Gypsy Woman > 2nd Verse

Hello Friends,

This week's lesson is on the second verse of Gypsy Woman. Instrumentally speaking, it's primarily the same as verse one. The lyrics move twice as fast on the one and quick four but you play the same. Then the Gypsy Woman told me part, is the same and you can look at this as the chorus starting on the four as it always goes back to that theme. The riffs in between the lines in the chorus (theme) section are really cool and it would be good to really get the feel of how I am playing them. Some riffs like this are not as easy as they seem to replicate with the real sound and feel of the original. We all have a tendency to play lines like these cleaner and straighter than the original. Therefore it's really important to get the feel right. Before drum machines and such, not everyone's sense of time was the same. There are pros and cons to the modern "perfect time" concept and in music like the blues, it's not always the important factor. The "feel" or feeling it produces is much more important. You would be surprised to know how many of your favorite records recorded before the 80s slowed down or speeded up in sections! I still say practicing with a metronome is good but when performing, the vibe you create is the most important element. Sorry about the sermon!

Enjoy the lesson, Duke

Hi Allen, Sounds good. You do that rolling feel on the D7 real good!

Duke  ~  I dug your sermon on time, and the way the blues stretches it out  -  tried some of that here, & made-up a 2nd verse ... no girls yet

The words aren't exact, I'll work on that.

This is fun. It took me awhile to learn that the singers get the girls. :)
