Thanks a lot, Yvonnick.
By working in variety-jazzy on french songs, a few years ago, with karaoke playbacks written in E, D, or A major, I made a lot of progress for these tonalities with sharps at the key.
Concerning my rhythm, you are of course right. I must work again the scales with the metronome. Unfortunately, I am very limited by my…[Read more]
Thank you very much for putting the lyrics here.
Bravo ! It is a very very beautiful song. Very lot of love in it.
And, because I just listened to it 3 times more, in fact, I find that your playing is in the spirit of the writting and of the way of the singer to sing it.
I sincerely wish a very happiness life to your son Jesse and of…[Read more]
Very beautiful melody, beautiful music. I like it very much.
The singer is also very good.
Concerning your harmonica, it is also very good. BUT !… I think your playing is not fluid enough. I’m sure you could have done better.
Because I am French (nobody is perfect !), I have difficulties to understand the lyrics which are sung. Could…[Read more]
I have begun to work on this solo.
I am not very fond of Miles Davis, but I must say that his swing for this solo is really very good.
All his art is to make a swing with eight notes with a ratio between 1/2 and 1/3. I rather think that it is nearer 1/2 than 1/3.
It’s a very good exercise for me because I think that my swing is too much…[Read more]
It seems to me a good idea. For instance, since a few week ago I listen, almost daily, to concerts concerning Toots Thielemans. I must say that I find his playing awesome, he really impress me a lot. So I have certainly a lot of links to suggest. But there is not only Toots, not only the harmonica, all the jazz musiciens are very…[Read more]
Your question make me think that you don’t listen enough to what happens in the universe of the chromatic harmonica players.
As far as I am concerning, I chiefly listen to jazz players.
So, have a listening to very great players like : first, of course, Yvonnick Prene, then Toots Thielemans, Claude Garden, Laurent Maur, Wim Dijkgraaf,…[Read more]
I never tried to play with a Meisterklass 14 holes. But, in my opinion, it is to much heavy, due to its metallic comb.
The Saxony-12 is too much heavy too, for the same reason.
I think that the 14 holes is a good choice for one who absolutely needs to have access to the low Bb. Like that, he also has access to the highest notes…[Read more]
Concerning the chromatic, there is a multitude of solutions to have the low note Bb:
– Saxony Orchestra (or perhaps others) : 12 holes that starts at the G grave.
– 14 and 16 holes.
– chromatic 12 holes tuned in Bb. But the high notes rise less high than on a chromatic C (the problem is also the same for the Saxony…[Read more]
Bravo for your job.
And thank you for your explanations about EastTop. I prefer not to buy an EastTop chromatic if it needs to pass time “to do mechanical work” on it.
I have never played diatonic, but I think that when we try to play melodies in different tones, we quickly see the limitations of the diatonic.
And it’s even worse when you want to play some jazz, with themes that require improvisations that modulate in several tones.
I know there are harmonicists who manage to play almost chromatic…[Read more]
