Jazz Improvisation With Andrea Fascetti: Master Your Fingerboard Part XII

Meet Andrea Fascetti –

HI MY FRIENDS!

IT’S REALLY MAGIC TO BE HERE AGAIN. I’M PROUD TO BE PART OF THIS AWESOME STAFF AT BASS MUSICIAN MAGAZINE. I NOTICE THAT EVERYONE CONTINUES TO DO AN OUTSTANDING JOB… COOL!!!!!
AS USUAL, I HOPE YOU LIKE THE LESSONS… IT’S AN HARD WORK MY FRIENDS BUT IF YOU PRACTICE THIS STUFF YOU WILL QUICKLY INCREASE YOUR MUSICIANSHIP.

ON TO THE LESSON… TODAY WE WILL USE A NEW CHORD, A POWERFUL C7#5. YOU CAN FIND THIS SPECIAL SOUND IN COUNTLESS JAZZ STANDARDS FROM MANY AGES, SO PRACTICE IT WITH SOME RESPECT.

EX.1 TAKE A C7#5 TWO-OCTAVE ARPEGGIO *(C E G# Bb C E G# Bb G E C Bb G# E C) UP AND DOWN THE FINGERBOARD AND FORCE YOURSELF TO PLAY IT VERY SLOWLY, AND WITHOUT A METRONOME. SAY THE NAMES OF THE NOTES WHILE PRACTICING. REMEMBER, NO GROOVE… NOTHING… ONLY YOU AND THE NOTES! NOW START TO PRACTICE ALL THE NOTES USING ONLY ONE STRING (WHEN POSSIBLE), THEN TWO STRINGS, THEN THREE STRINGS, AND FINALLY FOUR STRINGS. PRACTICE THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL YOU’VE ABSORBED THE INFORMATION, AND YOUR FINGERBOARD HAS BECOME YOUR BEST FRIEND. THEN YOU CAN INCREASE SPEED AND TAKE IT TO A FASTER LEVEL. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO LEARN YOUR FINGERBOARD AS WELL AS YOUR ARPEGGIOS AND SCALES. I SUGGEST YOU SING ALONG WITH ALL NOTES WHILE YOU’RE PRACTICING TO OPEN UP YOUR EARS.

* TAKE A LOOK TO THE FIRST LESSON FOR THE CHORD CHART IF YOU NEED TO

OK, I HOPE YOU WILL PRACTICE THIS STUFF.

SEE YOU SOON!!!

CIAO
ANDREA
