can't decide if I like the Bruce or Satchmo version better! Good job, Duke
Hey Duke! So, my buddy Dave suggested I think more about throwing in some major pentatonic licks, and I decided that adding in some chords really does sound nice too. I think it's some of the best playing I've done. I would love to hear what you think about it! Thanks, Bruce
Hey Duke! Here's my video again, since you didn't get a chance to comment on it last lesson. Hope you're well! Best, Bruce
Sounds great Charlie. Nice lines and vibrato! Duke
Ok, here's my cut (complete with a few disapproving shouts of 'Dad' from my 4 year old in the background)
Hope I can do some justice to the awesome stuff I'm getting from your lessons here Duke - can't tell you how much you've helped me as a player!
And for all the SJ cats out there, if you haven't already heard them, check out the small group sessions Jimmy Witherspoon did with Kenny Burrell. Some of the coolest blues you'll ever hear!
Nice licks . Thanks Duke.
