Licks & Riffs : Missy Elliot - Get Your Freak On

Report Error



Missy Elliot's Get Your Freak On uses the sound of an Indian Classical instrument called the Sitar. For anyone who doesn't know, it's like a guitar, but with a lot more strings. The percussion in the background of this track is also Indian (tablas).

The main background pattern is a 5 note phrase which is more percussive than melodic:

And the same for guitar tab:

Finally we've had a bit of fun and invented a "freaky piano" riff along similar lines. Notice how what drives this is the cross rhythms:

Missy Elliot
