Bo Dee's Bounce

6th and 7th Verse Breakdown

Rick Estrin here with lesson 6 in the Bo Dee's Bounce series. This week's lesson starts out briefly addressing how to approach accompaniment. After that I get into braking down split chords, warbles (or trills), and I even throw in a little advice on the use of space. And as always, keep it in the pocket! (rhythmically speaking) Have fun and I'll see you next week.

Yeh, while I still spend a lot of time trying to really master basic techniques, I'm learning a lot from you about swinging with style and pizzaz. You da man.

Two things I particularly love: The 3-hole draw, "slightly bent" with vibrato.  That's just such a sweet sound and way to end the phrase hanging to set up the V change.  And then the second last note.  You kind of slide into the 4-hole draw bend to set up the blast on the 4-hole natural.  Ba-dat-dowww!  So cool.

I'm glad you're diggin' the piece, Bill. With guys like yourself, who already know how to play, my hope for these lessons is that they can help your heighten your awareness of some of the little things - things that can make a big difference in the overall effect
