Sonnyboy's Groove

5th Verse Breakdown

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

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!
