100% correct transcriptions
When embarking on a musical journey you have to take care of many different aspects of your playing. Technique, rhythm, sound, tone, repertoire, scales, chords, improvisation, and so on and so forth. Usually these concepts need to be practiced one at a time but of course, when you're playing, all musical elements are expressed at once. It is very difficult to play freely, manage all this information and to make hundreds of practice hours count at the same time.
But here's the thing, there actually is one ring to rule them all, and that is transcribing.
I spent years transcribing the solos of the players I like the most, and it maybe is one of the best things to do if you want to get better. Why is that? When playing a Miles Davis solo, for instance, you're actually practicing everything at once. Sight reading, tone, modes, feel, rhythm, harmony (if you consciously think about it while playing), repertoire, technique. The more good stuff you play, and listen, the better you're going to sound.
If you want to play jazz, or blues, or rock, then you have to practice not only scales and modes but especially the music itself. If you spend an year studying all scales and modes, how are you going to play better? And why should you? The only achieved result will be scales and modes knowledge, and maybe better technique, but that's it. If you love Miles Davis and you want to sound like him before finding your inner language, then play Miles Davis. Why should one waste his time?
I was fortunate enough to dedicate my life to music studies, which naturally resulted in music notation knowledge. I know that there are many good players in the world who didn't have the same opportunity and are not able to transcribe a solo.
Here's why I'd like to share some of my transcriptions with you, so that you can choose your solo of choice and play it. Solos come in standard notation and every image is a link to my YouTube channel where you can see me playing the solo.
After the purchase you will receive your solo of choice in your e-mail inbox. Have fun!
