Bobby Caldwell’s “Open Your Eyes” is a joint that I’ve always enjoyed. Common and Dilla put their spin on it when they introduced us to “The Light” and it has since become a very well recognizable song, especially when the second verse comes in with “There are tiiiiiiimes…..”
The chord changes are beautiful and I have been working with the music for a few days now… even worked in a “hand separation” drill at the end of it where my left hand does something consistent and my right hand solos. I finally got the nerve up to record myself… I think it came out ok.
You think it came out okay?? Come on bruh! It's beautiful! But I understand comepletely; we're our own worst critics lol.
