DOES THIS SOUND RIGHT TO YOU?!

So! I've been learning Tower of Power's "Squib Cakes" note for note the last few weeks using David Garibaldi's Off The Record book. I'm currently half way through the 7min+ beast.

Now, before tackling the next half, I'm going through certain sections / fills / grooves and refining them by ear as Garibaldi's transcriptions aren't always 100% accurate, as far as I can tell.

With that in mind, here’s the fill that happens at 02:36 in the song. This same theme happens a few bars later, which Garibaldi expands on over 4 bars. I’ll transcribe too when I've figured it out.

The big questions is: does it sound right to you?


I may have posted this before, but if you're interested, I describe my approach to learning stuff by ear here:
