Brilliant suggestion with the tagging Moritz.
That ties into another idea from a student, which would be to create a page which lists all lessons on a particular jazz standard. The tune Autumn Leaves for example, has been covered in many different sections, and so a tag system would allow us to create this additional level of categorisation, and organisation.
I will be implementing your suggestion
That’s brilliant, I’d recommend taking Jovino’s groove around all 12 keys.
It’s simpler than the examples in my Bossa course, which is why it’s great to have a specialist like Jovino who knows how to break down the groove into it’s simplest form.
We are making sure that his upcoming course is catered to the beginner level so I’m sure you will enjoy it.
Rootless voicings and rootless 251s are important for the Latin style of playing. I’d recommend practice these every time you sit at the piano.
They do take a lot of work, so don’t be put off by slow progress there, remember to play though jazz standards with them in your right hand, then your left hand… this is like a mini-etude, and just as important as simply drilling through them key after key. After all, you want to be able to see them on a score, and then find the voicing quickly and easily.
I’ll email you as soon as the Latin lessons are ready.
