Shuffling and Soloing In G > Soloing in 2nd Position, Part 2

Howdy Friends,

This week we are finishing up the shuffle in G solo with last half of the second chorus. As always get this under your belt then try to expand on the basic ideas. And I am really looking forward to trading licks with you on the appropriate choruses. A tip or two about that section. Often players echo each others lines sometimes. Or, it's also so cool to repeat the last line of a player an d then take it to a new level. There are all sorts of ways to make it an interesting conversation. So let's have some fun playing back and forth on this! New set of lessons coming next week.

Hey Duke! So here's a stab at this one. It was a lot of fun to play with you! And the new "Duke Twin Tone" was very inspiring. Hope you like this one, please let me know what you think. Bruce

That sounds great Bruce! It also sounds like you are getting comfortable with my laid back grooves. That's good! Was that the twin tone you were playing there? Duke

Thanks, Duke! Yup, that's my Twin Tone! I am definately feeling more and more comfortable with the grooves, the pocket, and the spaces between the notes. Even my wife and neighbors have remarked on it! They get to hear my progress whether they want to or not. ;-) Thanks again for the great lesson and kind words! Bruce

Thanks Duke! It was an honour to trade fours with you! Afraid I couldn't get a cut were my 16 month year old boy wouldn't insist on sitting in (but at least you know the blues is safe for the next generation!)

Hey Duke! I'm still working on this and I'm absolutely loving the challenge. Hearing my playing in context with yours was a real eye opener! ;-) This set of lessons is fantastic. All of the improv advice is such great stuff and the way you discuss makes it so easy to grok. I'm going to come back and listen to these over and over. I wanted to share a pic of my new guitar with you. I was stunned how beautiful it was -- it is way prettier than the pictures. It sounds great and plays great, especially now that I put on a set of 10s. I like the heavier strings -- the lighter ones are hard for my fingers to hold onto when I bend. Anyway -- I'll have a video for you soon, but I wanted you to know how meaningful this set of lessons has been! Thanks Duke! Bruce
