All right well Scott and
I are here to do Jeremy Reel, which we
talked about a little bit previously.
And this involves complicated string
Right, there we go.
Or alternatively if we have little pointy
fingers that can't
Spread across the strings we can go
Which is basically what,
Scott you're doing that right?
>> Mm-hm.
>> Yeah.
So that's one way that you can manipulate
tunes to just make them sound good is you
just change little details.
Oh, we worked up an arrangement which
quite a bit of going around and about.
And because the tune itself is a little
bit of a maze to get through
chordally we've decided we were gonna make
a long
solo section that just involved two or
three chords.
And you'll hear that, you'll hear how that
goes, so that's always a good
tactic if you've got a complicated tune
that you'd like to solo on.
You can always add a section in which you
just use a couple of the chords
from the tune and just run them for a very
long time, and
that gets into all of our how to play
along soloing just like that.
So hopefully some of this will be
instructive or at least entertaining.
So here we go with the Jeremy Wheel.
>> One, two, three.
One last thing to add.
When you're playing a very notey tune like
this remember to breathe.
It's really important.
>> [LAUGH] One, two, three, four.
