  • Hi all!

    Welcome to my new lesson. This time I wrote a tune inspired by R'n'B music.

    "The term rhythm and blues has undergone a number of shifts in meaning. In the early 1950s it was frequently applied to blues records. Starting in the mid-1950s, after this style of music contributed to the development of rock and roll, the term "R&B" became used to refer to music styles that developed from and incorporated electric blues, as well as gospel and soul music. By the 1970s, rhythm and blues was used as a blanket term for soul and funk. In the 1980s, a newer style of R&B developed, becoming known as "Contemporary R&B". It combines elements of rhythm and blues, soul, funk, pop, hip hop and dance. Popular R&B vocalists towards the early twenty first century include Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey." - Wikipedia

    Although I'm not a big fun of a newer style of R&B I like its groovy rhythm and vibe. So, mixing the R'n'B rhythm and crunchy/warm sound of stratocaster can give quite interesting results.
