eventually i just decided to accept that that's the way it is...
chords are interchangable, whatever that means.
Whenever i see something like that, i just think V7 alt anyhow.
WWFGP? (What Would Freddie Green Play?)
Been messin’ wit dis all week...
please let us know the mailing address of the looney bin in which youll be residing.....we will send you stuff.
I’ve been in the looney bin for quite some time....
But it’s something to do... something to peddle with...
this is good stuff. not jazz. not not jazz. but super cool. so much to learn.
Oh it's jazz.
Simon's Peg-ish challenge ( and my fumble fingered take on it):
Damn man, I can listen to you play all day long! Everything that you have posted sounds fantastic!
Fezz, Lovin' the vibe. Rotosphere! Unisons. I particularly like the way your pitch is so dead on even on slides and bends. Very cool and it shows how you play with your ears and not your fingers. That's the real deal.
I didn't know anyone still posted jams anymore, I'll see if I can hit this one tonight, channel a little Skunk maybe.
There's a great starter book pdf on the Jazz forum site! Register, and download that thing!
Thanks Chuck. The wobble is an ADT plugin.
There's a bunch of great jam threads here on ST:
The Challenges .
Ebidis Sunday Jam.
And now, this here Practical Jazz Workshop.
okay, i've been struggling with Breezin... this is the best one shot front to back that i've got to show for myself as of right now... i guess. it's the one i kept, let's just say that. there have only been three takes (the first of them is upstream a few pages) that i've managed to record straight through without making such a horrible sounding mistake that i had to stop and leave the bandstand in shame and then go leap from the Golden Gate - how many aborted attempts? i don't know. 10? Mostly i played along with Szabo and Womack to get as far as i've gotten...
This sounds pretty good Monte.
Try to simplify to help with the timing. Rather than play to the Szabo/Womack version, go with Benson. He plays it close to the vest, and the groove. E pointed out earlier how he holds back and plays for the song and groove. Work the head as GB played it. This will help you find the space where everything goes. Remember, it's a simple I/vi/ii/V. Nothing complicated going on here. Work the groove, brother.
tried it. helped a lot. things are starting and ending better now.
but don't take that to mean that i think its all better now!! on a better track yes
The whole point of the thread!
i recorded another take. getting though it was easier... falling out of the changes happened a few times, nbut grabbing back on was pretty easy and the head helps there quite a bit(i suppose that's obvious to the rest of the world) - a big obstacle is to play it fearlessly cuz i'm not - i'm all please dont eff it up the whole time... of course i feel that way about the cowboy chords for hobos lullaby most of the time too. in any case that advice worked out really nicely. thanks!
Sounds like its coming along nicely Monte!
Listen to the Benson version several times through without playing along. Take note of the form, what he plays and where. There are definitive parts all through it. Even when he ad libs or improvises , he never steers far from the form/Theme.
Also, and I hope I'm not being Captain Obvious....the backing track is the Benson version.
