Triad pair Cantaloupe Island exercises PDF (Advanced) Digital Download)

Question - What is this System- Triad pairs?

Answer - An immensely powerful innovative improvisational tool!

Simply put, it is superimposing pairs of triads (major or minor) over a given chord.
When we play triad pairs on top of a base chord we can EVOKE exotic sounds and colours.

Just as a master chef adds special ingredients to a dish to produce a
mouth watering flavours we can learn to colour our improvisations in a masterful way superimposing triads, taking our playing rapidly to a higher level.

This PDF features very carefully written Triad pair exercises over the famous groovy chords of Cantaloupe Island by Herbie Hancock that will challenge you technically whilst training your ear to hear these harmonies taking your playing to a new level.

 This  digital Pdf  ( in 4 versions: for  Bb Sax and Bb Trumpet + Eb Sax + C instruments) contains :

1)  the exact Exercises as shown in the Youtube Video 

2) the 'basic' versions  of the  above exercises that are written to

introduce the player to the triads- hence one grouping per chorus

of 3, 4 ,5 ,6, 7 and 8 notes in 8th notes, triplets and 16th notes-

(7 pages of these preparatory exercises) 

 3)  2 x Mp3 Play alongs to practice with at original pace and a little slower!

4) New Eb versions  specially adapted for Alto Sax, using the entire range

Excellent teaching and leaning materials

I think this is great. I've seen much tutorial material on triad pairs, but the delivery and clarity of this course is really inspiring. Also beautifully demonstrated on soprano by the teacher. Thanks, when I've absorbed this I'll definitely be back for more from Jazz Duets. Recommended.

Triad pair Cantaloupe Island exercises

Hi Nick, these exercises are fun to play and its quite melodic, which I like. I can't stop playing them, enough exercises to last me for the year. Think the 16th note exercises will need more time. When I get some of these in my playing I will definitely look at other material. Thank you. AVS

superimposed triads

A very comprehensive work and tool to practise and play - to get the sound in your ear. With al little analysis you can get some very tasteful notes in your solo over the chords.

Hi ... your lecture notes are very well done ... as far as I'm concerned I would add a few pages, but few, on the theory of the various topics covered
