Giovanni Plays Living Colour

Updated: Aug 23, 2020

Happy Birthday to Vernon Reid who turns 62 today! Reid is the founder of the rock band Living Colour, which happens to be one of Giovanni's all-time favorite bands.

So in tribute, Giovanni plays their Grammy Award winning song "Cult of Personality".

Reid's tasteful playing here is a great example of how to use arpeggios in a rock context to create a countermelody to the vocal line. Notice how although the guitar accompaniment is quite sophisticated, it complements the vocal melody rather than distracting from it.
