Ke$ha – Blow

Emei – Love me Not


Bad Idea Right:


You are already well on your way with this song! Thank you for practicing ahead of rehearsal.

Dog Day’s are Over:

Here is a great tutorial.  This drummer doesn’t have a finger snap drum pad so he is using rims and tambourine on hihat to emulate that.  You will use the drum pad.  what I really want you to study is the chorus groove.  It’s very powerful and driving which we want as a strong contrast to the sparse verse.


Bad Idea Right?:

Review your harmony.  Pay special attention to your counter harmony in that section


Bad Idea Right?:

Remember the 4 note in your harmony is the same as the third…dont go up.  It’s “mi re do do”


Bad Idea Right?:

Listen to how much attitude and sass Olivia Rodrigo brings to the song you are taking lead on.  Really come at that song with force


Bad Idea Right?:

Make sure to your both hands – dont try to play all of the notes with one finger.  If you use both hands you can play faster and more accurately : )
