After listening to rhythm & blues guitar, and swing piano, I came up with this little tune. It's short at the moment, but there is room for a fair bit of variation. Sorry about the camera angle, but the cam slipped just as I started recording.

Anyway, hope you enjoy!

@Worldfiddler - 

 

I LOVE IT! 

 

Sooo much interesting stuff happening in this piece! 

The double stops! 

I see WHY I need to learn double stops better. 
I'd be ecstatic if, for about 3 months, I could be disciplined/empowered to clear my head & daily life enough to totally focus on what you've just created here! 

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to your "12 Bar Shuffle"!

Thanks, ELCBK!

 

Glad you like it.

 

As time permits, I'll be doing a breakdown of those double stops.

@Worldfiddler -

That would be wonderful!  🤗

I've been getting more familiar with using the blues scale for adding variation to music, but this would be great motivation for me to do more than the occasional double stop or drone!
