04 Dave Marks Post Xmas Blues bass Wavs
ISF 04 wav
the January 2010 Issue of Bass Guitar Magazine I wrote a piece called
'The Post Xmas Blues' to tie in with a series of lessons I had written in 2009 on playing over the Jazz Blues form.
tune is quite tricky - it has a rhythmically complex head and is at
quite a bright tempo. Also, if you want to double the keyboard solo,
your chops need to be in good shape :-)
It's an ideal tune to use
an audition, as it shows a good grasp of improvisation in the walking
sections, and the solos mean you can demonstrate technical fluidity.
The files here include:
The Full band track.
A backing track with the bass removed.
I hope you enjoy the tracks.
