What Did You Miss This Week (Week 497 #541)

Ear Training!!!

While Joe was away this week, Highway RickEy spent some time with an ear training technique focused on hearing blues scale chord tones and identifying them through singing and playing them. You can't improvise without knowing the notes at your disposal and how they sound and feel...and you need to be able to play the things in your head, so this is a great way to improve your improvisation through training.

h/t to performers last night who did a piece in memory of the legendary Cajun singer/songwriter/performer D. L. Menard who passed away this week.

Class Notes

  • Joe will be back next week. Classes proceed as normal.
