Rick Estrin, back again - this time with verse four of "Half Steppin". In this lesson, we take a little break from actual half steppin' and start with that strategic, "switching gears" device that you get by beginning on the second beat. On the one, we're alternating a repeating, simple lick with some crisp, percussive chops. When we get to the IV, there's some bending and shaping, and a little more application of the two draw vs three blow, push/pull deal from last week's lesson. Then we're back to the one and trying to feel that groove as deep as possible.
