I Never Knew > Soloing, B Section

Hello Friends, this week we are finishing up I Never Knew by working on soloing on the bridge and last A section. I show examples of lines and riffs for both the bridge and last A. It's a fun song to play and I'm sure you'll be swinging on it before long. On the track we play 4 choruses. The first and last for melody and the two middle choruses for soloing. I am looking forward to hearing you play this one so post some videos please.

Hi Marty, Great job! I like the two solos on different guitars. Nice contrasts. Good ideas and I thought I heard a line from a Charlie Christian solo on an outakes album. I like the doubled octaves on the hear also. Gives it a bit of a vibes sort of sound. Good going! Duke

Hey Bruce, Sounds great and I like the "shave and a haircut ending! Duke

Thanks a lot, Duke!! The ending popped in my head at the last minute and I couldn't help myself. ;-)  My goal is to be good enough to do guitar gigs by summer 2020. I'll be living in Bloomington, Indiana by then, so the competition will be a lot less fierce than here in Los Angeles where I live now. Honestly -- how do you think I'm doing towards that goal? Is it realisitic? Thanks Duke!

Hey Duke! Great set of lessons, it's been a fun tune to work on. I feel a lot more confident. Would love to hear what you think about this one. 


And Charlie, nice job! That White Falcon is really beautiful. It must feel like you're driving a Lincoln Continental when you're playing that thing! 

Hope you enjoy my take on this, Duke! Best to you, the Dutchess and Miss Minnie. Bruce

Thanks Bruce, lovely stuff yourself, really dig those chord things you’re doing.

The Falcon is a beautiful guitar. Haven’t bonded with her yet (almost feels too nice to play, which is my dumb excuse : )

Hey Duke - thanks (as always) for yet another awesome series of lessons! You're an awesome teacher and I can't thank you enough for the musical doors you continue to open for me! 

Here's my take (complete with family audience in background, hence my sending first rough cut - believe me I was playing like Django while this was uploading ; )
