corey, i also did recordings of you've got to change your mind and laughing to keep from crying, if you have a chance to take a look at those....
Ok jay i will check those out thank you
Thanks for the feedback and encouragement. Yeah the singing takes some practise
lots og good singing/performance ideas in the lessons on this song - excellent.
Hi Corey I uploaded 44 Blues a couple of days ago hoping for some feedback when you have a momenT
Thanks for your comments amigo. I'll slow it down and work on the transitions. I see what you mean and it's a good suggestion.
I'm saving space on the wall here for the plaque.
ha!! i hear that....we have to work hard for our plaques these days but as the song says, nice work if you can get it!
keep it up jay, you're solidly on the path.
keep me filled in!
yeah corey, this is a great tune to play. looking for your feedback. thanks.
hi corey, peace. this is a bit rough, but i've got to play it and get it out there. and looking for your advise & feedback, thanks
Hi your guitar playing is solid and you keep good time. I would only suggest that you try brushing your stings with your thumb when playing the bass riff. Also don't be afraid to sing... keep working on it until you find a comfort zone. Good work. Thanks for posting.
hey corey, hope you enjoy this as much as i did
cheers, i look forward to your comments.
yes jay that is it. the guitar playing sounds steady and clear and the singing is good too. all is would say is for you to pay closer attention to your phrasing...it mostly sounds on point but sometimes it sounds like you are lagging behind the guitar a little. Then again this might be what you were going for...it sounds good though. Nice and simple.
here we go, dan. lots of fun singing this song, and really liking this social music idea.
hey there jay!
you're on it , man!! that's awesome and i really appreciate the playing here.
it sounds like you've spent a good amount of time with this one. it shows!
i'm best as a cheerleader because there's so much to celebrate but just in case you want a small suggestion here it is: i think if you slow things down a bit you'll make the transitions from chord to chord a little smoother and then you can pick up the tempo and it'll be nice and clean going through the song.
but basically you've got it, man. hats off to you for this!!!
and thank you for the video. you win the plaque for sending me my first one here at the junction!
wow dan, that finished off nicely. you could almost do another lesson on how to fancy up the playing the way you were doing there.
wow, thanks for bringing me back to this. i'd forgotten about it!
maybe it would be useful to bring out a bag of tricks that can be applied to a bunch of these songs, things to lift them up. i'm going to go back and review.
thanks for your comments man, i really appreciate them!
you're a hit dan, my grand daughter says she loves this, and this is what we're listening to now as she goes to bed. i play this for her, and a couple of your other tunes as well. i'm liking this social music. i get it. it's great.
you're living the dream, man. i really appreciate hearing this. this isn't always the way to look at music lessons but i've always believed that there's so much learning that can take place when we're playing and having fun with each other.
i just attended a "sound health" conference down here in DC - music and the brain - and your daughter's life will forever be changed if she's growing up in a musical household. keep it up, brother and get her playing whenever she's ready!
Oh yeah, this is great.
thank you for watching
hey corey, i found the lyrics you sing. looked it up under "truckin my blues away".
s'all good ma man
give thanks and pls pardon the late reply. how is learning the song going for you?
great tune Dan! nicely done
thank you jay!
lead belly is my all time favorite and this song has a lot of meaning for me. i think i'll add some more of his music in the near future...
hi corey, can you send out your lyrics for keep on truckin mama>?
rollin & tumblin is the last lesson i see on the web site. there must be other lessons, i'm sure. is there a lesson archive somewhere?
in particular, i'm looking for another open A Spanish tune. i'm doing CC Rider, Jinx blues (i find Dry Spell a bit tricky).
really like the lessons.
Hi Jay --- if you go to Corey's Artist Hub page, you will see a list of all of Corey's lessons.
We will be breaking them out by tuning over the next couple days.
hey I'm curious - any suggestions on how to play this tune up to your speed? I'm getting the tune, just not getting it up to your speed yet.
And if i could make a suggestion - could you do Dust My Broom sometime? I remember Taj Mahal doing a great live version years ago. great tune.
Greetings Jay. All you need to do is just learn it slow and then gradually, over time speed it up to tempo. If you know it slow then you really know it. So just take your time.
Thank you for the suggestion...yes I can do Dust My Broom sometime no problem. Honor.
I'm referring to your 2 lines of tab. what i've written here - that's the first line, second bar as I hear you play it, so the last note of this bar - the low D is on the off beat.
the second line first bar the first note would be the D (on 4th string), not the low D as written in your tab. Now the one beat falls in the right place.
Thank you for posting that. I will let the administrator know.
wow, this is great
Thanks Jay.I hope that you can get Something out of it.
