When you are learning a new jazz tune, it's imperative to get the melody right. To learn it the right way. What is the right way? How do you know that? Let me tell you.
Before you're all too sick of it, let's focus on the amazing mind and ears that come with our human bodies and talk about how it's possible to perceive sound in different ways!
Ride along with me as I talk about why I think you are already playing what you hear.
Improve your pitch, whether you are a singer or a stringed instrument player by using the technology that is free and right at our fingertips! It's not rocket science...and it's fun.
Air Date: 4/12/2018 on WNMUFM 90 out of Northern Michigan University for the NMU jazz festival that I headlined.
Listen to this story (edited by my 13-year-old, Charlie) about the time in my life when honesty was not the best policy.
Well, this is my family. The real us...just after we crossed the Mississippi River, headed across Iowa and into Missouri, on the way to John's grandpa's farm. At this point, we've been road-tripping for 9 days, and we may be a little loopy, but I still convinced them to sing a bit. I hope you enjoy these crazy wonderful people I'm proud to call my family. Songs: "I'll Fly Away" written in 1929 by Albert E. Brumley "The Star Spangled Banner" by John Stafford Smith and Francis Scott Key 1814
I don't always ask my family to sing in five part harmony on road trips, but they were nice enough to agree and help me make my video for the day. Here is "Sweet Hour Of Prayer" and some shenanigans.
