BEBOP – JAZZ IMPROVISATION WITH ANDREA FASCETTI

BEBOP – JAZZ IMPROVISATION WITH ANDREA FASCETTI…  LET’S START WITH BEBOP!

HI MY FRIEND AND COLLEAGUES,

IT’S GREAT TO BE HERE AGAIN!

I HOPE YOU APPRECIATE MY LESSONS. I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A LONG COURSE ABOUT IMPROVISATION, SO STAY TUNED IF YOU WANT TO INCREASE YOUR SKILLS ABOUT THIS SUBJECT.

SO FAR WE HAVE WORKED OVER CHORDS, BASS FINGERBOARD, EAR TRAINING AND VARIOUS SUGGESTIONS ABOUT TECNIQUE AND TRASCRIPTIONS. I THINK THAT IF YOU PRACTICED THIS STUFF CORRECTLY, YOU ARE READY TO START WORKING WITH BEBOP! PLEASE CHECK THIS LINK FOR MORE ON THIS GENRE OF MUSIC (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bebop).

BEBOP NEEDS GOOD TECNIQUE AND VARIOUS SKILLS, AND THIS IS THE REASON WHY I HAVE WAITED A LONG TIME BEFORE INTRODUCING THIS TOPIC. ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS FOR THIS GENRE IS CHARLIE PARKER (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Parker)!

OK, IT’S TIME FOR THE USUAL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:

1) TAKE THE FIRST 4 BARS OF DONNA LEE BY MILES DAVIS (YOU CAN FIND THIS MUSIC EVERYWHERE), PLAY IT VERY SLOWLY AND SING THE NOTES ALONG WITH YOUR BASS… NOT A PROBLEM IF YOU LOOK DUMB – LOL!

2) TRY TO ANALYZE THE NOTES (IS A 5TH OF THE CHORD, OR A THIRD, FOR EXAMPLE). YOU’LL FIND SOME STRANGE NOTES FOR SURE! NO PROBLEM, THIS IS THE STUFF WE’LL USE IN UPCOMING LESSONS.

3) DO A BIG REVIEW OF LESSONS ABOUT MAJ 7TH CHORDS, MINOR 7TH CHORDS, AND 7TH DOMINANT CHORDS!  

OK, AS USUAL IT’S HARD WORK…. PLEASE DON’T HATE ME… I ONLY WANT TO HELP MAKE YOU A BETTER MUSICIAN.

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A GOOD PRACTICE TIME!

ANDREA
