    Pattern 17 all variations 144 bpm

    I feel like I'm bringing up the rear this week. Got busy in other areas and didn't get he practice time in that I would have liked. Had to cram this weekend so I could get a video shot and posted.

    I bit off a little more than I could chew. I wanted to do all four sequence variations with pattern 17 and do them in one shot. I just managed to get a decent take. There are some missed notes here and there. You can see I have a brain freeze and freak out a bit on the last sequence, but I managed to keep the rubber on the road and get to the end.


    Patter 17 - all variations - 144 bpm

    Thanks. I'm just a rock guy trying to get some jazz chops, so it's a fun way to apply this stuff and still have some groove.

    I wish I had half of your relaxed hand positioning, though. I think I'm pretty relaxed, then I look at the vid and cringe. I'm still trying to figure out the best playing position. I'd like to avoid having to put the thing right under my chin, but I see a lot of older, heavier guys doing that.



    In other news. anybody have an ideas on what tempo range to use for pattern 21? I plugged in 190, but that seemed a little fast, so I dropped it down to 180.

    Yeah. Especially the minor thirds patterns. Very cool.

    Yep, but not as good as Rob's, I think I have too much light with a window in front and one on the side.

    The post from Fep about using DAWS got me thinking about different ways to practise exercises. Started working on pattern 19 this morning, but experimented with a synth patch. It’s monophonic, and requires precise playing, as it does not respond well to slurring, slides and whatnot.

    It was interesting, I had to slow down about 15 bpm for it to sound decent. Turns out I’m also more precise with a small pick(which I don’t like) then a regular sized one(that I like).

    This is not me trying to turn his into a gear discussion, but to show this tread has already inspired me to try something new

    Pattern 19 bpm 160(ish). Synth guitar patch, trying to be overly precise.

    Hey I just wanted to say I've enjoyed your contributions. You are a "fresh face" here and your conscious decision as a rock guy to go after some jazz chops is encouraging to me. I like your posts and the way you actually turn the pattern into a little performance, backing tracks, fx loop and all.

    Don't go away! I'd love to see you advance even more in your exploration of jazz.

    I'm assuming 138-192 bpm for #21, based on #16 and similar.

    I put up a couple of random videos. Should've had a 2nd cup of coffee first . Sorry to be slightly more rambling than usual maybe.

    Holy Crap. I was about to post and realized on Pattern 18 I NEVER EVEN SAW THE 8TH REST AT THE START! Oh well...

    I appreciate people who post their playing. I'm here to learn how to PLAY BETTER and I like to see and hear fellow travelers who present their efforts, sometimes amazing, sometimes modest. Two kinds of people here: those that post their playing, and those that just talk.
