This week we are going on to a third solo chorus for Glide On. This one starts simple but then leading to the four chord starts what I call "my favorite Bill Jennings lick" which is double timing a decending line. When we get to the four chord I add a continued decending line which requires we play a new set of chords to an altered blues form. It still amounts to 12 bars but in a new way that keeps decending until the 2/5 change. It's fun and interesting and I think you will all enjoy learning it. Many of the riffs in this song constitute a fairly good part of my jazzy/boppish blues lines. I utilize them as points within a solo to accentuate an idea and take it to another level.
Have fun with this and I will be looking forward to hearing you all play this tune!
