Closed finger walking

Discussion in 'Jazz Technique [DB]' started by Dave Irwin, Mar 7, 2005.

  1. If this is in the newbies section, my apologies... I couldn't find it.

    I'm looking for some more ideas for patterns when working in closed finger keys... You know, Ab, Db.......

    I'm particularly interested in patterns covering the same chord for 4-8 bars

    Free resources on the web preferred...

    All the same ideas apply to all of the keys. You just have to get comfortable shifting. The cool thing is that you're likely to stumble across new ideas in the different keys that you can take back to your 'regular' keys.

    If you work on your shifting slowly, relaxed and in tune, then when it comes time to play up to speed you'll find it's easy -- if you don't think about it too much.
