Jump Your Blues
This is another excellent course. I love the way this one swings... Another course I need to go back and revisit... lots to chew on here.
Members, I'm committing a managerial asssist with Esteban's posting of his excellent Jump Your Blues recording. With Robert's new Forum format, players should post lesson/course performances under the particular lesson Thread.
So here's mi Caballero de Cataluna, Professor Blues' recording:
"Clayton, this morning I recorded for you 'Jump your Blues'. A revisited version, long time ago from my first performance. Not so easy in a single run. This is what remains......hope you like it, but as usual critics, comments and suggestions are warm welcome."
Sorry not to react on time....Thank you so much!!!!.
i just finished this blues riff, i enjoyed it good, it my first blues solo ever....
Fantastic, great news. Could you share it?.
Happy New 2018
I agree with Esteban- share and you will free yourself to play like a Rock'n Roller.
Take a look at the How to Record section on the Forum. It can be as simple as a voice recorder on your cell phone. Grab the sound, pass it around, and everyone gets inspired by skills and participation.
Robert, now that you got me digging into how T-Bone plays, this one has the feel of parts of Alimony Blues to me. I love the long triplet licks. So smooth...
Glad you like it. I'm happy with how this course turned out. The guitar tone is pretty sweet.
Perhaps the solo is a bit hard. However, it sounds good at a slightly slower tempo too, and it's quite a bit easier when played slower.
Robert, I really like this lesson at just a bit slower than what you put it at. Probably because I'm just slow 🙂
I have been listening to T-Bone quite a bit recently and thinking about how the vocals fit in. Some of the short individual licks in T-Bone Scuffle are good for the fill parts, others cross the transitions into lyrics. A lesson from you on how fills fit in with the vocals would be nice some time; what the minimal designs for the fill motifs are. I'm thinking a bit about your cool short lesson on the Mike Bloomfield lick!

Bluffy, give it a shot and try your own folks, post it here and see the response. Simply putting a recording together and composing your ideas will get you and members a big leg up on the idea.
Wow, awesome! This is a very rhythmic solo, isn't it? I applaud you for the effort! I think in general, you sometimes rush a little bit, which is very common - I do too. Overall, I think your bends are good, the tone is good, and you just have tighten things up and have fewer mistakes, and you'll be set to wow the crowd at the next blues jam session!
Yeah, now that's some time and effort that is really showing up in your recording! Really good stuff. And ALL the better for sharing and posting. Cheers!
I just recorded the solo! Pretty proud of that, even at 85% speed. You can have a listen here:
That was very good playing with the feeling that seems to come natural for you.
