Watch the The Sophisticate: Verse online guitar lesson by Adam Levy from 50 Low-Down Rhythms You MUST Know

The Sophisticate-verse loop File name: xx This is another Meters-inspired lick that showcases the idiosyncratic playing of guitarist Leo Nocentelli. On beat two, we strike a G minor triad - the upper part of a C9 chord. The next moves - at the end of bar 1 and beginning of bar 2 - have a more bluesy/minor feel, and then the final line is based on a C major pentatonic run.
