Hey Sonic Junction - This week we're taking the first half of verse five. I split this verse into two parts so that we can pay a little closer attention to some of the details. Verse five begins by shifting gears and starting out on the second beat. It's a cool strategic device that we've used before. Using that shift to the second beat to break up the rhythm, is a good attention grabber and helps support that conversational element we're looking for. In just the first half of this verse we're employing a handful of the tools we've already used here at Sonic Junction. We've got trills, also known as warbles - We're working with the two draw/three blow, push/pull device - We've got some tongue flutters - We're doing a little crying on a bend - All great stuff! And this is only the first half of the verse!
