Matching Music with Tone and Emotion

Just a quick post whilst I’m listening to music with my Dad on a long car journey.

It’s important to match riffs and solos to the emotion of the song and lyrics. There’s no point in having a heavy, ripping solo during a happy love song.

This sounds oh so simple, but it’s a mistake that is often made. For example, in every modern blues harmonica song ever written. I’m looking at you Paul Lamb. Be honest mate, you ain’t never had the blues, have you?

Check out a Paul Lamb and The King Snakes Classic

Or maybe this one sums up how we all feel!
