Twelve-bar Workbook - to place

These are the Twelve-bar Diaries (TBD) and Do-able Boogies (DB) loitering on your desktop. Fix, amalgamate or dump.

DB_New_Orleans_style - fast

This is a solo (can be a bit slower!) // or THIS IS NOT A SOLO – just put up the riff for a sample riff to practice - self-confessed Mr Musicarta 'work in progress'.

DB_New_Orleans_style

TBD_03-01-15 (New Orleans style?) SOLO - easy-ish/slow one

TO PRACTICE. This is a 16-bar New Orleans-style performance solo. Or is Fats Domino.

TBD_03-01-15

DB Two-Part 16-11-14

With MMYT vid. http://youtu.be/NMH9gonzU4w

This is the one that starts like the Kinks. Write MS, good to go. NB vid is MP-only – no hands. Teaching vid could be scrolling Finale plus …

DB_Two-Part_16-11-14

DB_Walking_bass_and_NDBs

This is a solo to work up and slot in as a real-life example of how good a pianist MTBPS can make you! Only need three verses and an ending...

DB_Walking_bass_and_NDBs

TBD_08-11-14 – swung, thirds, run-ups

This is thirds and very like Mod_8_straight-n-fast but swung quavers and has the developing run-ups – shown in the .cpr (2).

TBD_08-11-14

TBD_08-12-14 (MP thirds two-parter)

Tricky syncopation - not for the faint-hearted. Accompaniment pattern, therapeutic groove to spend 5-10 minutes in. Potential for 'in-between' melody of snatches.

TBD_08-12-14

TBD 11-12-14 (two-part unison study)

Straying into Pentatonics territory… Quick and cheap though. Definitely 'study' - how are you going to name all these things?

TBD_11-12-14

TBD 23-01-15

A simple stomp - practically ready to go. Straight eights but triplet sixteenths. Finalise the few odd contentious notes, put rall in .cpr and go.

TBD_23-01-15

TBD 06-12-14 NOT A BOOGIE

Not a twelve-bar at all - a I-IV-I bash 'in three places'. For the Key chords playlist. Modulate it!
