So here we go with episode 3.... not the format I had hoped to get to with the interviews right now as this week has been insane. But I'm covering two great solos by Brad Mehldau and Michael Brecker. I'll post scans of the solos in here when I pick up a scanner this week. I'm also talking about commercial work (such as the gig I'm on right now) as well as some more things about process and marketing yourself as a musician. Enjoy!
As much as I dislike talking about euquipment, I am extremely happy with the gear I'm using right now, and this episode does feature a few things about it as I had some enquiries since last week's episode. And I'm featuring two transcriptions in this episode, one from Pat Metheny (jpg of transcription linked here) and one from Joey Calderazzo (jpg of transcription linked here) , as well as some more solo playing, and discussion of process. Enjoy!
Welcome to my first podcast. to get things going I'm playing a couple of tracks from my debut album as a leader, talking about why I made the move from the UK to the US, and playing a little and talking about the bass, about harmony, and all things music. I hope you enjoy, and look forward to hearing back from anyone who checks it out.
