Hi - I'm Rick Estrin. I'll be Jerry Portnoy's guest on Sonic Junction for the next few weeks.
The song we're going to be working on is the Rice Miller (Sonny Boy Williamson II) piece "Getting Out Of Town". It's based on a European recording of that song from the mid-1960s and is very loosely interpreted by me. It's also similar to several of Sonny Boys' different solo, European versions of "Bye Bye Bird".
The main point of these lessons is to help you develop your internal groove and also to get you thinking about and employing more dynamics in your playing. It'll also give you a piece of music you can play and with practice, perform without a band.Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
