LOTW – Rai Thistlethwayte Live Lick 1


The Pop-Piano Method

Hack the Piano is the essential guide & backbone to all my lessons. Get this bible of Pop-Piano, learn to understand the language of music and express yourself just like the pros, without sheets by chords, by ear, by heart.


This week’s lick is a tiny adaption on one from Rai Thistlethwayte’s live show at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music at the Roland V Grand Release.


In the original (1:26), Rai plays a “d” (as opposed to an e-flat) on the turn (d-flat, d, d-flat, b-flat), which makes the lick a bit more bluesy – but I figured I’d be cool to show that using pentatonics only can work very well too for such a lick.
