So I'd messed around with this tune a bit before the lesson but I tried to take a few ideas from the different solo lessons and from Charlie's solo, and combine them with some of my own. Thanks for the fantastic lesson on such a great tune, Duke!!
Mike, have you checked out Truefire? Just like here, a monthly fee gives you access to everything on the website and every course includes pdfs of tab and jam tracks. The combination of that website and this one has improved my playing immensely and they have lots of courses for beginners and intermediate players.
Second that on the T-Bone lessons. It's really amazing how much he gets out of that single position and combining the blues scale and Mixolydian. He has obviously a repertoire of moves and those one can learn. But even though I've been listening to him for 20 years, his overall sense of phrasing is a nut I'm still trying to crack. Because if you just play in his position adding the 6th and the 9th to the blues box and can't do it with something resembling his phrasing, it comes off as sounding like beginner blues box noodling. I don't know if that makes sense, but I'm getting a better sense of it from this and the T-Bone Shuffle lesson. Thanks for that, Duke.
Joined up about two weeks ago and have been way too busy going through all the back lessons to actually post a video. I can't tell you how amazing it is to learn these songs from Duke himself. A real privilege. Anyway, this is certainly not a perfect take by far and I just started getting buzzing on the 1st string at the 12th fret the other day, so please forgive that, as well.
