The "call and response" concept has played a crucial role in all styles of American music. The idea revolves around playing a phrase that leaves you wanting it to resolve, and then finishing it off with another phrase that completes it. This is much like a question and answer session that can occur in any casual conversation. In music, this idea works well when played solo or with another instrument. Let's jam in the key of B, working with this idea to create a "call and response" jam session of our own.
