Hey, Rick Estrin, back here at Sonic Junction with the first lesson of this Crawlin' Kingsnake. This week I'm gonna help get you prepared for the meat of the song by showing you a couple of the recurring chordal and rhythmic devices that keep coming up in various ways throughout the song. There'll be tongue slapping, some "dirty" or distorted notes, and some probably new, breathing and rhythmic patterns. This will probably turn out to be the most important lesson in the series because we'll be using these patterns and devices throughout the song.
So relax, have fun and feel that groove!
