This week, we are working on the first solo chorus for Glide On. I start out by playing Bill Jennings first four bars. It is so perfect a start that I never think of playing anything different because it just sets the vibe up so good! You can't help but come up with something cool to follow those first four bars. We then learn more Jennings inspired ideas ending with more typical blues riffs in Bill's style. This isn't rocket science but it grooves like mad and suggests a rhythmically cool and harmonically hip cat.
This is great stuff and we are going to have lots of fun with it.
