d'Angelo Sugah Daddy | Lick

In this tutorial I'll show you how to play, understand, use and re-use the lick (and main groove) from d'angelo's sugah daddy.

Hi Everybody! How you doin'?

This week I extracted a funky little lick from one of Pop-Piano's greatest: d'Angelo.

With hints from blues to bebop, this one is sure to groove your socks off. Some nice little tritone left hand voicings are thrown in as a bonus.

Have fun and let me know what you think!

Comments are appreciated 🙂

Have fun!

Cheers, Coen.
