In my previous column, I demonstrated the unusual two-hand tapping technique that makes up the first section of the song, “Isolated Incidents,” from the latest Animals as Leaders album, Weightless. The section of the tune that follows features a transition to a heavily syncopated pedal-tone pattern with a single-note melody played above it. This month, I’d like to go over that single-note melody, as well as the way in which I harmonize it when it is repeated.
