That breakthrough was facilitated by Jack Douglas In the studio he moved into the slot of the sixth member of the band. Aerosmith's third album includes some of their best-known songs, including "Walk This Way", "Sweet Emotion" and the rollicking title track.
The song proceeds with the main riff made famous by Perry and Brad Whitford on guitar with Tom Hamilton on an early s Fender Jazz bass. The song continues with rapid-fire lyrics by Steven Tyler. The song originated in December during a sound check when Aerosmith was opening for the Guess Who in Honolulu, Hawaii.
During the sound check, Perry was "fooling around with riffs and thinking about the Meters ", a group guitarist Jeff Beck had turned him on to. Loving "their riffy New Orleans funk , especially ' Cissy Strut ' and 'People Say'", he asked the drummer "to lay down something flat with a groove on the drums. But I didn't want the song to have a typical, boring 1, 4, 5 chord progression.
After playing the first riff in the key of C, I shifted to E before returning to C for the verse and chorus. By the end of the sound check, I had the basics of a song. When singer Steven Tyler heard Perry playing that riff he "ran out and sat behind the drums and [they] jammed.
They had written three or four songs for the album, having "to write the rest in the studio. We were working on that song and we took a break to go see the movie in Times Square We fell over ourselves because it was so funny in a recognizably Three Stooges mode. At the hotel that night, Tyler wrote lyrics for the song, but left them in the cab on the way to the studio next morning.
He says: "I must have been stoned. All the blood drained out of my face, but no one believed me. They thought I never got around to writing them. He wrote the lyrics on the wall at "the Record Plant's top floor and then down a few stairs of the back stairway. It was bassist Tom Hamilton who came up with the main lick on "Sweet Emotion". In during a band interview with Alan Di Perna of Guitar World the members discussed the evolution of the song, which owes a debt to the Jeff Beck composition "Rice Pudding" from the album Beck-Ola.
I wrote that line on bass, and I realized I should think of some guitar parts for it if I was ever going to get a chance to present it to the band. I didn't think I ever would Steven had the idea of taking that intro riff, which became the chorus bass line under the "sweet emotion" part, and transposing it into the key of E, and making it a really heavy Led Zeppelinesque thing.
Many Aerosmith fans believe that Tyler wrote all of the lyrics to "Sweet Emotion" about the tension and hatred between the band members and Joe Perry's wife. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.
