Watch the Abra' online guitar lesson by Joe Deloro from Blues Rock Road Trip 2
Abra' is based on the groove of the Steve Miller tune, Abrcadabra. Released in the summer of 1982, it’s catchy pop sound is due in part to the magic of fusing an A minor reggae riff over a rock drum part and then tying it all together with laid back blues rock vocals. Steve Miller gained international success in the late 60’s with the Steve Miller Band when he was based in San Francisco. However, having started his career at an early age in Wisconsin, Texas, Chicago and New York, his sound is actually a mixed bag of many regions and styles. The chord progression to Abra' is Am, Dm, and E7.
