First things first: grab your transcription here.
This week’s lesson manages to run afoul of two things-at-once:
It’s something I’m practicing already, rather than a slick transcription of someone else’s playing.
Buuuut I still managed to pirate somebody else’s tune, and get a copyright strike on YouTube.
(If anyone’s interested, I’ll be selling bootlegged copies of Invisible Cinema out of the back of a pickup later. KIDDING.)
All the same, I think you should check it out, and here’s why:
It extends on a concept I debuted last month with the “bet you can’t play this” beat: straight 8ths on the hats, with an implied 16th-note phrase shift.
The point is not, I promise you, to teach you to get fired from gigs. (Though that will be the subject of an upcoming lesson.)
The point is that once you have the skillset in that lesson, things like the exercises in this week’s lesson will be child’s play.
Ok, so why should you care?
If Eric’s beat isn’t enough for you, I humbly submit:
Need I go on?
Get your straight-8th hat stuff going.
Get your life.
