An in-depth study on harmony and accompaniment on the violin.
The violin is traditionally used as a melodic instrument; as such, harmonic confidence is generally a weak point for most fiddlers. This lesson series expands upon the concepts covered in the two Tim Kliphuis instructional videos (Hot Jazz Violin Vol.1 and 2) published by HyperHip Media.
In this first volume of Jazz Violin Harmony & Accompaniment, instructor Tim Kliphuis guides the student through a series of arpeggio exercises in order to build a solid harmonic foundation for accompaniment.
He demonstrates these concepts on both, a minor song, and a major song, respectively.
Summary of the lessons:
The main performance examples are meticulously transcribed in PDF notation, and lessons include detailed analyses of each concept.
Once the student has mastered these concepts, he/she should be able to use this knowledge on almost any other common jazz standard.
Backing tracks and extra mp3 support material are included in this lesson package.
