This lesson puts you IN THE STUDIO! You’ve just been asked to play on a recording session which will feature a new smooth jazz/funk song entitled “Downtown Funk.” The producer has sent you the sheet music and the track in advance of the gig. You will learn all of the necessary preparation: understanding how to read the chart and why it is so different from reading classical music; how to work and count through difficult rhythms; how to interpret and build great-sounding chords; how to practice the tune; scales you can use to solo over the chords; how to select your sounds and what is meant by the expression “splitting your keyboard.” This lesson is packed with in-depth explanations and has everything you need to get ready to jam along with this great track!
