Hey Sonic Junction - This week we've got the second lesson on this piece we're calling "Half Steppin". This lesson deals with verse two. In this lesson, we get a new opportunity to zero in on and refine some of the things we addressed last week. Once again, we've got the same chordal bed of groove that we used last week and some of the same quick "stabs" with the three draw - but there's also some variations. By referencing the first verse, I'm attempting to create the impression of "meaning" - maintaining thematic continuity while introducing minor differences. This way, we're building a song, rather than stringing together a random sounding patchwork of verses. Trying to describe it, I think I'm making it sound more complicated than it is!
Stay in the pocket and have fun!
