Duke Robillard . Swingin' the Blues

Recommended Posts

For those of you that are interested in learning how to play more jazz / swing / melodic blues, we just finished making a series of lessons with Duke Robillard .. Swingin' the Blues. You can check out the videos / songs here:




The goal for this series is to transition a player familiar with standard 12 bar blues to more melodic and complex jazz / blues / swing playing. The series first focuses on jazz / blues and swing rhythm guitar to lay a solid foundation and then teaches passing chords, comping, riffing, double stops and lead guitar. The series ends by putting to work your new knowledge in three songs: Swingin' with Lucy Mae, Moten Swing and Lester Leaps In.


Duke plays a real nice Gibson through a Fender Deluxe Reverb ...
