Hello Friends, On this our 3 leeson for "Confessin" we are working on the second A section. It is similar to the first A but we have some twists and of course the seconding ending leading to the bridge. There a few embelishments I use in this section that are right from the style of Les Paul. One is sliding down the high E string from C to G with only picking the first note and sliding over each fret to make each note ring out. The other is play a sharpe 11 chord and sliding up the fretboard every two frets or whole step 4 times until we end with a 6-9 G chord at the end on the 11th fret! Fun stuff.
Enjoy, DukeTopics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:

Great feel and phrasing, I will have a track soon to play along with. Again nice job! Duke
Thanks Duke. Great tune. I also posted to the "chords" lesson. It was a nice challenge.
Here I've attempted to do lessons 2 and 3.
Hi Steve --- beautiful. It's a great melody and you play it really well. Love those last couple bars.
Excellent !!! Thanks Duke .
