Johnny I have been working to establish a (what I would call ) a studder step note which is a transition between 2 notes or even running up a few notes (did a dit- did a dit -did a dit) kind of thing. For me it usually happens by accident when I am messing around and I am not sure how to make it happen intentionally on a regular bases. one example of it is Boots R doing King of the Road around the 50 second mark of the song I am not sure you would have the same version but maybe I could email a sample. Anyway I would like to figure this thing out and make it an exersize if you can help me with figuring it out. ThanksMarch 11, 2013 at 5:26 pm #10788
I just looked for it on youtube and only found a live version (man he plays it well)
so you’ll have to send me a link or mp3 for me to give a listen to what you mean.March 12, 2013 at 10:16 am #10791
will do I will try and find a couple examples for you.March 17, 2013 at 11:57 am #10798Alan CostinParticipant
Hi RandyVan and Johnny, if you mean this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub72eylahJg at 16 and 27 seconds then I’m having the same problem. I sometimes get it by accident but can’t get it to happen when I want it to.March 17, 2013 at 12:25 pm #10799
No Big Al, the Boots example, which I was finally able to hear is a very quick tonging technique (maybe Randy can post the example again)
Fast tonguing is difficult to do accurately but can be done by just starting slow and increasing your speed.
The Jr Walker example you posted is not this at all, he’s just going back and forth using mainly the notes of the chord, which is cool as well.March 18, 2013 at 2:14 pm #10801
Johnny I would be happy to post the example.
Its fast and I really have tried to slow it down and get it so it will take some time. Johnny I would love it if you could show us your version of doing this and maybe an accending scale or note pattern to practice with.March 18, 2013 at 9:05 pm #10804
Oh man, nothing I would like more than record lessons by request but I’ve usually got several projects going all at once and so I don’t even have the time it takes to do that one, right now anyways…
I can just say that to get that effect it’s practicing your tonguing – think short ta, ta, ta, ta etc
