The quiz is tomorrow. Notes here.
Listen to the examples of the Improvisation Over a Pedal Point Bassline. They can be found at the bottom of the instructions.
Continue working on Improvisation Over a Pedal Point Bassline.
Today you may rewrite your bassline and drums as needed. Focus your remaining time on practicing improvisation.
We will take a few minutes to listen to and critique some of the DrumBeatA assignments. Common suggestions for improvement include some of the following items.
- Add notes to the downbeat
- Add notes to the last beat
- Make the pattern more or less consistent. Consistency is good… to a point.
- QUANTIZE (try a larger fraction like 1/8 instead of 1/16)
Take a vocabulary review mini-quiz.
