What are your favorite ways to mix up your scale practicing? Do you have a really cool method you use? One of the coolest breakthroughs for me (and many players) was learning melodies played on other instruments - anything ranging from horn lines to piano parts, even vocal melodies. The conveniences of the fretboard are what keep your ideas...convenient. Break away!
Here's a quick taste of what to expect at the #choppingsamples#workshop I'm hosting @energeanyc on Tuesday August, 8th. In this clip I'm showing examples of how to get some grit on your drums and what to do in case your lower end frequencies start acting like they all want the limelight. Cut the low end back with an #autofilter in @ableton #live 😎🤷🏽♂️
NEW PODCAST: In Conversation with Phil Mann – Essential Slap Bass

This is a repost.. Chi Town, Whats Up? Its always a little emotional when even just talking about the Windy City.. My Father was Killed on those streets.. I was robbed of the opportunity to hear my father..smell his scent..feel his presence..etc. That ability to destroy other blacks threw violence has been recycled over and over again, threw out the South Side of the Chi.. It was designed decades ago for black males to be in the image that we see our black males in today, all over Chicago. The ignorance..self hate..apathy..violence..feel and stench of death, by black on black murder... it has always been by design.. to be this way. We have a story to tell.. Its a very non fictional story.. From the Wild hundreds.. to the low end.. to out West.. It pains me deeply today.. to see and hear about the self destruction that is going on in Chicago.. But its always been that way. The housing projects in the 60's.. 70's.. 80's.. 90's.. were way worse then what you see or hear about.. Dont be decieved.. Allah(swt) You directed my mother to remove me from that world.. But I insisted on returning to what I see today as death. Not knowing better then.. We have a serious story.. Its truth!! To all of the People's Every One under the Almighty Nation.. And To everyone under the Folks Nation.. No matter what group. We love you all. LK. GDN.BPS. Mickey Cobra Stones. BG's. Vice Lords. BDN. MLDN. SC. Every Street Organization in Chicago. Even if you are a new version under the old version. No matter the street name..the street number.. We love you all. Think about this. Out of true love for Chief Malik(Jeff Fort). And King David. Do you believe that they want you shorties killing eachother like that? Do the BD's and GD's believe that King David Would want you all killing eachother like that? There is a hidden hand that has orchastrated all of what you see in Chicago.. We might as well be laughing with those who have King Hoover. And Chief Malik, imprisoned. It's a new day.. But The slave masters designed it like what we see.. Dont let their drugs and alcohol, distort your perception. Anton Islam.
