Hey kids! Uncle Ben here, back again for Weekend Wankshop 221! On today’s lesson, you’re gonna learn how to play Josie by Steely Dan, from their classic Aja record! I’m going to show you how to play the intro, verse and chorus chords, and bridge riff, all with chord notation on screen.
This is a great song to learn to expand your chord vocabulary, there’s so much cool stuff in here! Tons of that signature Mu Major chord that you’ve heard Rick Beato talk about. Definitely one of my favorites.
I won’t swear that these are the EXACT voicing Walter Brecker/ Larry Carlton played on the record! Its almost impossible to say for sure when you listen to the mix. But this will sound great when you play it, even if you don’t have a million piece band backing you up.
Playing my G&L Legacy with Bareknuckle Veneer Board pickups into my Kemper Profiler here. I made the backing track in Logic plus i used Superior Drummer 3, my LSL Balboa bass, and the Darkglass B7K plugin.
Thanks for watching! What other classic Steely Dan tunes do you want to learn?
