Goofin’ Off sorta “reminisces” about a certain Top 40 tune from the ’70s as it kinda quotes the melody and even the chord changes at first. Then it goofs off in a different direction and takes you someplace else, new and different from where you were expecting to go.
179 written measures, ♩ = 100, level of difficulty is intermediate to advanced (due to the challenging nature of the chords). The solo changes require more than a glancing knowledge of chords and chord movement to negotiate convincingly during improvisations. Wally wrote a beautiful chorus-long soli for this tune which really shows off the horn section.
Written with solo space for guitar and EVI (which can also be played on a synthesizer).
