I Know You Rider - Harmonies

Postby Grateful Dad » Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:57 pm

I'm going to play this China Cat/IKYR this weekend with some buds, we have the structure down fairly well BUT there's the sticking point of the harmonies in IKYR.

Jerry seems to take the melody line beginning on the A melody note, from there it seems the harmony builds next on the D above middle C (Bobby's part?) and the F# above middle C (the Phil and later on Brent & Vince range).

Is there someone out there that can explain in musical notes where the melody and harmony lines go from there or post a video (wishful thinking on my part....) breaking down the parts?

We get great jams out of this song but the IKYR harmonies get muddied.

Any kind help is much appreciated!
