Rhythmic Improvisation exercises with Triad Pairs (Maiden Voyage)
Note. If you wish to purchase this with a credit card please proceed to JazzDuets parallel site here: https://gum.co/sJyFE
Rhythmic variety is a crucial but often neglected aspect of improvisational studies. In this class we take a one bar rhythm and displace it by an eighth note. The results are amazing!
We then practice this firstly without our instruments over the Maiden Voyage ‘African’ backing track specially prepared for this tutorial so as to focus entirely on the Rhythm.
The melodic exercises in the PDF consist of fusing triad pairs (on Herbie Hancocks' beautiful Maiden Voyage) to these Rhythms.
Just by changing the rhythms of the same notes we can create fresh, interesting variations that expand our improvisational horizons!
The Download includes the following files:
- Exercises for Concert, Bb and specially prepared Eb ones adjusted so as to utilise the full range of the Eb Alto Saxophone. (Warning this part is high!)
- The backing track Mp3 jam track in 3 speeds - slow, medium, regular.
Great teaching material!
I haven’t done much practicing yet, but I love the material for its conciseness.
Triad Pair (Maiden Voyage)
This material, like all they rest of the content is extremely well presented. Clear and easy to use. I think you have set a new standard for online/video tutorial presentation. But besides that, the material that is being presented is powerful stuff. I have downloaded several of your pdf/audio tutorials, its the same for all. Thank you Nick, please keep on doing what you are doing!
really original and helpful to develop personal improvisation skills
These exercises are a really good workout. The backing track is great to play over. Information is presented in a very clear way. I would certainly recommend it.
