Buddy Bolden Blues Taught by Lasse Johansson
Buddy Bolden was a leader of what is considered to be the first Jazz band ever. He played his music in New Orleans even before the 1900’s. His Buddy Bolder Blues has been recorded by many, and in general, Martin is one them. Here is my version.
Here is the first section of Buddy Bolden Blues. Embracement similarities to—that have made it into the guitar player’s repertoire like Saint Louis, take it for instance, with the movement of these chords downwards together with, creating this effect and for Buddy Bolden Blues with some variations.
Once again, next time F comes there is a little base lick to A. This is a D7 chord and the shape of what song was a C7 chord for C7 fingering area anyway. That’s a G7 then it goes, what you should try here is to keep that F note ringing while you're on the C chord. This is the ending and that’s the first part of Buddy Bolden Blues.
Here is the second half of Buddy Bolden Blues. Let’s look into that again. You start like this, the C9, it comes a bend and release. This means you bend the note up to D# and then drop it down to D, okay. So, let’s play that first half again slowly.
And here come some chords, once again, and to end it, once again.
