 Episode 232: Learning Tunes In Multiple Keys Part 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:53

This week, we continue our series on learning tunes in multiple keys. In this episode, we move on to another amazing jazz standard, How High the Moon. In a vacuum, this melody is much easier to play than Au Privave. But upon closer inspection, we realize there may be more hiding under the surface that make things a bit more difficult. We explore what to do when a melody has several key changes and how to make it easier to memorize and, ultimately, move it into other keys. Enjoy! WANT THE PDF THAT GOES ALONG WITH THIS EPISODE??

 Episode 231: Learning Tunes In Multiple Keys Part 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:21

This week we continue our journey to learn how to play melodies in multiple keys. Last episode, we looked at a very simple melody, Sonny Moon for Two. This week, we are diving into a much more complicated melody, Au Privave, by the great, Charlie Parker. We get down to business numbering the different notes in the tune, exploring the technical side of a task such as this. Ultimately, we are looking to use our ears at the end of the day to put this melody in different keys. Enjoy! WANT THE PDF THAT GOES ALONG WITH THIS EPISODE??

New month means a new series here at the 10 Minute Jazz Lesson.

In this episode we will be covering some helpful tips on learning Sonny Rollins' melody, Sonny Moon for Two in every key. Enjoy the episode! WANT THE PDF THAT GOES ALONG WITH THIS EPISODE??

 Episode 229: Tune of the Month: Rhythm Changes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:38

This episode culminates our work on using blues phrasing in places we may not have thought of in the past. So far we have discussed using the blues on the ii-V progression, the iii-VI-ii-V progression, and we have looked at some amazing examples of legendary musicians using these techniques. Now it's time to put all of these things together in the form of an etude and see what we get. In this etude you will notice many techniques being used side-by-side in an effort to create a complete statement. Thanks for listening and enjoy the episode!

 Episode 225: Tune of the Month: I Love You | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 15:10

This week, we finish up our series on the melodic minor scale by utilizing the tune that I think gives us the best opportunities to put our studies into action. Cole Porter's composition, I Love You, is perfect for these applications as it contains a number of the progressions we have been talking talking about all month.

 Episode 222: Melodic Minor Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:12

This month we dive into an extremely useful jazz scale and explore the different places it can be utilized. Melodic minor is an important sound in modern jazz and the use of it's different modes are the basis for many familiar sounds. In part 1, we will look at the pure melodic minor from the root and talk about a trio of chords we can use this over. Some of these chords may surprise you but I think you'll start to see some uses you may have never thought of before. Enjoy the episode! WANT THE PDF THAT GOES ALONG WITH THIS EPISODE??
