What are we shootin’ for :
In a band setting, every musician has a distinctive place.
Within a song this place can change: backup to solo, full chords, riffs, etc.
Leaving space is important, especially when playing accompaniment.
Hammering away bar chords on every beat is a no-no.
But you do want to make the harmony clear!
Imitating horn lines a horn section would play is a great way to play backup.
That’s what these examples are all about.
