TNT > Solo, Second Chorus

Hello Folks,

Our final lesson for TNT is a second chorus of soloing. This time we are more in the second position and build up the solo by way of playing mostly in a higher register. I would like to see you all learn this second chorus then incorporate as many of these lines into your own playing and post some videos. We have done quite a few of these types of tunes in my lessons so I am looking forward to hearing what you have learned so far. The song goes back to the head for another two stop time choruses before it closes. Lets see some videos posted folks.

Hi Duke

Here's my take on TNT. As usual, for these swing tunes, I made a backing track (bass & drums) in iReal then added rhythm and lead guitar parts. 
Thanks for the great lesson.

Hey Duke! So here's my take on this one. I didn't use the quick four because it was too much trouble to change my backing track. :-) Great tune, lots of fun to play. I'd love to get your feedback on this. Thanks! Bruce

Love it! Thanks so much Duke - can't tell you how much I love Bill Jennings (and Billy Butler, Kenny Burrell, the list goes on...) You and SJ have helped me SO much
