Don't be Square exercises + Mp3 Tutorial + PDF digital download
If we practice lines that are Square and start on the beat we will almost inevitably be Square improvisors, and even worse, we will become trapped in this Square way of playing.
This Digital package has been specially designed to give you the resources so that you can turn regular lines and exercises in to rhythmical phrases full of life!
As well the concepts covered will serve as preparation for playing in odd time signatures like 5/4 or /7/8.
The Instant Download Includes :
- A Specially recorded Podcast tutorial (8mins) where I teach you two tremendous musical techniques that will ensure that your lines will never be square again! Simple but vital techniques for the improvisor to know. (this podcast includes audio examples of the 8 examples/exercises)
- PDF of the sheet music examples for Concert, Bb, Eb and Bass instruments
- Mp3 of all the Youtube video examples + all the examples in the podcast tutorial - so you can hear how they sound.
- The "Funky beat" on its own for you to enjoy practicing with.
JazzDuets presentation are always clear and offer a lot of practice possibilities with plenty of exercises to grow into. Having both the audio and PDFs is so helpful for learning how to hear the transitions and variations. The author is also very generous in sharing personal stories of lessons he has learned along the way.
I've found lots of ways to try out new ideas both in my daily practice routines and also incorporate them in compositions ! From the bottom of my heart ! Thank YOU Nick !
Great easy learning tool thanks
I appreciate and enjoy ALL your YouTube content. Inspiring and very educational with humour and obvious knowledge and experience that can only come from playing from the heart AND head.
