In A Mellow Tone – Lesson Four

The fourth and final lesson in our ‘In A Mellow Tone’ transcription project.  In this lesson we will cover clips 7&8 and show you how to record your version of the project.

In A Mellow Tone – Lesson Three

In this lesson we will be dealing with Clips 5&6 and in the video lesson, I will be going into much more detail than usual, (it’s a long one, so get a drink and settled!)

In A Mellow Tone – Lesson Two

Clips 3&4 are quite contrasting clips. In clip 3 Javon seems to keep it quite ‘straight’ and inside the scale of Bb major, whereas in Clip 4 he explores more of the chromatic enclosures that are often found in Bebop.

In A Mellow Tone – Lesson One

We’re taking the break into the solo and learning these fantastic opening lines of Javon’s solo. Remember, transcribing is much easier if you have some software to help, either Transcribe on your computer, or AnyTunePro on your phone.

Transcribe Surrey with the Fringe – Lesson 8

In this lesson we glue clips 14, 15 & 16 together so form the final part of our solo.  As I’ve said in the video, don’t attempt this until you’ve got clip 13 from lesson 7 done!

Transcribe Surrey with the Fringe – Lesson 7

Today we’ve got something a little different. This clip 13 is HARD and it had me stumped for days, so I’ve decided to transcribe it onto paper for you so you can work through it.
