Totally Guitars Weekly Update December 31, 2022
December 31, 2022
So it is New Year’s Eve and dark and storming here in Northern California (please excuse the mood lighting). This week I started revisiting some of Dan Hicks catchy swing tunes, which will probably be some of the upcoming lessons. It also gave me a chance to talk about an unusual scale to solo over one of the progressions in a song of his.
I started the Update with a little bit of a tune I have been working on for longer than I should admit, and it is getting close enough for me to think about putting more time in on. It is Bethena by Scott Joplin. Another 20 years and I should have it!
I am excited about the changes at TG in 2022 and really looking forward to fixing a few glitches now that wheels are turning in that direction.
I hope you enjoy a re-harmonized look at a classic Holiday tune. I ended the video with Auld Lang Syne and Black Orpheus, although a mystery tune from TV Land snuck in at the end.
Happy New Year,
