Bach Shapes Bass Clef Edition: Diatonic Sequences From the Music of J.S. Bach
Bach Shapes… The ear is key, and Bach’s melodies teach us how to voice lead through chords better than anything else, so what could be more applicable to us as jazz improvisers?
The 70 pages of exercises here will teach you to:
• Learn to pre-hear intervals, which will help you learn to play what you are hearing faster than any other approach.
• Improve your pitch. Practice these with any drone found on Youtube.
• Improve your technique.
• Increase your vocabulary of melodic shapes, usable in so many situations!
• Apply interval patterns to jazz harmonic progressions via 4 jazz etudes on standard progressions.
All of the Shapes in this book come directly from the music of J.S. Bach. There has never been a book like this before, and this is just the beginning.
