Hey Sonic Junction Friends -
Dennis Gruenling here with the breakdown for the second chorus of my study song “Trill Seeker.” This chorus involves some drawn out distorted blues notes, rhythmic chords, and of course some more trills. Make sure you are practicing your trills to be able to pull them off evenly, consistent, and with clean notes. For the sections involving the chord accents, really make sure you have a good grasp of the groove, so the chords add to the pulse of the song. You may want to practice the chord accents by themselves to make sure you have a full understanding of the timing.
