G bars 6-7 BOOM! TWO THREE FOUR | ONE TWO THREE BOOM |
C bars 8-9 BOOM TWO THREE FOUR | ONE TWO THREE BOOM ....|
a pair = 6 beats + two rests = two exact bars. So Robbens version does not Walk over the 4/4 time.
- The riff repeats a 3-beat pattern 4 times across 4/4 time. 4x3 = 12beats = 3 bars!!!
The effect is that the riff
shifts it's starting beat within the 4/4 measures.
1st Beat 2 of bar 1 2nd Beat 1 of bar 2 3rd Beat 4 of bar 2 4th Beat 3 of bar 3
Geography of Horrace Silver Version
IntroThe 12-bar riffs start on beat 2 of bar 1 so: 2-bar + 1 beat intro goes like this:
Robben Ford's Version
Similar 3-beat riff but This time, instead of playing 4 of these consecutively, he plays two and leaves 2 beats rest (drumbeat + stab organ chord) before the next 2. This puts all the riff pairs on the same start beat 2.
Turn around Diminished substitute chord for V7 - the last four bars 9-12 play an ascending diminished scale landing on the 5th and settling on the I major root. To land on the 5th , start the dim scale one semi-tone above the lower 5th (Flat 6th or sharpened 5th) , because the Dim scales stretch one semi-tone short of a full octave. This is a relatively modern Dim SUB for a V7 chord. Another is to start ON the 5th but after just 6 eight notes , hit an inversion of the I major triad. Eg Key = D - 5th a A A B C D Eb F# A D
