The lesson this week is on the 3rd verse of Mr. Lee's Mambo". Although this 3rd verse is pretty simple, it does feature some small articulation challenges. It's also a really good example of something I addressed in last week's lesson - Last week I think I called it "the illusion of order". That means making (apparent) sense or "saying something" with your playing. Often making musical sense involves repetition, variations on that repetition and departure from that repetition featuring some element of surprise.
So, have fun, stay in the groove and keep the questions and comments coming.
