I'm gonna play a version of tune
up here and now, I'm not gonna stop and
consider or try to limit it in anyway.
I'm just gonna play what I hear
using the tools that we have so far.
And there's gonna be
a transcription of this available
as a resource that you can download and
your can look at.
I call them my little etudes.
That you can take a look at this and
I'm gonna annotate it.
I'm gonna put little notes
above it saying check
the arpeggiated triad I'm using here.
Or this is a fragment of a bop scale.
Look at these two approach
patterns in a row.
And so forth.
But I'd like to just play one at 140 beats
per minute, a comfortable swing tempo.
And play kind of uninhibited by
trying to stick to any one thing.
So let me do that.
You'll be able to download it.
It will have a lot of analysis in it.
At some point in this I'm gonna try and
hit most of the stuff that
we've talked about so far.
