Memphis Grind > Head Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Duke's most popular lessons with re-mastered video, new sheet music and updated loop points. From Duke:

In my first lesson we learn the head of my composition "Do the Memphis Grind" which employs twangy low string swamp groove melody harmonized to give it a Memphis swamp vibe. I discuss the picking technique to get a tele snap on any guitar, country style bends with alternating funky rhythm, double stops and more.

Looking forward to hearing your comments.

Argh, those tritones down low had me stumped. Thanks Duke, sorted. Just curious: do you remember what you used for that on the album?
