Sonnyboy's Groove

Sixth Verse Breakdown

In this verse we start out with a real hip little timing device - "changing gears" or starting on the second beat. The verse then goes on to prominently feature some vocal-sounding "wah-wah" hand effects. In addition, the recurring riff on the V change gets a slightly different treatment in this verse. There's a lot here, but it's all valuable stuff that once you get it down, you'll be able to draw from it and apply these devices and techniques to your own ideas. 

Have fun with it!
