Cookin' > Outro and Ending

We're re-issuing one of Duke's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Duke:

This week we are going to learn the outro to 'Cookin'. The outro consists of two choruses of chord riff punctuations that bring the song to a climax. You won't hear them on the sound page here. The song was too long to fit in the time allowed so it's not there. It's funny, Jimmie kept missing the ending and the producer went over the tape each time Jimmie missed it which (the ending outtro) didn't even make the soundpage. So we lost all the best solos and they were WAY better than what you hear on the sound page. Anyway the out riffs are cool and the second chorus is something I find very hard to execute myself these days. So don't be disappointed if you can't do it at a fast tempo. And if you can, congratulations, you can play faster than Duke Robillard!

Hi Duke,

Here's my take on Cookin'. I took the backing track that Mike provided at 175bpm and gassed it up to 200bpm with Anytune to match your recording... yikes! that's Cookin'! This was a ton of fun. Thanks so much for the great lesson!

Hey Marty, Great job! You certainly are Cookin'! Congratulations, you now can play that tune faster than I can. Duke

Thanks Duke. I'm now up to 1/2 as fast as you used to be able to play it. :)
