Watch Snarky Puppy Guitarist Mark Lettieri’s ‘Green Green Yellow Blue’ – Baritone Funk Kids Toys Edition
Veteran guitarist/composer/producer Mark Lettieri is well known for his guitar work with Snarky Puppy, among the many musical endeavors he is involved. As a session player he has worked with 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Keyshia Cole, Xzibit, and more. Beyond touring with Snarky Puppy, he has spent time on the road with other major touring acts including Erykah Badu.
Last week, Lettieri released a video of his playful composition, “Green Green Yellow Blue” which is anchored around a riff played on a talking children’s toy piano. The guitar player’s enveloping tone drops over the riff like a bomb, highlighted by a hip hop-esque backing synth phrase. Overall, “Green Green Yellow Blue” is a playful exploration of sound and creativity that is worth a listen, as is Lettieri’s whole catalog.
