Cover Song Madness

Welcome to my 2nd column at CHOPS FROM HELL!!!
There is nothing I love more than a good cover song. But why play the songs how they were recorded? You break your neck learning all these wacky licks, why don't you use them to confuse people...rearrange a cover song! The next licks come from my deranged version of a Britney Spears song called "(You Drive Me) Crazy". I arranged all of the keyboard parts into string skips to lay under the vocals in the bridge of the song. The files below are of a new take I did without the vocal parts so you can hear the lick clearly (check my website for the full version). Make sure you watch for what gets picked and tapped, that's what brings the flavor to the skips. Try this trick with your favorite bubblegum hit, the nighborhood kids will think there is a pop icon hiding in your house!
