How to Create Sick Bebop Lines | 2 5 1 | My Little Suede Shoes Hi guys we’re continuing our study in our ‘momentum’ approach to playing bebop. Today we are simply practicing into the target notes. This creates a very easy scale that will help you hear the chord changes and the harmonic rhythm. It also helps us fit the improvised melody – your jazz stuff – into the song at the correct spots. You will begin to feel the music.
As always – we are practicing many things at the same time so concentrate – learn you songs – and learn this approach to voice leading jazz melodies. Seriously – stick to this approach and you’ll be playing bebop like Charlie Parker a lot sooner than you realize. #thesunnyside #jazzeducation #saxophonelessons
