Our new lessons this week come from two Melodics featured artists Tall Black Guy and Mark de Clive-Lowe. While both lessons are technically different they both possess commonalities in regards to being incredibly inspiring.
Tall Black Guys lesson will teach you how to play his 2013 track ‘From Home To Work, And Back’ off his debut album 8 Miles To Moenart. This track as the title suggests delves into the day to day living for Tall Black Guy that involves going to work during the day and making music/watching NBA highlights in the evening . From a technical perspective this lesson will have you playing drums, bass and a very sultry riff with a harp guitar. If you can’t get enough of that harp guitar check out the actual song as well as the original sample. You will not be disappointed.
Mark de Clive-Lowe has gone a different route and has made a completely original lesson called ‘Broken Boogie’. This original piece has many different steps and starts you off with some drums and some cowbell… Yes Cowbell! While it may have taken myself a few attempts to master the cowbell it was a lot of fun to learn and definitely had me wanting more. Once you have mastered these elements there is a great synth pattern to learn that takes this lesson to another level both sonically and grade wise.
See you next Tuesday
