なんとなくわかっちゃう

オーストラリアの大学生のブログより

On the Giant Steps front, I have memorised the 1st chorus of Coltrane's solo and have started taking it around 12 keys, in particular the lead in bar of the solo which he repeats a number of times. I'm playing it at about 240bpm. The Kenny Solo I have learnt it the way that Will Vinson told me I should learn it which is all aurally and with the CD at speed. I still make mistakes on a few of the lines and occasionally forget whole chunks, and it is much harder, but I most definately feel the benefit from doing it this way.

まあウィルビンソンは一般的なこと言ってるだけともいえるけど、個人的には、彼とか、マークターナー、ベンファンゲルダーとかは他のプレイヤーと比べてもものすごい数のコピーをしてきたんだろうなと思っている(この三人が似てるとか言うつもりは一切ない)。

 

今どんな演奏しててもしてきたかどうかはよくわかっちゃう。
