Sonnyboy's Groove

7th Verse Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Rick's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Rick:     

This is the last verse of "Sonnyboy's Groove" and we're cappin' off the song with what I would call a riff verse - repeating (with one small variation) the same riff through the first 8 bars. It's a little different in that the meat of the verse is the rhythmic chording with backing support from some single notes. This verse also starts on that 2nd beat that we introduced a couple weeks ago.

I know you're gonna have fun when you put this piece all together! Hopefully I'll see you again!
