Rockabilly With Stuart Ziff #6: Everybody's Trying

Look at Mr. Perkins soloed over an "Everybody's Trying..." style tune. He used a lot of rhythmic hooks and didn't focus too much on single note lines, but rather would use chords and single notes within those chords to create melody.

Rockabilly With Stuart Ziff #5: Well Half Past Nine

Once finished with this lesson and series you'll discover that you've added the validity to the idea of playing a straight chromatic scale over a traditional blues. Brendan follows with a final discussion about how this relates to rock players in a Jazz-Blues setting.
  • Jun 11th, 2016 at 10:00 am CDT
