[11] “Stride Bass Meets Satie”

Tue. Apr. 28, 2020 ~ 4:30 pm EDT

Thu. Mar. 26, 2020 ~ 4:30 pm EDT

Open Me for Some Important Notes

After this session, we all realized that the session would have been easier if everyone had the following little map

1. PLAY the 2516-2511* Progression in the Key of C for 8 Bars: Dm  G  C  Am  –  Dm G  C  C 

2. “Transition” in the relative minor while changing your levers or pedals (change F’s to F#’s) for 8 bars:  Am 

3. PLAY Ithe 2516-2511* Progression in the Key of G for 8 Bars: Am  D  G  Em – Am  D G  G

4. “Transition” in the relative minor while changing your levers (change F#’s to F’s) for 8 bars: Em

Rinse & Repeat (but don’t actually rinse)

We realize that we’d like to have a more gracious transition in future sessions but everyone liked knowing that you can modulate into a new key using the “two-five-one”

*in official musical writing this would probably look more like this:  ii  V  I   vi   –   ii   V   I   I
