ISAIAH SHARKEY STUDY PIECE

-

[Bars 1-4] These bars feature a rhythmical introducti­on based around a Gm7 chord before hitting a D7#9 at the end of bar 4. This idea is inspired by Isaiah Sharkey’s work with Grammy winning singer-songwriter, D’Angelo.

[Bars 5 -8] This section kicks off the chord progressio­n for the piece, a I-VI-V-I in the key of Gm. The use of octaves adds a funky rhythm line while also bringing in some melodic content, as often heard in Sharkey’s work.
