Hi Everyone -
This week we break apart the third chorus of my song “Trill Seeker.” Building upon what we did in the previous chorus, this chorus involves even more rhythmic accents and chording. Tackling this style of playing means you will have to have a solid grasp of the groove and rhythm for this song. I would recommend listening to the chorus several times in a row to make sure you are “one with the groove” and have the timing down, this way it will be much easier once you go to play it. I also will include several trills in a row at one point, so make sure you have developed your trill skills!
Dig in and enjoy!
