Jazzy Blues Comping and Chord Melody > Lesson 5

Hello Folks,

This weeks lesson follows the jump blues soloing theme but in this chorus we go up to the next position and learn a chorus of swinging style blues an octave about the last verse, building up to a conclusion. Try jumping around in different positions with these riffs and work on making up your own solo incorporating these riffs and position playing.

Per Mark's request here is my backing track for "Duke's Garage Sale." I made this in iReal and added the rhythm guitar part. Enjoy!

Is there a backing track for these lessons ?

Hi Mark, As far as I know there was no backing track for this lesson. I'd be happy to post the one I made if you think it would be useful.

Hi Duke,

Here's my take on your "garage sale" of jazzy blues ideas. I made an up tempo backing track in iReal and added the rhythm guitar part. I made up a simple head and then used the ideas you showed to build up a solo section. I added a few choruses of my own near the end of the solo. This was great fun. Thanks for the lesson.
