For me, it was initially about rock….John Bonham. But when I first discovered Steve Gadd, a whole new world opened up. The first solo of his that knocked me out was on Steely Dan’s “Aja,” and then I was hooked. I had to hear it all. Steve’s playing on Chick’s stuff was always great. Gadd’s solo from “Cappucino” (from the album “Friends”) is short and sweet. Just 16 bars, it is action packed and full of many great Gadd licks. Some of the patterns here are detailed in the “Seven Gadd Licks” post found elsewhere on this blog. Download the PDF by clicking on the following link: Steve Gadd Solo from Cappuccino
Check it out. It’s classic Gadd.
