This week I’ll be showing you Tony Rice’s intro to “The Likes of Me.” It’s classic Tony: tasty, tuneful, powerful, surprising, and syncopated. The real crux of this lesson can be found the slight syncopations that give this intro/solo so much flavor while not derailing the flow at all. It’s incredible how Tony does this.
Also, once you’ve learned the intro try playing it along with Tony. There is so much to be learned from these great masters beyond the notes. The touch, the timing, the drive, the grace and power. Once you’ve got the notes under your fingers listen to Tony play this, and emulate that!
