This best selling book differs from the myriad of other sight singing books in that it develops the ability to identify and name all twelve pitches within a key center.

This ebook is a must own for anyone serious about developing their ability to improvise and compose. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 108 pages.

KEY NOTE RECOGNITION - EBOOK/PDF VERSION

No reviews

To play 'by ear' a musician must first sense the key a chord or chord progression is in. You must also be able to sense key modulations in order to follow chord progressions that change key. The exercise found in this book is crucial to developing these skills.

Imagine being able to know the key of what you are hearing by just playing one note on your instrument. Think about the power this gives you to follow unfamiliar chord changes and get a quick sense of where keys are changing. This is the first step in developing the ability to follow complicated chord changes or to make informed scale choices when playing over a chord progression.

More importantly, developing the skills found in this book allows you to organize and remember sound based on how you hear it, not on how you consciously think about it. It will move you away from remembering sound based on non-musical distinctions such as instrument fingerings, and toward remembering and organizing sound based on how you hear it. Ultimately, this brings you closer to a deeper understanding of music and you will be able to store and retrieve music in your mind from a much more musical place.

MASTERING THE BASS

No reviews

Comprehensive study on the artistry of being a bassist.
To become a master requires a total devotion to learning that craft. A master is someone who has strong, consistent skills and executes them perfectly with only the effort required to do so. This mastery requires experience and practice. When the question is asked, 'how much should I practice?' the correct answer is, 'until you have mastered what you're working on.' This book is designed to give the student a thorough, gradual study of obtainable musical goals including a strong rhythmic foundation upon which bass playing must be built. That is the reason for the great number of short repeated grooves and vamps as well as a myriad of open string and first position studies. The intention is not to limit the player to the low positions but to insure the mastery of the bass register as well as all other registers of the instrument and introduce a wide range of musical examples. Some music requires an entire lifetime of practice. Being a Master does not mean that the Master need not practice anymore. One should always try to improve and learn new music. This is the example true Masters set for others to follow. When a musical example, (simple or difficult), is mastered by a student, there is a tremendous sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. With each mastered piece comes more fulfillment. Good luck, work hard and have fun mastering the bass !

The One Minute Lesson" covers many of the topics I commonly discuss with my private students. This sometimes happens because a student asks me about a certain subject but more often its because I hear a skill that is lacking in their musicianship. The One Minute Lesson is not meant to be an exhaustive study of any particular subject rather it is a glimpse into one subject that is sometimes small, sometimes big but always important. At the outset you should realize that some of these "One Minute Lessons" have much more content than others. This variance in the amount of material supplied in a "One Minute Lesson" is usually caused by the subject presented. Sometimes specific exercises with MP3s and Midifiles can be supplied to help a student master a particular subject but other times it might just be a lesson where I'm nudging a student to help them keep something important in mind or refine their understanding of something they might know but not completely understand. In general I think these "One Minute Lessons" should be watched every few years as you develop your musical skills because different subjects will become important to your development at different times.
