A dynamic and interactive course for the early-intermediate fiddle-player to start improvising with traditional swing and jazz styles.
Glaser begins with some intuitive call-and-response patterns, allowing you to build increasingly complex phrases at your own pace whilst your improvising confidence grows. The lesson is punctuated with some fascinating information, technical tips and essential elements of theory. Circle of fifths, 7ths, diminished chords, whole tone scales, bowing patterns and phrasing are all discussed in detail, creating a full vocabulary from which your musical imagination can blossom.
To put all the information into context, Glaser breaks down and analyses some significant violin solos including performances by Stephane Grappelli and Claude 'Fiddler' Williams. If you are looking for a way to make your fiddle-playing swing with that authentic jazz sound, look no further.
