Oooooooooh shit it's here.
"The Lick", from Justin Tyson's solo on 7 Ways from the Blue Whale video, is without question the most requested transcription this year. I shouldn't be surprised - I've sought out and catered to every Mark Guiliana and Gospel Chops fanatic on the internet.
Anyway, here's my transcription and deconstruction of Justin's lick, a theme to which he returns throughout the solo. I'll do more Justin lessons soon, during which I'll delve further into the "rhythmic brain" behind some of these idioms. For this first lesson, though, I wanted to crash course you on the basics of gospel orchestration, from the standpoint of how the fuck would someone even come up with that?!?
