Starting with the groove, we took a track from our last recording which was a rhythm that Bernard and I played together. We then doubled the track to thicken up the groove. Why stop there? We layered the same track a third time underneath but playing it backward. For a little icing on the cake, we added some phasing bewteen the parts.
We had our groove. We open the tune with that part for a few bars.
We also heard the Hey Bulldog riff broken up at first with the grooove in between phrases.
It was a bit of a challenge to get the melody to have it’s own flavor. Imitating the human voice, especially Lennon and McCartney’s wasn’t easy but Bruce and Klem nailed the phrasing straight away. Add a little screaming B3 from Sonny and you’re good to go.
I really like the Cold Turkey chords at the end…over a bed of Bernard Purdie funkiness.
Voila! Hey Bulldog (aka Turkey Dawg) Listen here! JAMBA’s OFF WHITE ALBUM
