Approach Note Velocity Volume 1&2 By Steve Neff
Paperback: $29.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
A number of years ago, I was frustrated with my playing over static major and minor grooves. At that time, although I could play in all keys, more often than not I was held back to the same old... More > diatonic patterns and licks I had studied as a kid. As a solution, I decided to come up with a comprehensive method using approach notes that I could use to systematically solve these perceived weaknesses in my playing. I started by writing out every approach I could think of in every major and minor key. As I worked on, and added to, my collection of approaches, I saw the positive results in my performances.I really believe that working on these exercises has helped my playing immensely. I hope that you get as much out of these exercises as I have and that they will improve your performances. This book is 191 pages long and the patterns are transposed into all 24 major and minor keys. Visit my website at www.neffmusic.com for more information and sound clips.< Less

The II-V-I pattern is the most common pattern in jazz music. The more adept you are at playing this pattern in all the keys the better your facility in the jazz language. In the past 20 years I have... More > been keeping a notebook of these patterns.

There are 200 licks in this 204 page pdf file.(120 Major Licks and 80 Minor Licks) Each lick is transposed into all 12 keys using Finale and is easy to read.Trust me when I say that these things will keep you busy for a long time but once mastered your playing will improve incredibly.
