And here's mine. A first take, so there are a few flubs, but it felt good, and who wants clean Blues anyway ;-)
Hey Peter, Sounds good! I think continuing to play this song would be a good way to get comfortable with the faster tempo. I can e a bit challenging playing faster tempos. At my age they're all challenging! lol!
Hi Duke, I have continued to enjoy this song, and followed your advice of bringing up the tempo. Here is another drop using your backing track *phew*... I get a bit carried away ;-)
Hey Peter! Great job! Your playing gets better with each video, and it's obvious you're having more fun too. Nice to see! Keep it going! Regards, Bruce
The latest video feels great Peter. Keep up the good work!
Hey Duke! I've had a lot of fun and learned a lot working on this one. I worked on your parts and then went back and did my best to play my version/interpretation of Pee Wee's licks in an effort to sound like Bruce Dumes playing Pee Wee and not Bruce Dumes playing Duke playing Pee Wee! So I'm playing it in Bb along with Pee Wee. If only Pee Wee had given me a count off, I could have started it with him! ;-) Hope you like it! Bruce
Great job Bruce! Really with it all the way. When the chord riffing comes in and you play the 6th chord instead of the BB triad it sounds good along with the record. Almost western swing. Excellent version!
Thanks very much, Duke! That is extremely gratifying to hear. I really appreciate the observations. Thanks for the great lesson! I sure learned a lot! This is a tune that will be an "every day player" for me for a long time to come. I really get a kick out of playing it.
