So you're gonna find yourself,
on many occasions, where it's you and the
drummer and it's jam time.
And pick a key, any key, pick a style, any
But what I like to do, is mix it up a
So, you noticed I started, just with a
little light picking.
And hey, there's that nail sound,
we talked about, earlier.
I grow my nails, so I can kinda use it as
a pick cuz.
Nothing too much funkier,
than when you really get a good pick
So when I hear the drummer, jamming like
And that's JR, John Robinson, by the way,
in the background.
It gives me a chance to just.
I don't have to start in with full guns
blazing, but just a little-
Kind of an upbeat.
Sort of almost, half reggae type feel.
So again, make it your own and then, a

Another way to do the trill.
when you're jamming, you know, you just
wanna have as much [SOUND] kind of grease
and fun so I do a little vibrato on that
That's always fun, just a little trill.
And then, I like slipping and sliding
around the bass to just-

drummer or your favorite drummer.
And start playing along and see what you
can come up with.
