Donald “Duck” Dunn

Dunn played on one of Johnny Taylor’s biggest hits… you may have heard of “Who’s Making Love…”.

A typical device of the great session players (Dunn, Jamerson, Cogbill, etc) was to use both the flat 7th as well as the 6th in the groove, tweaking it until the harmony was not too harsh (the 7th is pretty strident) and not too bland (the 6th can have that quality).

This device works especially well when the groove has to move and be busy.
