Glide On > Chord Variations and Outro

Hi Everyone,

This week is our final Glide On lesson.  We go over a few points about playing on it and I introduce another alternative 4 bar start of a jazz/blues chord option developed by Charlie Parker. It's a really cool 4 bars of chords starting with Bb then A minor7 flat5 to D7 then Gm7, F#m7, Fm7 then to the four with the rest of the changes for last week's lesson.

We also learn the ending for the final head which is a cool desending riff blues scale riff. Lots of cool stuff here in the lessons for this tune that can come in handy for similar types of tunes.

Hi Duke,

He's my first cut at putting it all together. My camera is still on the fritz so just an audio track this time.

As always thanks for a great lesson.

Hey Marty, That was really great. For a minute I thought I was listening to myself! You really got a good grasp of this. Now I want to hear you play your own solo and throw in some of the phrases but improvise keeping what you've learned from this in mind. Great job! Duke

Walking with the dogs through the near foorest and looking forward to practice Duke's new lessons.

I hope someday we will get a great chord changes lesson- Duke plays them so great!!!

Hey Duke

I am busy 24/7 chasing two new puppies with a scooper. Whenever I get a chance I am listening to your lessons and practicing movable minor and major pentatonic blues scales which I am hoping brings me closer to my goals of being a better jazz/blues player. Until then...

for a poor amateur like me it would be extremely helpfull,to have your nice chord changes and ideas also as tabs.

Please think over wether you could make that possible.

Greetings Frank
