This is the tenth lesson of Duke Robillard's Swingin' the Blues series of swing guitar lessons. Lesson 10 is a double lesson focused on learning both the rhythm and lead parts to Moten Swing. In this lesson, Duke gives a general overview of soloing in jazzy blues, avoiding minor pentatonic scale on the I chord, using the "old style" swing-scale pattern, double stops, solo riffs based on tones of passing chords and playing over the II to V change.

Great lesson, pitched at just the right level.
Would it be possible to have notation as well for the solo stuff?
I think on page 7 and 15 F7 should be Eb7 on sheet.
Hi Duke .. I enjoyed this lesson a lot. Especially the 3rd practice track.
