Is there a word or terminoloty to describe the guitar beat or pattern in Boxed Up? I am hoping to reference it to guitar players.
Dennis, Thanks for a great lesson. Question: Is there a musical term to describe the guitar work here (which is excellent) so I can more easily explain it to ask my guitarist?
Thanks. Joe in White Plains, NY
Hi Joe, this is referred to usually as an ascending "box" pattern (hence the title ofthe tune). Some will refer to it is a Box Shuffle (going up). Thanks!
I really enjoyed the performance. I look forward to hearing Dennis' commentary, ecpecially 6:35 to 6:40. Thanks. Joe
Hi Joe - Thanks! Breakdown and commentary coming soon, and I'm more than happy to answer questions about the performance. Glad you dig it!
The 1978 recording is tremendous! The band is very tight and of course the harp work is out of this world. really enjoyed it. Any idea what harp you were playing with?
Jerry, I'm a relative new comer to this site and have really enjoyed your lessons over the past two months. Thanks!
Since you asked about songs we'd like to have you to break down, I'd love to have you break down LW's "Off the wall". I know its another instrumental but its also another classic. On my iTunes version of the song, from 2.25 on is particularrly hard to break down.
Never mind. I got it. Thanks anyway.
Anyone else having trouble getting the video to run past the Clapton concert? I can't seem to get the lesson to play.
What mic and speakers are you using here?
I'm playing through an Astatic JT-30 mic and a small one speaker Fender amp (don't remember what model).
Thanks Mike. That helps a lot. Joe
I see that he is playing a harp in the Key of E. But my E harp sounds much higher. What kind of harp is Jerry using?
Hi Joe --- Rick is playing an A Harmonica in the Key of E. He's playing cross-harp. The song is in the Key of E --- but the harmonica being used in an A Harmonica.
Hope that helps and enjoy Rick!
Mike is correct. From now on, I'll try to remember to specify the position.
