Final song thoughts of October

This week is what’s known as ‘personal development week’. I’m hoping to get a couple of songs down with some rough charts etc by the end of the week. I’ve stumbled across a song which I think I will learn and play with a band if possible. It seems like a lot of fun to play, displays elements of groove work and also some technical parts.

The track is by drummer/percussionist/vocalist – Sheila E, and it is a song called ‘Joy’. It’s from her 2007 album ‘Heaven’. As you can imagine from the title, the song is quite gospel orientated, but it contains elements of funk and jazz. The track isn’t anywhere on youtube, but here is a guy named Ramon Sampson (Meinl Cymbal artist & Guitar Center 2009 champ) playing a cover of it (Which is actually quite close to the original).
