Lydian Ending Practice Sessions
Practice Session 1: Play the Lesson Introduction Transcription
To inform your intuition and develop your musical instincts by playing the transcription and imitating the recording.
Listen to the transcription from part one of the lesson and play the transcription as written.
Listen to the introduction of the lesson again. As you listen, read along with the music in the notation gallery below. Pay attention to the details of how the right hand notes are played: phrasing, articulation, rhythmic feel and the overall expressive inflection.
Play the transcription as notated below. Imitate my playing by emulating the elements that you noted above. To turn the page, swipe (on touchscreen devices) or press the navigation arrows on PCs (hover over the notation to reveal the arrows).
Record your performance and compare it to the original recording.
How does your recording compare and contrast with the original recording with respect to phrasing, articulation, rhythmic feel and the overall expressive inflection?
Record your playing multiple times and listen to them again several days later. Letting time pass between recording the solo and listening to it can give you perspective on your playing that is more objective than when you are in the midst of making the recording.
