Sonnyboy's Groove

Fourth Verse Breakdown

This verse starts out with some rhythmically articulated chord work and moves into more hand effect, note shaping. It's also got a pretty cool pause at about 1:02. Remember, space is part of the music too! When we get to the five chord change, we're back to working with that three draw whole step bend.

Keep working with it - You'll get it!

Hi Rick - A question about the vibrato (around 4:16 on the video): is it all in the throat

or does the jaw move too? Thanks for another great series of lessons!

If I weren't looking at it and seeing my jaw move, I'd say it's all throat, but, at least on that 3 draw whole step bend, my jaw is obviously working in tamdem with my throat. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
