The verse we'll be working with this week starts out with a melodic figure adapted from a Louis Myers guitar lick. It has a slick little transitional lick into the IV chord before it returns to some darker, more ominous-sounding stuff. If you pay close attention to the timing and phrasing of that transitional lick and execute it just right, it'll land you right on the IV and make perfect, symmetrical sense - AKA it works!!!
