'I Get a Kick Out Of You' - Jazz piano tutorial

Add to EJ Playlist  'I Get a Kick Out Of You' - Jazz piano tutorial. This is a fairly simple to play version. It is in 3/4 instead of 4/4, and I have borrowed some harmonic ideas from the popular Jamie Cullum version. As usual, I have added a lot of annotations, keyboard view, and scrolling notation. I have taken lots of liberties with the original chords - but kept fairly faithful to the original melody. On my website, http://www.bush grafts.com along with over 300 tutorial videos to download, you will also find over 500 live played jazz piano midi files http://www.bush grafts.com/jazz /midi.htm All can be downloaded for free! The video of this is free to download on my website, and a printable transcription as on the video is on my DVD. . The transcription is also available for separate purchase at $1.20 - details on my website

'The Heather On The Hill' - Jazz piano tutorial

Add to EJ Playlist  This is another great ballad by Lerner and Loewe from 'Brigadoon' I played the first chorus as solo piano, then for the second half I created a backing track using Band in a Box 'Real Tracks' - great for creating a quick backing by just typing in the chords. About as realistic a drum and bass simulation as can be achieved in this sort of program. I will put the video and midi file (free to download) on my website at http://bushgraf ts.com. The transcription, the mp3 backing track, and the basic leadsheet that I used will be on my DVD, or can be purchased together for $1.20 from my website http://bushgraf ts.com/jazz/DVD buy.htm#transcr iptions

'Falling In Love With Love' (Rodgers and Hart) - jazz piano tutorial

Add to EJ Playlist  One of the great songs by Rodgers and Hart. Most play this in Bb, but I played this from a basic leadsheet in F, which is a more comfortable key for most female singers! It was originally written in 3/4 but many jazz musicians prefer 4/4. On this I played the first chorus freely in three, and then changed to 4/4. As usual, I have added a lot of annotations, keyboard view, and scrolling notation. I have taken lots of liberties with the original chords - but kept fairly faithful to the original melody. On my website, http://www.bush grafts.com along with over 300 tutorial videos to download, you will also find over 500 live played jazz piano midi files http://www.bush grafts.com/jazz /midi.htm All can be downloaded for free!

'Nature Boy' - jazz piano tutorial

Add to EJ Playlist  This is a tutorial on a jazz approach to the great song by Eden Ahbez, with some alternative harmonies to try. The basic leadsheet I used was from Sher Music's 'New Real Book No. 1' p231. I used one of the Rhodes sounds on my Nord piano 2, and played it with a swing rather than a straight 8th note latin feel. The first chorus is played freely - but I have adjusted the notation to fit correctly into a 32 bar form. It is not a considered or highly polished arrangement as such, but is intended more as a source of ideas for other improvising musicians - though many have taken these tutorials to be finished arrangements, and that is OK, though I have resisted the temptation to edit and polish the improvisation except for minor corrections. The first chorus could be played as a relatively easy piano solo. I have posted the video and midi files (free to download) on my website http://www.bush grafts.com and placed the transcription and bass and drums backing track on my DVD, and both are available together for ($1.20) - details here http://www.bush grafts.com/jazz /DVDbuy.htm#tra nscriptions
