We're re-issuing one of Duke's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Duke:
Hello Folks, the first lesson on my song "Cookin" is learning the chords and working on a organ style shuffle rhythm which actually is derived from the 20s dance "the Charleston" believe in or not. The first beat being on the 1 and the second beat being anticipated to create that rhythm that goes so well with a shuffle. The rhythm here is simple and just makes a nice pad for the soloist. Also the 13th chord voicings sound nice and can be introduced later in the solo to make it build. I have introduced the #5 also as a passing chord to the 4 chord here.
Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
Loop 0:00 Cookin' from Guitar Groove A Rama
Loop 1:26 Breakdown of Rhythm
Loop 8:24 Practice Loop of Rhythm
Loop 9:45 Rhythm Variations
Loop 16:45 Closing Thoughts

Hope it helps Wether! Thanks, Duke
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.
Sorry I missed you in Austin last week Duke. Saw it pop up in my feed. Maybe next time...
Hopefully i'll be back before long. We had a ball!
