I Got It Bad > Vocal Melody and Comping

Hello Folks, This week we are working on the lead or melody guitar track. In our last lesson we learned the first chorus which is the song melody. This week we start off at the modulation into the vocal chorus. We modulate with a Cm7 to an F7 and on to Bb, the new key of the song. I teach some chord melody sections and riff in between the vocal in places. Try here to listen to and state the chords which make the "I got it bad section" pay attention to little chords on the "I got it bad" part. We go through the rest of the song here including the vocal section and tag.

Thanks and Enjoy!

Hey Steve, You sound great playing this. My only advice is try to relax it a bit more. An important part of this feel is the laid back time feel of it. but you are playing all the parts great. Good on ya! Duke

Hey Duke! Some nice progress on this, I think. Hope you like it, would love to hear what you think it and also about the arrangement. It's not incredibly original, but I think it works ok. Hope all is well with you. Regards, Bruce
