Sloppin' and Slidin'

Fourth Verse Breakdown

Hey now! Back again with verse four of Sloppin’ and Slidin’ - In verse four we take a break from the theme of sliding between the first and fourth holes. We start out by announcing that departure with a little stabbing, sliding squeek on the six draw. Then we get into a riff based groove on the first three holes that’s a return to the push/pull, two draw/three blow comfort zone that I normally advocate a lot. On the resolving IV and I, we’re back to our sliding theme. Next week we’ll get to some of the slop I keep promising.
