Hey everyone!! At my Music School in SoCal USA working on a bridge for one of my songs.
It's a blend of Blues/Rock Jazz and Funk. The changes are:
B-7/E B-7 Cadd9
I love blending Funk with everything, but my style is somewhat all over the place :-)
My early guitar tuition came from my cousin who only played Heavy Metal - there was a lot of Judas Priest and Scorpions if I remember correctly.
Before I began playing guitar, though, I listened to a lot of Stax, Motown, and James Brown.
So, needless to say, I ended up mixing all of that together.
Later, other influences were added like horn players. I mentioned in a previous post how much I love horn players - their phrasing is different than most guitarists, and I'm really drawn to that. Here are some horn players to check out that were pretty inspiring to me:
- Miles Davis
- John Coltrane
- Eric Dolphy
- Rahsaan Roland Kirk
I mentioned the guitarists who influenced me before as well, I keep getting new followers, so bear with me: 😊
- Roger Troutman
- Jimi Hendrix
- Albert King
- Scott Henderson
- Jason Becker
In addition to them, I also like Jef Lee Johnson, Stevie Salas, Linc Chamberland, Yngwie Malmsteen, Charlie Singleton and Charlie Hunter.
I also get a lot of inspiration from drummers like:
- Dennis Chambers
- Lenny White
Whether you are in the creative arts or not, you usually take the best bits from your heroes/mentors and try to carry it higher - to another point.
I believe that's what we all strive for.
"Carring the Torch" we call it
Thanks for watching!!! 😊
