This week's lesson found me at "80/20 Studios West", filming a quick video while bunking/hanging with my parents in Montana. (Yes, "white trash surfing", or riding the inner tube of a big rig tire down the river, is the truth. No, don't carry your car keys with you.)
Anyway, in search of something "quick and dirty" I could make for you guys, I remembered a Thomas Pridgen lick from one of the first Gospel Chops videos ever made, and luckily it dovetailed with something I'd been messing about...sorry - messing around...with (hanging out with too many Brits lately;) since shooting the Nick Smith Lesson two weeks ago.
"People have been playing that same lick since the '90s! I played that lick on the Jimmy Kimmel show with Keyshia Cole!" Thomas says, apparently urging viewers to move onto something else. As novice Gospel Chops aficionado, I had different things in mind.
If this lick's a cliche, I probably need to learn it.
Anyway, you're likely here for the transcriptions.
Make sure you enter your best email address on the next page, because that's where I'll email the transcription. (It's free, btw.) And as a "thankyou", I'll also send you three my most popular videos from the archive. If they don't help you, just unsubscribe! If they do, I'd love to hear about it!
Anyway, enjoy the lesson, and if you have any favorite Thomas Pridgen licks you'd like me to transcribe and/or break down, just leave a comment below!
