Go Tell It On The Mountain

I may be a bit early and perhaps it's not politically correct to talk about one of my favorite Christmas holiday songs before Thanksgiving... but soon this Grandma will be busily gathering food and presents for her adorable Grandsons. So, why not start practicing those bass lines for up tempo shouting music now or a slow Gospel feel of Go Tell It On The Mountain.

I wanted to share one of my favorite artists with you. This lovely lady has the voice and feel for this special song. I am also truly blessed to look out my window every day and see this incredible view... enjoy!

Soloing Techniques

Another one of my favorite keyboard players is Jamal Hartwell. Listen to his instruction on soloing. You will learn lots just by watching this clip. Jamal covers the G Blues Scale... G, Bb, C, Db, D, F, G (sometimes A) I've added a bit more here:

"The first key we're going to start with is the key of G and you're going to do a G blues. So we are going to start right on G and play our G seven scale. The blues is compressed with all seven scales so all the scales we're going to learn is our seven scales. We start on G two, three, four, five, six, seven, one. Notice all the way notes very easy and we're just going to go for a bass line. One, three, five, seven, right, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that way we can know what notes we're actually playing when I say one, three, five, seven. Also when we go to the four chord we are playing the forth scale so our C is our four chord and our five chord will be our D. So there is your scale, we are also going to learn the blue scale out of G which is (playing). So you have G and B flat C D flat D and then the F at the top (playing). That's blues works over all of our three chords and all of our three minor chords as well, it's a pretty universal chord that we are going to use throughout the whole piece. We are going to start by playing a one, three, five, seven and G and doing a little blues with my right. (playing) That's your G blues one chord, G."

* Song: 107 degrees in the shade by Alex Bugnon



Swiss-born keyboardist and composer Alex Bugnon has played in New York and Europe.

“After exploring all of the sophisticated and progressive funk that helped me find my sound, I knew I needed to get back to a sound that was more laid back and straight to the point, where the songs, rather than fancy
production, are the focus,” he says. “With the success of artists like Norah Jones and Alicia Keys, it’s clear to me that, like myself, people are tired of the overproduced, heavy machine-oriented music that excited them in the past. These are complicated times we live in, and it’s inspiring to see a trend towards making life simpler and focusing on the more important things.”

* Preview Song 107 Degrees in the Shade

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B)))))27ST/qid=1004554352/sr=1-2


* Reviews on Amazon:

"Alex Bugnon exhibits a high level of creativity and playfulness throughout this work, plenty of suggestive and smooth pieces, but signed with a very personal style. 107 in the shade, for instance, initiates with an exotic melody played in accordion. His French roots are shown in the first two tracks. Elegance and brightness would be the most appropriate terms to describe this notorious CD.

So if you additionally consider there is not minor track, the recommendation is almost an invitation to acquire this interesting album plenty of joyful inspiration and creative rapture.

This is really my first incursion around this young talent, but keeping in mind the rest of good positive reviews, we are in front of another brilliant finding."

"this is sunday morning,read the paper in bed, snuggle up and just plain mellow out! Best of a great artist".

Urban and Contemporary Worship Play by Ear is the quickest way to learn any song by ear. After learning how to play by ear with no one to show me, it forced me to develop an easy and quick process and procedure to learning songs by ear quickly. Many of the musicians, when I was learning how to play, did not know theory nor were they able to explain the process to learning songs. After so many years of finally learning theory, I began to see a remarkable pattern to all songs and I am exposing these secrets to you. By learning these secrets, you will not only be able to create your own music without knowing how to read it, but you will be able to play any song you hear GUARANTEED! "It just cannot get any easier than this......" This is the ultimate DVD for beginners and for musicians looking to get back into playing.

How To Play Unbreakable by Alicia Keys

Alicia KeysAlicia Keys via last.fm

I love the smooth sounds of Alicia Keys' Unbreakable! Here is a wonderful breakdown of the song by pianokid100... enjoy!




