    Good goin' Josh! That's a tough sequence to get under your fingers. But, it's used in a ton of different tunes.

    Yeah definitely a handy and well used lesson in the blues.  You have the notes well under your fingers Josh and the sheer joy of practice will smooth out the rhythm nicely, well done Josh.

    Well done Josh.. I haven't reached that piece yet & it sounds like a tough one to learn.

    Another good one Josh. You added a nice swing feel to it also! This is one of those tunes that once you get farther along in the course it all of sudden is so easy to play even if you haven't been practicing it. Weird. Once again, keep it up!

    thanks ;D ;D, I don't know if I feel as confindent in myself as you are, its a funny thing I feel like I CAN play anything in the BBG book, and there is just some technique or block that is keep ing me from nailing these tunes.

    Josh,

    You did great on all 3 of these recordings.  All it takes at this point is repetition and they will feel and sound smoother & smoother.  Thanks for posting all three.

    Sounding good. I've been trying this one too.
    You do the slow version and you are itching to get faster, then the faster version makes your fingers tie in knots!

    Yep
    I tend to play it slowly on the first run and then on the repeat try to go much faster - still not as fast as the full speed, sometimes its goes well, only miss a couple of the double notes, and others, iI don't even Finish, but it is getting better and that is the point
