Superstition Pt.2


Finally it's time for the 2nd part of my Superstition by Stevie Wonder lesson.

Today i'll go over the pre-chorus. This part of the song is mostly played by a brass section in the original recording, but when my band plays it the bassist and I try our best to cover it.

  Here's the tab and a video of me playing it.

The video shows me playing through the pre-chorus 4 times, twice at about the speed my band normally plays it and twice at a slower speed.

I think the most difficult part of this section is the small 3-5-7 accending run in the first bar, as per normal I use strick alternate picking. If you're having trouble getting it up to speed it may make easier if you slide from the 5th to the 7th.

This pre-chorus is repeasted 4 times after the verse and before the chorus.

Don't worry if it looks a little hard, once you actually start playing it you'll see it's a pretty simple pattern.

Hopefully some time soon i'll be able to upload a lesson on the 3rd and final part of the song, the chorus.
