So now we're gonna work on a song that I
It's on my first record called Red Wing.
And it's, the song is entitled Lucky
It's in the key of C, [SOUND] and it's my
attempt at sort of writing a swing tune.
So I thought it'd be a good chance to sort
of get into a little bit of
something different than Bluegrass, some
And I'll show you the melody but
let's just go over some of the chords
first real fast.
So we've got C.
And then C, C minor.
F, F minor, C, A minor, D.
G,D, C, and then to get to the B part
which is an E we go C, B,
So it's kind of a cool way to modulate so
the, the B part modulates so we're in C.
To get to E we go to the five of E by
going down to B.
[SOUND] And then, up to the E.
And then, and then the B parts in E.
[SOUND] B, E [SOUND] E, B, E, again.
And then, we go to A.
[SOUND] We're kind of going through the
circle of fifths here.
[SOUND] D, A.
And now this is where we're gonna modulate
back to C.
So from the A we go to the F.
Four, the four chord of C, C, D, G.
And then we're back.
And then we play the A part again.
So that's the basis of this song.
It sort of circle fifths in C, and then
the B part modulates to E.
So, let's go over a little bit of the
It starts off with this.
It's a C note
and an A note, which you'd think wouldn't
be necessarily in a C major chord but,
it's like a root and a major six so
it gets kind of, that major six note gives
it sort of a jazzy sound.
There's the E, F
and then I do.
That's sort of a neat little trick is to
use the thumb.
It's almost like a rake.
Thumb going forward middle finger coming
back and muted.
So I'll use my palm to mute that.
And then into a little leg.
And then up to the D.
D and then the right hand here is
when I get to that B note I pull off
there's a lot of four.
Multi string arpeggios so I might go
double thumb on that one.
Now this is where it gets a little
So that's the hardest part of the song
right there is that modulation.
So you, if you go seventh fret, six, five.
The sixth fret.
On the second and third string.
And then that right there is really
So watch the right hand through that.
you're in E.
And this is pretty basic chord,
chords over E and B major.
And now we're headed to A.
And here's a little sort of diminished
lick in D that I do sometimes.
You're getting that G sharp in there.
So that's A.
And then to get, and then we go back to F.
So there's some appargiation.
Now that lick's
a little hard
I lead with my thumb to start that
So I go
thumb, middle, thumb on the second,
Just all are alternating
And then one last A part.
Double thumbing on that.
And then that last arpeggio,
actually ends with this finger, but
you can go, you can do a bunch
Bunch of thumbs in a row,
if you want, it just has to be fast.
And that's how it ends.
So there's kind of a whole lot to it, but
if you watch my right hand in this
analysis and slow it down, you'll be able
to get how to play,
using the tablature to guide you along,
and the backing tracks.
And you'll have a really neat swing tune,
this particular song has a lot of
It's got some diminish stuff, some jazz
this is a great one to really spend some
time on to
expand your repertoire, and expand your
