In this fourth lesson of the Approach Note Freedom series, I teach on how to work through the approach note velocity material. In this lesson, I assign three more approach note patterns to a major triad and talk about how to practice them around the circle of fifths so that you can play them in every key. I also show you how to combine these approaches with the material from Lesson 1-3. I assign a few more ways to practice the approaches you have worked on so far as well as a few looped patterns. These patterns are fantastic for improving your technique. I demonstrate on my tenor sax how to practice the material and give tips and insight on how to use it and internalize it.
When you are done with this series of lessons you will be amazed at the technique and vocabulary you will have gained through this process. In order to get the most out of this lesson you will need the “Approach Note Velocity” book as well as the preceding lesson in this series. (Audio & Video Lesson)
