Top Three Licks In The Piece
Lick 1: Bars 19-21 Quarter-note triplets
This rhythmic subdivision may be a new feel to you. The crotchet (quarter-note) triplet is very effective and is naturally syncopated against the pulse. Take some time to get the sound in your head and give it a whirl for your own solos.
Lick 2: Bar 47 Large interval phrase
The flashy phrase in bar 47 is really worth learning as it is both impressive and sophisticated. But take it slowly at first due to the large intervals that might be unfamiliar to you – these are, of course, a Brett Garsed trademark.
Lick 3: Bar 67 Finger-twisting finishing lick
The final phrase from bar 67 is played free time against a held chord. This is another finger twister, which bucks convention and uses the legato technique to the full. The final note is played with a slap of the hand.
