Sonnyboy's Groove


Fifth Verse Breakdown

This verse takes one riff or idea, through the first EIGHT bars. In the interest of "conversationalizing" the piece, those EIGHT bars contain little variations on the riff and a chord change, but essentially the verse is about continuity and building excitement. On the V, you get another shot at "owning" that third hole draw bend.
