Jazz Improvisation for Bass with Andrea Fascetti: Chromatic Approaches in Action Part 5

HI MY FRIENDS AND “BASS COLLEAGUES” !!!!!!!

FANTASTIC MAGAZINE,GREAT TO BE HERE 🙂

I HOPE YOU APPRECIATED THESE IMPROVISATIONS  TECHNIQUES LESSONS.I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A VERY LONG COURSE ABOUT   IMPROVISATION.SO STAY TUNED IF YOU WANT TO INCREASE YOUR SKILLS ABOUT THIS DIFFICULT ARGUMENT.

WE WORKED OVER CHORDS,BASS FINGERBOARD,EAR TRAINING, CHROMATIC APPROACHES PLUS VARIOUS SUGGESTIONS ABOUT TECHNIQUES AND TRANSCRIPTIONS. I THINK THAT IF YOU PRACTICED CORRECTLY THIS STUFF,YOU STRONGLY INCREASE YOUR MUSIC SKILLS.PLEASE CHECK MY LESSONS PAGE HERE IN THE MAGAZINE AND TAKE A LOOK TO ALL PAST LESSONS.

NOW WE KEEP TO USE THIS VERY GOOD TECHNIQUE CALLED CHROMATIC APPROACHES, THAT I LEARNED FROM MY TEACHER CHARLIE BANACOS. I ADAPTED IT TO BASS  USING SOME OF MY OWN  IDEAS.

THIS TIME WE GO BACK TO DIMINISHED CHORD (in key of c : C Eb Gb Bbb) WHO IS THE FIFTH CHORD OF THIS GROUP OF LESSONS AND  I WRITE FOR YOU A NEW LINE USING CHROMATIC APPROACHES.REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN USE CHROMATICS TO APPROACH ALL CHORD TONES!IN THE PAST LESSONS   I USED ONLY A TYPE OF CHROMATIC APPROACH,BUT NOW YOU CAN TRY TO USE MORE COMBINATIONS OF NOTES.NEXT LESSONS WE GO ON TO USE THIS KIND OF  LINE OVER ALL CHORD TYPES,SO YOU’LL ADAPT THE NOTES TO VARIOUS CHORD TONES.

OK,IT’S TIME FOR USUAL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:

1)TAKE THE EXERCISE.WHAT HAPPENS HERE?I WROTE A VERY EASY TWO CHORDS VAMP JUST TO SHOW YOU HOW YOU CAN PLAY A SIMPLE SOLO OVER A DIMINISHED CHORD LINE USING CHROMATIC APPROACHES.

REMEMBER:DO NOT USE A METRONOME!!!!ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE THE EXERCISE “UNDER YOUR FINGERS”,YOU CAN USE A METRONOME.AS USUAL PLAY THE EXERCISE AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

2) TRANSPOSE THE EXERCISE IN ALL KEYS!

3)ANALYZE HOW I USED THE NOTES  AND THEN  WRITE AN EXERCISES ON YOUR OWN.IT’S BASIC!!!

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A GREAT PRACTICE TIME 🙂
