Bass day (1h 20m)

  • Chord tones (Phil Mann)
    • All triads (major / minor / diminished / augmented) in all inversions around the cycle of 4ths at 70bpm — 30m
    • Major 7th chords in all inversions around the cycle (without click, then at 50bpm) — 15m
    • Minor 7th chords in all inversions around the cycle (without click, then at 50bpm) — 15m
  • Walking bass lines (Scott Devine)
    • Partido Alto pattern + improv over jazz standard played with Latin groove (Be My Love by Nikolaus Brodzsky) — 20m
    • Uptempo Cha cha cha over Miles Davis’ stuff that turned out to be too hard, so I switched back to Partido over simpler song :)

Observations

Seems like I’m finally getting a grip on inversions! Yay! Also trying to adjust session time a bit to make some room for production stuff I have going on. But keeping the 5-min rest in the middle though!
