This is a lead part that ties the vocal phrases together with the rhythm section and ties the rhythm section phrases together and adds drive to the song. It's in the E Major scale with some blue notes.
The other noteworthy component is that it's played on a guitar that is tuned down to B. Not only is the tuning different, but also the strings have a strange, muted sound that can be created accurately by using flat wound strings. This technique was used by jazz guitartists of the day even though you would find this used on occasion by rock and country guitarists as well. This is strange for the period in which it was recorded. We have replicated this sound using a baritone guitar with foam placed underneath the strings near the bridge. This doesn't effect the tuning and it keeps you from having to palm mute the strings constantly.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
