Here’s the second I’ve been learning of five Primus songs in my list to do by the end of August – Jerry was a Racecar Driver! One of Primus’ more popular songs. A nice and easy exercise in volume swells, and a crazy solo that jumps in and out of scale like it doesn’t care, in order to work with a crazy bassline.
I’ve always been a big fan of Larry Lalonde’s playing style and how it so cleverly accompanies Les Claypool’s challenging and unique basslines in most of Primus’ songs. I recently decided to learn to play five Primus songs in order to develop a greater appreciation for this style. The first of these is John the Fisherman. Not a difficult song, really, and fun to play. A great one to get started with!
This is also the first video with my beautiful new Ibanez RG-3120 guitar!
