Pedaling or Scales & Technique Shedding (TT#9)

Pedaling or Scales & Technique Shedding (TT#9)


Pedaling Practice

Episode 9 of Talking Technique is up on notreble.com.
Have you ever looked for the “biggest bang for your practicing buck”? In this episode I give you an example how to maximize your practicing efforts. We are combining two different agendas in this episode: scale practice and technique shedding. And as we practice this we come across a useful and hip sounding application: pedal tones.
Pedaling adds excitement to solos and fills. It is important to place them well, so as to not disturb the song. But used with taste, it is a great sounding addition to your creative palette. And better be ready for it, because it sounds great at a fast tempo, and it’s good to shed that a bit.
Today’s tip can save you some trouble down the line. Don’t make this common mistake. It can lead to injury and does nothing to relieve a tired hand.
