Watch the Cantalope Woman online guitar lesson by Gil Parris from NYC Rhythm & Blues
Here I'll take some of the ideas I discussed in the preceding video and put them in a new extended performance with a background track. I'll talk you through it while I'm playing giving you insight into how I organize my solo ideas.
In the second video I'll show you how to get a grip on this unique sixteen bar form. I'll play all the voicings for you, the sharp 9's and the ii V progressions so you can hear everything in time and play along with me.
During the bass solo and some of the sax soloing I use some interesting voicings with minor 2nds, some suspended voicings and some rootless dominant 7th voicings. I'll break these down for you so you can utilize them in your own play.
