JAZZ IMPROVISATION WITH ANDREA FASCETTI – BEBOP LESSON NUMBER 3

JAZZ IMPROVISATION WITH ANDREA FASCETTI – BEBOP LESSON NUMBER 3…

HI MY “BASS” FRIENDS!

HOW ARE YOU? HAVE YOU BEEN PRACTICING BEBOP LINES? I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS REALLY COOL STYLE. IF YOU OPEN YOUR EARS, YOU ‘LL DISCOVER THAT MANY “BIG” AND REALLY FAMOUS BASS PLAYERS USE THIS MUSICAL LANGUAGE IN THEIR PHRASING AND BASS LINES. AS I SAID, IT’S NOT IMPORTANT IF YOU PLAY JAZZ OR DON’T PLAY JAZZ… IF YOU STUDY THESE EXERCISES YOU’LL BUILD A WAY TO DEVELO YOUR PERSONAL STYLE.

IF YOU NOTICED, AT THE MOMENT I AM NOT WRITING PATTERNS FOR YOU. INSTEAD, I TRY TO STIMULATE YOU TO THINK ANALYZE THE MUSIC ON YOUR OWN. I’M SURE THAT IT’S MORE DIFFICULT, BUT FOR ME IT IS REALLY USEFUL.

BTW THERE ARE A MILLION WAYS TO PRACTICE, SO FEEL FREE TO FIND YOUR PERSONAL WAY…

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

1) RETURN AGAIN TO DONNALEE (LAST LESSONS WE PLAY FIRST 8 BARS)… PLAY FROM BAR 9 TO 12. PLAY IT EXTREMELY SLOWLY AND SING THE NOTES ALONG WITH YOUR BASS… NO PROBLEM IF YOU FEEL DUMB 🙂 THEN TRY TO TRANSPOSE IT TO OTHER SEVERAL KEYS.

2) TRY TO IMITATE THE BEBOP STYLE AND WRITE A SHORT MUSICAL PHRASE USING THE NOTES YOU FOUND IN THIS SONG.

3) TRY TO ANALIZE THE NOTES (IS IT A 5TH OF THE CHORD? OR A THIRD? FOR EXAMPLE).

4) DO A SUPER BIG REVIEW OF LESSONS ABOUT SUS CHORDS, MAJOR 7TH, #5 CHORDS AND MAJ 7TH b5 CHORDS. ALL KEYS!

OK? DON’T GIVE UP NOW… WE’RE REALLY CLOSE TO BE BOP SOUL 🙂

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A GOOD PRACTICE TIME.

ANDREA
