I got asked a bunch about the 7/8 snippet tagged on the end of my vid a couple of days ago so here's a little more with the music. (Headphones are always better 🎧👌🏼)
This is an original piece that never made it past the demo stage called 'Under These Stars' by the New Cal. A little back story....
This is the first song I was given as a demo to learn by my bro @timonnbmartin back in 06' to see if I was up for the vision of a new band he was forming.
Back then I didn't know Timon. At the time I was playing in my Tool Tribute and was training up a new guitarist, another legend friend Mike (@_littlevillage_). Timon and Mike were bros and he would come help him with some of those sweet sweet Adam Jones riffs he was learning. I met Timon, he seemed legit, he was down with my mad beats 😂, so he slipped me a demo of this tune, and the rest was history!
Why am I playing this as part of my #SDPS2017 performance next month? Because for me it highlights 3 things very important to me -
1. Pocket! It's all about the pocket! It always is for me and always will be. Pocket pocket pocket! 🚶🏽
2. Playing in a way where you make the odd numbers (7/8) FEEL even. So it's comfortable to play, listen to, and groove on. 👊🏻
3. You can chop over a nice tune and it's ok! I don't in this part in particular but I really open up a little later in it. 😎🥊
These things I value. Pocket, clever writing, chops.
Anywho, that's that, now, time for another coffee and to hit that's rower 🚣🏻♀️ and those weights 🏋🏻
