A great video series: “What Makes This Song Great?”

I love it when someone deconstructs a song in a way that explains why it stands above others. This is exactly what Rick Beato does with his video series, “What Makes This Song Great?” Here’s a sample. (Thanks to Walter for the tip.)

One thought on “A great video series: “What Makes This Song Great?”

  • Even though I don’t know how to read music, I absolutely love Rick Beato’s videos, and have become a big fan. He explains things in a very clear, easy to understand way, and on top of that he’s an outstanding musician himself. Anyone who can play a Larry Carlton solo note for note gets a big bow from me!
