Have him play along with the version you plan to do (on his own time), until he gets it down. At the next band rehearsal, have the whole band play along with that version until you all lock it in, then break away from playing along. Lock Bolt and Key!
it goes from 4/4 to a 6/8 blip (if I remember right). but again that is useless if he doesn't know the changes and starts and stops. We changed drummers and this was also an issue getting the band back on track quickly. He had a week to get it right.... He wanted the mapped out music chart etc... but it didn't come together until we decided on a version to memorize and play along with. Actually we used Playin' Dead's version on youtube. Clear sound, great tempo and easy to see/hear what everyone is doing. Good Luck! That's one of the songs that separates the chickens from the roosters!
Hay I could be wrong but their is a bar of 5/4 @ last bar or fm slip lick 4:44, then a bar of 4/4 f#m, then a bar of 6/4 @gm, 4:49 then back to good ol 4/4 until after jam @ the am slip lick, this all so has some 6/4 that is @ the frist part of the slip lick and the dim. arpeggios. so we have half of the slip lick =2, dim arpeggio =4, all together = 6. 6:34. any thoughts or comments please. peace from upstate NY music mike ; - ]
