Lesson From Legends
Week 4 of 8
Today we're checking out The Time Scale. This is a concept where instead of building scales in the sense of building upon pitch intervals between the notes, now we're going to build a rhythmic scale by building upon TIME intervals between the notes. This is an idea I was introduced to while studying with the incredible drummer, Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jimmy Herring, and countless others).
Also, while I know we haven't finished this 8-week masterclass series yet... this is going to be the last lesson for this project for now. I can't believe it's been almost a year since starting this weekly project, and I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have.
However, I recently launched The Melodic Triads Study Group. It's becoming a wonderful, encouraging, supportive, and engaged community of likeminded musicians dedicating ourselves to the study and application of melodic triads. Unfortunately, having two different projects going (the study group AND these free masterclasses) is starting to cause a lot of confusion. I'm hearing a lot of frustration about people thinking that I'm talking about one thing when I'm actually talking about another, or not being able to find the resources I'm posting... it's been causing problems.
Also, these masterclasses, while I try my best to show where the simplicity and fundamentals come from, generally I'm so busy trying to show the cool, complicated stuff, that it never really gives me a chance to truly break things down to the fundamentals and show you guys how to work on these things in a way that will actually allow you to make them your own. Whereas, that's what The Melodic Triads Study Group is all about.
This is me thanking you for a really amazing year meeting lots of cool people and talking about lots of cool ideas and inviting you to come and join the study group. It's really become an amazing place, and in just the last 6 weeks or so we've gotten watch a handful of our members playing completely transform and grow into some really exciting new places. We all hope you'll join in and take part as well!
