Dangerpuss: "These Boots Are Made for Knockin'"

Angel's Gate Lighthouse

Another song from Dangerpuss:

Duane gives a lesson on jazzy noodling.

The form and tonality here are nothing new: sixteen bars in Dm Dorian mode, up a half-step to Ebm for eight bars, and then back to Dm for eight bars. Miles Davis used it on “So What” and Coltrane used it for “Impressions.” So, you could say this is my contribution to the canon of American jazz giants. You could say that, and then your friends would laugh at you, and it would serve you right. Dude, seriously, stop saying stuff like that. You’re embarrassing both of us.
