THE BLUES:
GRAMMAR, MORPHOLOGY, ORTHOGRAPHY
 
THE PRACTICAL COURSE FOR BEGINNERS
FOR ALL OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
 
      All the material is very simple and logical, so there is no problem even for those who have never played by ear. All exercises are interconnected, so study the material gradually, without missing a single exercise. Each exercise is accompanied by a short annotation, which helps to repeat a two-bars phrase. Do not fear to make mistakes, because mistakes do deeper memorizing information. Should not to bring the performance of each exercise to perfection, is quite enough understanding of the logic of melodic construction and to a degree learning the fingering combinations. Each table contains three options for various musical instruments: the top line for flute, trombone, violin, guitar, piano and other instruments in tune C; the middle line for alto saxophone and baritone saxophone in tune Eb; the bottom line for trumpet, soprano saxophone and tenor saxophone in tune Bb. As a result of the course you will learn how to build their own sensible musical phrases, sentences, and you can use them to tell all sorts of stories in the language of Music using The Blues Improvisation Concept.
