TT09 Today’s ‘Traditional Tuesday’ video is a combination of two simple stickings which you can use to execute swung 8th note phrasing. In the first part (#9a) I demonstrate downbeat and upbeat accents over a two bar pattern. In the second part (#9b) I use this formula to interpret the 16 bar exercise played at two different tempos.

Q: What is Traditional Tuesday?
A: ‘Traditional Tuesday’ is a collection of improvisations and exercises documenting my practice of traditional grip.
From 1984 to 2009 I played predominantly traditional grip and now I have a regular practice/recording/teaching space I thought It’d be a good opportunity to dust off the cobwebs and get my chops back. It’s also an excuse to work in my mixing filming and editing skills. I hope you enjoy them.
