Scaled Down

Sixth Chorus Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Dennis's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Dennis:      

Hello there, fine people of Sonic Junction! We are now going to tackle the 6th chorus of my “Scaled Down” piece and we get away a little bit from the riff-based ideas in this chorus. You will be utilizing more scoops, distorted notes, and even an octave in this chorus. It’s always a good idea to take these longer runs and break them down into smaller pieces to be sure you get them down correctly, so take advantage of the different speeds to study with here. This is still only blues scale notes of course, but try to stay focused on that now that we pick up the speed and fluidity of our patterns in this section.

If you take it in bite-sized pieces, it’s a piece of cake, haha!!
