Check out this guys shit! My daughter turned me on to this just now. Great stuff for everyone. Quite the Story Teller.
I do/have done that to a certain extent on most songs. Not quite as thoroughly as he's explaining it vocally, but a lot of that stuff is what runs through my head when I listen to tunes even. That's why I can't work or concentrate on something else when I listen to music. It's a big ol PITA actually. I think we all do it mentally to whatever extent our music knowledge and familiarity with the song allows.Geee ! Merely followed the guy... he speaks so fast !
Anyway, I got most of it !
Except for the sketches, does anyone use to analyse this way the musical structure and twists of a piece he is learning ?
If you took any new understanding of how a turnaround works in a certain context like the Blues, and how it fits into the overall structure of the song or progression, then you probably got a lot more out of it than you think. Just try to apply whatever concepts you got out of it to other songs and styles.In a matter of fact, I did analyse turn-arounds that way to understand how they worked while I was learning some good ol acoustic Blues. It was the first time I committed to such analysis... found it quite a hard work while handwriting on paper... not sure I took all I should have out of the execise, though.
