Greetings Premier Guitarists and welcome to Jeff Beasley’s Lethal Guitar! Thank you for logging on and tuning in. If you haven’t noticed there’s a very cool feature
on my friend Chris Duarte in this month's issue of PG. That being the case, Chris and I decided to collaborate on an awesome guitar lesson for you my faithful readers!
Chris Duarte is from Austin, Texas and was named “Best New Talent” in Guitar Player’s 1995 Reader's Poll, and finished fourth in the “Best Blues Guitarist” category behind Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and B.B. King. He performs primarily as a power trio, with Joel Powell on bass, and Chris Burroughs on drums. Chris recently recorded a new CD with Bluestone Company. Produced by Mike Varney, the album was recorded at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, California and is tentatively scheduled for a January 2009 release. There will be an 11 city tour of Japan in support of the release, including Osaka, Hiroshima, and Tokyo. So ladies and gentlemen without further ado, blues guitar god Chris Duarte…
Great licks! Chris exemplifies the true blues greats in this lesson filled with some of the best blues licks anywhere on planet earth. Notice that most of the licks are syncopated and require a bit of phrasing ability on the part of the player. This syncopation offers the listener a more characteristic statement from the soloist. Take these ideas and implement them into your own playing to spice up typical lines, and make them not so run of the mill. Also be sure to check Chris out at chrisduartegroupfans.org
. See you guys next month here in Lethal Guitar!
