Bo Dee's Bounce

4th Verse Breakdown

Ok, Sonic Junction - This week I'm back with verse 4 of this thing we're calling Bo Dee's Bounce. In verse 4 we'll be working mainly with bends that swell and swoop in volume and pitch, along with some strategically placed burrs or growls for added texture. This verse is mostly long, legato phrases, but the groove, the phrasing and the placement of the pitch graduation need to be felt deep in the rhythmic pocket - just as deep as you would feel them in a more percussive line. As always, have fun, feel that groove, and I'll see you next week!

I'm actually not seeing a backing track.  Could we get up on on the site Mike?
