"Rise Up" - Pat Metheny (KIN 2014) - live performance




Performed and recorded during my junior recital at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Back in November, I had seen the Pat Metheny Unity Group as they were on tour in support of their 2014 album "Kin." I bought it at the show and it quickly became one of my favorite albums. In January I decided I want to try my ear at transcribing something from the album. The second track, "Rise Up," was so cool. Folk harmony and a heavy-strummed acoustic guitar mixed with a Fender rhoads sound and the awesome work of Antonio Sanchez on drums made this song so unique. The changing meter and heavy duple implications in a mostly 6/8 feel gave the song such a smooth groove.
