Rap albums to listen to

So much of today’s new technologies tend to offer (at least in marketing speak) out-of-the-box solutions to musicians’ and students’ problems. Softwares and plugins, devices and networks, are all designed to minimize the rough edges around taking the time to learn things the hard way, practice them, and interact with things and people.

The bass blends well in this mix and grooves solidly throughout the whole song. But one recurring motif that sticks out, perhaps because of the space created by the choppy, Kinks-esque guitar riff, is the simple walk-up to the fifth (an E over the A chord) via the major third and perfect fourth. It happens after the first four chords (which, on their own, actually sound like a rewrite of “You Really Got Me”), and tucks nicely into place as the short D and A guitar chords follow it and carry the end of the measure into the G and C chords of bars 3 and 4. The pattern is repeated over these bars, and basically everywhere else in the song involving the main guitar riff, though East varies it almost every single time with masterful subtlety.
