Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

November 28, 2011 | Don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing.

JulinYouTube.jpgLast Thursday's "Tips and Tricks" entry was from jazz mentor Don Julin, a treatise on achieving the sometimes illusive concept of swing. It's often considered more mental than physical, but Don brings it home with some practical tips on pick strokes and up/down articulations, including video demonstrations.

We've had the great benefit of Don and other guest columnists in our weekly Tips and Tricks column. If you haven't already, we suggest adding this feature to your favorite RSS reader, or browse the Tips Archives.
