Anyone know the chord variation at 13:26 of the video???
Thanks for a great lesson and such great advice. I also wish I'd learned to read (I had a weird mental block as kid that somehow if I did it would mess up my ear). And I'm with you on phrases over scales. Really just want to say a big thank you for your advice over the last few years. My band is picking up some lovely gigs at venues with (what I call) listening audiences. Really feel like we're making some great music. I'm lucky to be playing with some wonderful musicians, but there's no way I could keep up my end without guidance like this! P.S. speaking of flat 5ths I've been obsessing over a Jimmy Smith number with Kenny Burrell, Sugar Hill, they both play some very cool, weird sounding licks
Just beautiful! Thank you Duke : )
God this is the real deal! This couldn't be better timed for me! My band line-up is piano, tenor sax, upright bass, drums and me on guitar. We're really trying to explore where/how the guitar can sit in with the sax (as opposed to playing "straight" rhythm). Been listening to a lot of Ray, who didn't use much guitar (apart from when he did : ) and see how we can get try and get close to the GENIUS! Thanks so much! Also, love how you're linking back to Johnny and Oscar Moore - you can really hear Charles Brown in Ray. Love this!!!
Here's my rough cut. God how I love B.B! Thanks for yet more great insights. I was listening to Ray Charles this morning and his May Ann is this structure (and he lifted that riff from T-Bone). Also heard Elmore James playing something v similar but forget the title as I type.
Here's my cut. Ideally I would have waited a month to give it some polish, but this is the raw first attempt. Pretty sloppy in places, but hopefully the ideas are in the zone. I could hear (but not play) how Kenny Burrell might approach it in places. Thanks as always for the inspiration and instruction Duke!
Happy New Year Duke! Great lesson, I always love to hear you talk and share experience and wisdom! really good to hear you talk about all these greats, especially Chuck Berry. I find his records so hard to play along with! My piano player and I were trying to dissect 'How you've changed' recently, it's a treasure trove and we're nowhere near it! : )
Beautiful! Thanks Duke. What I LOVE about your lessons is how we can jump from Jimmy Reed to Doris Day and it's all GREAT music.
PS there's a great Dean Martin version of this, but I'll work from the Doris version : )
Thanks Duke! What a beauty! Love what you've done with it, can't wait to get deeper into it
Wow! Duke, you have shared nothing but tasty stuff since the day I signed up, but this may just be the hippest thing I heard! Absolutley love this!!! Thank you. Please keep 'em coming!
Thanks Duke - loved this series! Thanks for the garage sale ; ) As always I'm sharing the first take (I'd never remember to share if I didn't do it immediatley!) Finally got gigs booked so can't wait to take all the great Duke/SJ learning out there. Thank you!
Thanks Duke! This kind of lesson is invaluable : ) Here's my first attempt
Love it! Thanks Duke. Posted video on last weeks lesson (jumped the gun ; )
Thanks a great lesson and a great track! I've jumped the gun and made a video. I love Freddie King so much! He's been part of my life since I was 16. Thanks for opening the door on his style of playing : )
Thanks Duke! Really appreciate the tone tips as well - invaluable!
Hi Charlie, I had trouble finding your video, maybe I will find it later, could be my connection. Duke
Love this number! Can't wait to dig deeper. Thanks Duke
Awesome! T-Bone's the man, the gold standard! I'd really appreciate if you could share what you know around his playing on augmented chords. Thanks as always Duke
Here's my cut. Absolutely loved this one (as always). I cursed myself a few times about phrasing over the 2/5 and diminished - but at least I know where I need to put some time in. Can't wait to see what's next - and to see that beautiful Barney Kessell guitar!
Hi Charlie, You sound great playing this! i am enjoying your own lines alot. some of your double time stuff is very good and i can hear it going from your head to your fingers, which is the point. Keep up the good work! Duke
Thanks for opening up another classic! Really enjoying this one! And what an amazing guitar!!! You play some beauties but this one is really special!!! Maybe one lesson could be on Barney Kessels blues playing - how about the stuff he did with T-Bone on Atlantic?
That's a very good idea! i'll look for a tune of his. There's alway blues in whatever Barney plays! Duke
Oh what a treat! Thanks Duke
