I am having a little trouble with a song that my band has come up with. It's always a little tricky because we have no percussionist and we keep steady rhythm with a foot bass drum and tambourine with a steady driving 8th note beat. However I am having a little trouble with a new song of ours. The song is in the key of Am and the chord progression is Am G D for the verse and E D C D for the chorus The tempo is relatively fast and steady throughout the whole song I have just been playing 16th notes on the root however I would like to spice up the line a little with approach notes but no matter what I play it doesn't seem to be fitting for the transition between the chords. Would anybody be able to share a little advice that might steer me in the right direction??
