What are we shootin’ for :
All the examples from the “Backup Solo” and “Chord to Chord” can be used in a so-called “Special Chorus”.
This is a part of a song that is composed, where everybody plays a specific rhythm or solo riff.
It is a very powerful effect to use.
Even if it’s just you, a drummer and a bass player you can pull this off.
Synchronize a rhythm pattern with them through a certain chain of chords or melody lines and dazzle the girls.
If your band has horns, great!
Let them answer the chord groove you play.
Work with offbeat accents and make it sound tight.
