What's New: Here We Go, Parts 1 and 2 (Studio Session, Day 2)

David Barrett Admin's picture

We're now on to the second day of recording. I move into the smaller isolation room and we start the day with all of my solo tunes. These two videos I record "Here We Go." This Tramp groove, based on Lowell Fulson’s song “Tramp,” has long been a favorite groove of mine. With a rhythm driven by 8th and 16th notes, it allows for fast playing and some very cool runs that traverse the entire range of the harmonica. I love the way William Clarke (check out “Pawn Shop Bound”), Junior Wells (“Messin’ with the Kid”) and Gary Smith (“Minor Mambo” on Blues Harp Meltdown) approach this groove—you’ll hear me quote some of their licks.
