Endings in G


#1

In this video Charlie Cushman plays an ending (2:10) I like. I’ve heard it before many times. I know the B part but what is that A part. Looks pretty basic but I thought be good to make sure with brighter minds than mine.

I also found another cool part here on this video. Go to about 1:58 to see it. Ben has done the B part before but I liked that A part enough I thought I’d edit my post and add it as well.

Thanks Ben! These look like so much fun and will be nice to add. I have only a few variations of shave and a hair cut. They were getting old. lol.

Thanks for breaking down how you would go into that ending. That is really helpful. Even though I know that those are the same notes my mind at this early stage doesn’t always compute that obvious information.

I watch Charlie Cushman videos like we might watch a well loved minister or read about our favorite theologian over and over again. I met him one time and he told me he had been playing for 50 years. I said I only have 48 and half more to go. Then we got a pic together because hes so short and I’m so very tall. Lol

Hi Jason

@BanjoBen has covered endings in several tutorials in his Bag O’ Licks tutorials in the beginner and intermediate sections which will greatly enhance your knowledge and playing skills.