Video Transcription

www.myspace.com Making the band for Alicia Keys - Unbreakable Alright, this is another free piano lesson video, this time I am going to be doing Unbreakable by Alicia Keys. It was requested. And it is pretty simple actually, it only has four chords. And I am going to start by first playing the way it should sound by the time you are done learning this video. [Demonstration] Let us start with the bass line. The bass line keys are going to go C#, F#, B, and A flat, and then just repeat C#, F#, B, A flat. The right hand chord, for the first chord for the C# key is going to be B, E flat, E, and A flat with your right hand. And you play the C# bass. And then we move to the second chord, we move the bass to the F#. You are just going to move your thumb down to B flat. So you are going to be playing a B flat, E flat, E, and A flat. So similar looking chord except you move down to the B flat from here to here. You move the bass from C# to F#. Then we play the B bass, you are going to be Am7 with your right hand if you do not know what that looks like. It is basically an A, C#, E, and A flat. And the last chord, you are going to be play an A flat, B, C. and on your right hand, you are going to be playing A, C, E, and F#. [Demonstration] And those are the chords now there is a little part when you go. [Demonstration] That is basically A flat, A, and B flat. You are going to play where you have an A flat up here, A, A, and you are going B flat. And the last two chords


INTRO:

(just bass notes)
G# A A# B


VERSE/CHORUS (the chords never change from here on out)

Amaj7/B Adim/G# C#7 F#7
--------------------------------

And that's it.

NOTES
For that C#7 chord (on the piano) I always use
the 3rd inversion which would be (from bottom note to top)

G#
B
C#
E

Learn Improvisation Concepts: Repeating Riffs

First page of WC Handy's "St.Image via Wikipedia



Sometimes the best lessons are the simplest. Too much theory and too many technical terms can kill the best of intentions and enthusiasm for improvisation. Students are quickly engaged in playing chord changes by rote using the basic 12-bar blues progression:
I, I, I, I, IV, IV, I, I, V, IV, I, I

With simple repeating rhythms and melodic intervals, students flow through the basics of blues improvisation.

Example 1: Simple Blues Riffs

C7/ C, C ( 4 x's)
F7/ F, F ( 2 x's)
C7/ C, C ( 2 x's)
G7/ G, G
F7/ F, F
C7/ C, C ( 2 x's)

Roots... 1, flat 7, 1... 1, flat7 1, b3

Example 2: Blues Riff Transposed

By getting the students to sing the riffs, they can overcome their instrumental shyness and start to hear the changes. They become better oriented and don't get lost while they're mentally and aurally manipulating the root, flat third and flat 7th of three chords with a series of simple rhythms.Now they're improvising. Once that can be done smoothly, we expand the riffs to include:

First time comping
Example with Blues Riff Transposed

C7/ C,C, Bb, C,C, Eb - 4 x's (play r.h. single notes while holding C7 chord w/ l.h.)

F7/ F, F, Eb, F, F, Ab - 2 x's

C7/ C, C, Bb, C, C, Eb - 2 x's

G7/ G, G, F, G, G, Bb

F7/ F, F, Eb, F, F, Ab

C7/ C, C, Bb, C, C, Eb - 2 x's

Example 3: More Complex Blues Riffs

1, flat 7, 5, flat 7, 1... 1, 3, 5, 3... 1, 3, 5, 8, flat 7

* C7/ C, C, Bb, C
F7/ F, F, Eb, F
G7/ G, G, F, G

* C7/ C, C, Bb, C, C, Eb
F7/ F, F, Eb, F, F, Ab
G7/ G, G, F, G, G, Bb

* C7/ C, C, Bb, G, Bb, C
F7/ F, F, Eb, c, Eb, F
G7/ G, G, F, D, F, G

* C7/ C, C, E, G
F7/ F, F, A, C
G7/ G, G, B, D

* C7/ C, E, G, C, Bb
F7/ F, A, C, F, Eb
G7/ G, B, D, G, F


Teaching improv concepts and using a rhythm section are really two different tasks that need to be done simultaneously. Practice along with a play-along recording.
