Well, since there's been such a positive response on the previous post, I figured I'd upload a little more! In the last post, I picked that 30 seconds because it had the least mistakes in it! Haha! In this first verse and chorus, there are a few mistakes you can hear. I kept missing that E6/9 chord! Oh well! I hope y'all dig this as well!
My favorite part is at the end of the chorus when it goes from the Gmaj7 to the Amaj7 back to the Bsus2! I'm a sucker for a b6-b7-1 progression!
And if you have no idea what I'm taking about, here's the description from the previous post:
Just spent the last 2 hours learning how to play "Back At One" by Brian McKnight.
I heard a version of it on YouTube where it's just him and a piano and the chord progression is just killer! I've always loved R&B chord voicings and progressions, but I wasn't around it much growing up, so it's not naturally in my playing. Or singing for that matter! The way Brian McKnight does those runs with his voice is so killer! I wanna work at being able to pull some R&B vocal runs off!
That's what this was. Stretching out of my comfort zone. Learning a song I've always loved, but never learned. So, here's the first, rough, scratch recording I did after 2 hours of figuring out the guitar chord voicings. Wanted to see if I even sounded remotely like I knew what I was doing! Haha!
Hope y'all dig it! This is my southern rock, Texas Blues, Oklahoma country boy first attempt at Brian McKnight's song, "Back At One." Oh! And if you wanna hear what it's SUPPOSED to sound like, go check out the" Brian McKnight 'Back At One' Live @ SiriusXM" on YouTube. Seriously. Go listen. It's awesome!
