I’m just churning out these little sheets…by request…
This is entirely optional material, as far as completing the above course is concerned. As I said yesterday, this is a supplement I’m putting together, in response to recent requests that I’ve had from students who can read music.
Non-music readers: This course was designed to require ZERO reading of music. Fear not!
How’s yo blues?
I’ve had requests for piano notation covering the blues licks in my course, A Study in Blues Piano.
That course is video-based, and teaches from a chord-based improvisation point of view.
I sometimes resist providing notation for improvisation-focused courses, because it can almost promote blind imitation, rather than creative playing.
That said, I’ve had a couple of convincing requests lately from students who wanted to have sheet music to supplement this class. As a result, I’ve decided to provide notation for several of the licks, plus notation for a complete blues piano solo (featuring licks from the course).
Here’s a downloadable PDF file for Lick #1, “Energy.”
