Jazz Phrasing & Timing
This is my “good for everything” lesson!
One of the most ignored aspects of musicianship is what
we call “TIME” – a swinging, rhythmic feel and groove!
I have chosen a simple minor blues so that we can
concentrate completely on a solid time and rhythm.
We will go through examples of fluent jazzy lines
for soloing and chords for a groovy accompaniment.
Plus some useful ideas for practicing with a
metronome, forever applicable! So, as we all know:
It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing!
