Being able to tune your instrument is a necessary skill for any cello player. It may seem obvious, but you'd be surprised by how many people there are who don't even know how to tune a cello properly. It's so important! 

Not only does it ensure that your cello is at the same, and therefore correct, pitch as other cellos, but it also helps train your ear to “hear” the proper notes. A cello that is just slightly out of tune, is still out of tune, and when played in concert with other instruments the difference is incredibly noticeable. The good news, however, is that tuning a cello is a relatively easy and straightforward adventure.

What is a Suss Chord?

Learning to play jazz saxophone has many components, and one of those is the suspended, or suss, chord. It is a dominant chord where you either remove its major third or else replace it typically with a perfect fourth that is a half step higher or a major second. You will most often hear suss chords in popular, folk, and of course, jazz music.

bluegrass fiddle kickoffs

Bluegrass music was built upon historic performances by the creators of the style: Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Vassar Clements, Chubby Wise, Benny Martin, and many others. We study those performances to master the style. And in Bluegrass music, as in Bebop, Rock, and many other genres, quoting a performance from the original recording is considered not only a good idea, it’s a badge of knowledge and belonging, and a way of connecting the past with the present. Knowing these genre-defining solos can help you develop subtle and nuanced musical commentaries on the original solo, and help you create your own accurate, original take on the entire style. We're releasing one solo a week for 15 weeks starting now!
