Chicago Shuffle

Verse 5 Breakdown - I, IV and V Chord

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

This week we're taking on the whole last verse. It's what I'd call a "riff" verse and simply put, aside from altering one note a half-step to make the chord changes, it's basically the same lick throughout the verse until we get to the V. There's a huge range of sounds and effects contained in the 3rd hole draw and in this lesson we focus a lot on working that hole and trying to zero in on some of the many possibilities for expression in that one little reed. Then I break down the V chord and the ending and hey, guess what? You've got a whole new song you can play.
