"IT'S BEEN A LONG, LONG TIME" LESSON - LES PAUL AND MY OWN SOLO IDEAS - Intermediate/Advanced
On this lesson I combined two Les Paul solos, one from “Chester and Lester” version and from the original Bing Crosby recording that creates one of the prettiest solos I’ve ever played. Additionally I add another solo form of my own creation that combines arpeggios and melody. This is a great study for C to C#dim7 to Dm7 phrases that are a reoccurring mainstay in hundreds of standards. I also include the rhythm that includes bass movement that to me, replicates a mini-piano. Both the Bing Crosby and the Chester and Lester intros are included too. This lesson is fun filled with licks and techniques in the context of one of the loveliest tunes ever written.
