CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Good!

The headphones are great, very light and the sound quality is impressive.

- Kevin Smith

Quick turnaround

Great apple product for a very competitive price. Ordering online was a breeze and I was able to collect within 2 days of placing my order.

- Luke Johnson

Love them

Be careful with them as they can easily get lost and fall into random places as they're very small.

MODULE 1- THE BLUES ARPEGGIO

MODULE 1- THE BLUES ARPEGGIO

There is no arpeggio that is taught academically that contains both the Major + Minor 3rd, that is until now!
The BLUES ARPEGGIO offers a solution to this massive hole in music education.
You will learn arguably the most fundamental essential to know sound of Jazz and Blues - the Major/Minor 3rd

MODULE 2 - THE SOUL PENTATONIC

MODULE 2 - THE SOUL PENTATONIC

In this module we add in the Soulful 6th.Why these notes are not taught in the traditional academy beggars belief!

There are cycle of 5ths workouts, rhythmic exercises, drone practice and flexibility drills as well as tutorials on how to apply this amazing sound on to a Blues.

As well as in every module there are multiple specially written demonstration solos to study and aid assimilation.

MODULE 3 - THE SIX NOTE SOUL SCALE

MODULE 3 - THE SIX NOTE SOUL SCALE

This is also known as the Major Blues scale. In this module we take a deep dive in to the importance of the 2nd or the 9th a so overlooked soulful note
As well we will see how we can add more colour and mood by adding in the 4th and the b6/#5 as a passing tone

MODULE 4 - SEVEN NOTE SOUL SCALE

MODULE 4 - SEVEN NOTE SOUL SCALE

You will learn how to inject more Soul and Blues and feeling by adding in the flat 7th to theproceedings.

Learning how to use this muscular note is of paramount importance to the improvisor.

Again there are cycle of 5ths workouts, rhythmic exercises, drone practice, flexibility drills and multiple specially written solos that

demonstrate the soundas well as tutorials on how to apply this amazing sound on to a Blues.

Modules 5 - 8

FREE GIFT BONUS MODULES 5 - 8 (only at this initial offering)

MODULE 5 - 8 NOTE SOUL SCALE
In this module the focus is on to how to effectively use the pungent #4th/b5 colour to
inject spice and colour in to your solo.


MODULE 6 - The NON SYMMETRICAL NINE NOTE SOUL SCALE
Here we feast ourselves on the 9 note scale that features the b3, #4 and flat seven
to such great effect.


MODULE 7- THE TEN NOTE SOUL SCALE
You will learn how to use the nostalgic sharpened 5th/b6 to link the 5th to the b7
And also how to use the strident somewhat incongruous major 7th in the Soul Scale


MODULE 8 - COMBINING THE MAJOR AND MINOR PENTATONICS
You will learn the power of combining the Major and Minor Pentatonics and Blues scales.
This seemingly easy to learn concept can produce stunning sophisticated results almost instantly.
However we will delve deeply in to the musical theory why.


Experienced Jazz Player & Teacher

Nick Homes

Hi, my name is Nick Homes, musician, saxophonist, educator and musical mentor.

 

I was and still am a non genius musician who struggled for many years to find out the secrets of jazz playing.Throughout 35 years of playing, and obsessive investigation I have focussed on building systems of learning for myself and students so they can improve , and reach their goals with the highest probability.

 

My Youtube channel Jazzduets (220,00 subs) is where I  share my systems of learning and personal insights in to music.

 

The Soul Scales course offers a more profound, deeper experience of learning as the 120+video classes are much more personal and have been put together in a step by step logical way, with each class building on the previous one

 

 

You should take this course if

  • You already play an instrument but struggle to improvise Jazz and Blues
  • You are hungry to know and practice the secret exotic jazz notes the greats use
  • You are looking for a tried and tested study method that will take you closer to your goals
  • You are looking for an abundance of material to keep you busy for literally years
  • You are looking for a deep dive in to the secrets of learning improvisation

You should not take this course if

  • You are looking for quick fix superficial hacks
  • You are going to give up as soon as you find the material challenging
  • You are solely interested in learning to play complex chord progressions, as that is not the focus of the Soul Scale course
  • Not willing or able to put in sustained work over 4-8 months
