January 26, 2013: Nick Page

Many thanks to Nick Page for an interesting session that included the following songs:

“West Coast Blues” by Wes Montgomery
“Road Song” by Wes Montgomery

Nick is passionate about effective use of practise time and opined that any practise session should have a goal be it small or large so that by its end you have learnt something new that can then be applied to your playing.

In this co-op session he considered taking a simple digital pattern and applying it to each chord of a song in turn, for example “3, 4, 5, 7”, “5, 3, Root” or “#9, b9, #9”. Different rhythms can be employed to create more interest.
