Today we are starting a new tune and although it's not well known its one of my favorites. It's called "Never Mind" By Claude McLin, Chicago tenor sax man. Fun medium tempo groove tune of the highest order with a great melody. It's fun to play over the changes and this week we are learning the changes and rhythm guitar part. It's gonna be a fun one!

Hey Mike or Duke, can someone correct the tab. Measure 3 should start with a Bb triad (gospel) instead of a Dmi7
Hi Peter -- thanks for the feedback. I think Duke is playing the Dmi7 -- just using the middle strings. Sometimes what Duke plays during a run-through can be different from what he breaks down as he sub-conciously grabs a different chord variation / chord fragment. He also will vary the volume of each string too -- like just playing the middle two strings for this chord (at least that's what I hear). Does that make sense?
Hi Mike, thanks
At 3:25 Duke says he is playing a Bb Triad. This make sense to me as the chord progression then becomes ... Eb, Bb, Ab, G...
Very nice . Great tune !! Thanks Duke .
Great tune. Thanks for introducing me to someone I'd never heard of - can't find this song on iTunes or even YouTube! Looking forward to getting into this one
