Soul Scale Exercises for improvisation - All Instruments

 

Note. If you wish to purchase this with a credit card please proceed to JazzDuets parallel site herehttps://gum.co/hmDpp

The Soul Scale is unique as it contains the Major and Minor 3rd - the Ying Yang if you like of Jazz and Blues. Assimilating and controlling these 2 sounds is of fundamental importance to the improvisor.

I wrote these exercises as I believe there is no other such didatic material

available to the student that focuses on these vitally essential 2 notes.

 This Pdf  Digital booklet instant download for all Treble Instruments contains the 11 exercises/lines specially crafted from the video below in all 12 keys which are  specifically designed to help you assimilate of the essential 'exotic' notes that Pro Jazz and Blues players use to express themselves in the most concise understandable way.

This PDF  will  train your ears + fingers to  incorporate this vital Jazz vocabulary 

that is not found in traditional scales.

 

 

These exercises are meant for newcomers to Jazz improvisation (but not music) who are hungry to learn and play the more 'exotic' notes that Jazz and Blues players use to express themselves that are not included in the Academic scales they perhaps already know, and who are perhaps unsure of how to approach learning and assimilating these colourful (may be unfamiliar) sounds, especially if they are new to the Jazz Genre.

There is a lot of material to work on; I'm just getting started. I can see these exercises will improve my technique and ear for melodic lines.

Learn how to improvise with your bass

As a bass player i was strangling to find good material to practice and learn how to improvise.. I have over a hundred of bass books and methods and none of them gives you this knowledge. Thank you Nick for your excellent job!!

Inviting ideas that are fun to play

Great ideas and exercises. The exercises are actually written out in all 12 keys ( which is greatly appreciated). Simple notation is used as well ( which is also greatly appreciated). Worth while to take a look at.
