Watch the Intro and Head online guitar lesson by Gil Parris from NYC Rhythm & Blues
I'm going to break down the intro and the head to my tune "Blue Thumb". This is a rumba and I harmonize the melody in diminished chords. I'm going to show you how to use this diminished concept for soloing. I'll show you the different dynamic items I utilize and articulation items I utilize in this. There's going to be some downpicking of the rumba rhythm, some Wes Montgomery thumb style playing and some plucked 3rds along with some unique voicings of minor 6ths chords.
