Ex­AM­plE6 fi­naL jam

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: R&b -

This fi­nal jam is played at a fairly bright tempo (150 bpm) so it’s im­por­tant to make sure that you lis­ten to the drums on the back­ing track to avoid push­ing the beat; all of the rhythm and solo sec­tions need to be ‘in the pocket’ and groov­ing to achieve au­then­tic re­sults. Chuck Berry-style licks are a strong fea­ture of this solo, es­pe­cially in bars 33-36 where a re­peated ‘bend to fret­ted note’ phrase is used to cre­ate polyrhyth­mic syn­co­pa­tion.
