Frankie and Johnny > Solo - Lesson 2

Hello Friends,

This weeks lesson will be the 2nd solo chorus. This week go up to 2nd position to start playing a riff starting off of the major triad and then playing an F with ocatives. Then we play a double stop on the 4 chord and one up in second position before playing a piano like 5 chord figure. It's a pretty cool chorus so work it us and jump the blues.

 Great lesson!

In the chart, during the first 3 measures the octave is written to be played on the 1st and 4th strings, but it is actually played in the video on the 1st and 3rd strings.

Thanks Duke - you're really opening a door for me here! Played a couple of gigs last week and (at the age of 40, having gigged since my teens) I'm starting to sound like I want to. Owe it all to you and SJ. Happy holidays
