This week we are finishing up "Why Don't You Do Right". The lesson consists of learning a new intro that I use for the recording. Then I demonstrate many examples of types of things that work around the vocal. Half step arpeggios, minor 6 and 9s, fast repeated blue notes and more to spice up the vocal. We also talk about not getting in the way off the vocal or stepping on it. One thing is to roll the tone back so you have a soft dark sound that is in a totally different frequency range than the voice.
I really can't wait to hear many of you play this one. You're going to have a great track to play with this time so I want to hear all of you out there do a recording of it.
Come on now, don't be shy!
