Develop many important musicianship skills simultaneously with this course!

The purpose of this course is to have one exercise that improves multiple aspects of your musicianship at the same time.

  • Improve your ability to hear the entire chord progression in one key center.
  • Improve your ability to consistently play in time.
  • Developed a student's ability to have the right feel when playing in a triplet based style.
  • Improve the students harmonic palette so that they can hear more complicated types of key centers.
  • Develop a sense of form so that a student can feel a 12 bar chord progression rather than count through each measure
  • Develop your timing skills so that you don't speed up or slow down when playing chord progressions.
  • Develop soloing skills so that you know where you are within a 12 bar Major or Minor Blues.
  • Develop a student's ability to play in a duet situation.

How it works.

First thing to realize that this is a fun course. You are actually getting to play music while developing all the skills listed above. The MP3s play the chord progression one chorus then there is only a metronome clicking on 2 and 4 for one chorus. The student improvises or comps the changes during this chorus. The accompanying chords then come in and play the next chorus of changes. By working with these MP3 files you will develop a feel for both a Major and Minor 12 bar blues form.

  • For guitarist or pianists it is recommended that you improvise using a simple blues scale while listening to the chords. The next chorus you will only hear a metronome and it is during this time that you should play the chords.
  • If you play a non-chordal instrument then you should again improvise with a simple blues scale while listening to the chords and then arpeggiate each chord while thinking what the notes are in the overall key center for each note.
