David Bowie's Let's Dance.
We rocked that one for the first time on stage the other day at a big Christmas gig.
Very fun song to play live, especially when people are dancing and enjoying the groove.
The chords are a little tricky, but once you get used to them, it gets easier and easier.
Nile Rodgers crafted those chords for Bowie while producing the album.
David's original treatment was in some fairly standard B cowboy chords, and Nile didn't think that the song had much punch.
The finished product was much better than the original demo!
This morning I was working on improving my ability to play Stevie Ray Vaughn's signature lead licks from the radio version of Let's Dance.
I'm slowly getting there.
