Hey Sonic Junction -
Rick Estrin here, and this week we're going to start breaking down the intro portion of this "Lockdown Shuffle". Once again, on the surface this sounds simple, but there're some valuable texture producing and groove enhancing elements that'll require some focused attention to detail. This week we'll be working on some things like dividing a flutter-tongue vamp into triplets, getting comfortable with some push/pull ghost notes, and zeroing in on some important bends on the second and third holes. All this stuff is designed to help achieve a better, fuller sound, and to put you deeper in the pocket.
Have fun, and I'll see you next week.
