    Default Tiny Moore Tuesday

    Howdy friends! It looks like I'll be doing these for the long haul, so thought I'd just make a dedicated thread for all the Tiny Moore Tuesday posts.

    This week I took a stab at a great solo from "Swing That Music," recorded at the 1986 Ashokan Western and Swing Week, uploaded to YouTube by Roger Weiss.

    Here is a link to my take on it:

    Thanks for watching and let me know what solos you'd like to see featured next!

    I forgot to post last week's stab at a real cool break Tiny plays on "Time Changes Everything" at the 1986 Ashokan Western and Swing Week. Thanks to Roger Weiss for posting the original performance on YouTube!

    Hey folks! This week I put together a video of Tiny's interpretation of the melody on the tune "Stumbling."



    If you haven't seen the original footage this was taken from, be sure to check it out:



    Next week I'll be featuring the two-chorus break that Tiny plays after the head, so stay tuned!

    Howdy mandolin fans! This week's Tiny Moore Tuesday is part 2 of last week's intro to "Stumbling." Last week's video is a great place to start if you're a beginner in the Tiny Moore style, whereas this week is a more advanced example of his hot swing solo style. As always, check out btlmusicnotes.com/learn for the free tab/sheet music and thanks for watching!

    Big thanks, Hayes. We try to play a version of this as a lead -in medley to "Lady Be Good" or other swing tunes in G!

    Thanks for the request Norman Plankey!

    This is definitely one of my favorite Bob Wills cuts, super early in Tiny's tenure with the band. He and Jr. tear it up! Next week I'll have that solo ready for you folks.

    Hope you enjoy the videos and feel free to let me know what else you would like to see!

    Hayes - can't wait to see how you delve into this one! Great tune for intro into jazz blues. "Simple" head and chord progression that opens up tons of avenues for creativity.

    Thanks and you said it John - if you can play inside the blues progression, that unlocks a whole world of possibilities! Next week we'll focus on comping and soloing the week after.

    Part Two of our study on C Jam Blues is now live! This week features some really cool double stops that Tiny often used to accompany vocalists/soloists, along with some cool voicings built on top of these double stops.



    Thanks for watching!

    Awesome, so glad to hear that Joey!

    I'm finishing the editing on the next video right now. We'll be looking at how to take some small bits of Tiny's vocabulary to build a solo on C Jam Blues, so check back tomorrow!

    Howdy gang! As promised, Part 3 of our look at C Jam Blues. The concepts presented here are designed to help us mere mortals take some of Tiny's vocab and build a progressive, personalized solo over a standard jazz form.



    Thanks for watching and see you next week!

    Great video, Hayes, but wouldn't notation be more useful than tablature? I think that anyone really interested in and capable of learning his style will be reading notation, don't you? With tablature, there's an extra step in trying to figure out what he's doing over a chord, etc... You know what I mean?

    I appreciate the videos a lot, just a comment.

    Has anyone else heard the Glenn Campbell taught himself to play guitar by learning Tiny Moore solos?

    Hey there lowtone2! First off, YES I have totally heard that Glenn Campbell used to bust his knuckles on guitar trying to learn all of Tiny's lines. Probably why Glenn was such a monster...

    Second, thanks for the comment and the kind words about the videos. You raise a VERY good issue that others have messaged me about before, and this is something I really grappled with heavily when I started making these videos.

    I forgot to include the link this time, but I do always include both standard notation and TAB in the corresponding PDF's so that viewers have the choice to learn the way that suits them best. My apologies, but you can download the PDFs at www.btlmusicnotes.com/learn if you want to take a look at the notation.

    Ultimately, I chose to include the TAB on the videos because 1) I do offer the PDFs for more advanced cats such as yourself and 2) I felt like tablature on the screen could decrease the number of barriers to any YouTube viewers who were in the "advanced beginner" category that I might be able to bring to the dark side of swing mandolin


    All of that being said, just because I have reasons doesn't necessarily make my choices good haha. I think it could be fun to include notation on the next one!

    Hey gang! This week I'm using one of Tiny's go-to melodic cells to give us another option for crafting a solo over a 12 bar blues.
