TEACH YOURSELF TO PLAY BLUES & BOOGIE PIANO BK/OLA
If you are a pianist who has already developed some ability on your instrument, and have an interest in learning about blues and boogie woogie, this book is tailor-made for you. Jazz and swing are also discussed. You'll focus on many aspects of these styles, proceeding slowly at first, then progressing more quickly after the fundamentals have been introduced. Most of the songs and arrangements are at the intermediate level. The online audio features demo tracks, as well as stylistic backing tracks – with bass and drums only – so you can play along as the soloist. Topics covered include: 12-bar blues • left-hand bass patterns • right-hand licks • turnarounds & endings • swing & dotted rhythms • improvisation • and much more.
