Watch the Special Chorus online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Jump Blues

A special chorus is a part of a song that is composed, where everybody plays a specific rhythm or solo riff. It is a very powerful effect to use. Even if it's just you, a drummer and a bass player you can pull this off.
Synchronize a rhythm pattern with them through a certain chain of chords or melody lines and dazzle the girls / guys.
Some of these special choruses are a so called "stop chorus", which means that the band stops playing - with an accent on beat 1- and leaves a space for a lick or chord riff.
If your band has horns, great! Let them answer the chord groove you play. Work with offbeat accents and make it sound tight.
