Mr. Stern
Audio CD Tracks Band 8 Play-along 21 (no guitar) This tune is a dedication to Mike Stern, who is equally exceptional at bebop and funk-fusion styles. It has a 16-bar form and a half-time swingfunk groove (Ive heard it called swunk). Its felt more in 2: that is, the half note gets the pulse. C minor is the overall sound. Start from there, and add anything you can in the way of scales and arpeggios to the chords, but try to keep it grooving. On the melody, strive for a blend with the sax, and you may notice that I occasionally throw in a chord voicing in the 8th measure, a G7#9. The rst 12 bars of the melody are not too difcult. The last bars are the workout. This is the Stern section, the stuff that Mike can re out with ease. For myself, this kind of line is difcult and takes much practice. Work on this section slowly until you can play with the recording. Meanwhile, groove out over the solo section. Hey, try it with some friends.
