Hey, Sonic Junction -
This week, we're back with verse 7 of "Mr. Lee's Mambo". This verse starts out with some "breaks". I'm pretty sure they're called breaks because the flow of the music stops and starts again, but they could also be called "breaks" for the way they can (in the right spot) serve as a dramatic attention grabber that can "break" up any mounting monotony. And, very important - Always remember, even in the silent part of the breaks, the groove never stops. In this week's lesson, I also talk about a tip regarding finesse that came directly from the late, great Little Walter.
So have fun with it, and as always, any comments and questions are always welcome.
