Do not forget the blend ring.4- When replacing the tips, screw them on 1/2 way and apply a drop of super glue to the threads and continue to tighten on the tip until it is snug against the cover.The covers are very important, so the tighter they are the better.

Exercises, Etudes and Concert PiecesA Creative Guide for the Contemporary Improvising ViolinistThe main reason for me having written Exercises, Etudes and Concert Pieces is to add different material to the portfolio of the improvising violinist including new techniques, lines, and rhythmic patterns in harmonic settings as well as open settings.Classical skills are often missing in the Jazz Violin field. For that I applied classical techniques and brought them into a Jazz context. Part I is a guide how to practice a scale and be able to use it in your improvisations. The concert etudes and concert pieces are a collection of technical material that I use freely in my improvisations, so it´s not just exercises for practicing special techniques on the violin; I also show how to use these in compositions and improvisational material.This book is not meant to be an all-inclusive guide or a pamphlet for the improvising string player. It is meant to open up the imagination of string players for new ways of playing their instrument and using these techniques in the context of solo or group improvisation.All the great improvisers had one thing in common: They were able to develop their own language within the style of the music of the day.Nombre de pages :76

For 30 years, drummer, author, and songwriter Neil Peart had wanted to write a book about ´´the biggest journey of all in my restless existence: the life of a touring musician.´´ Finally, the right time, and the right tour. In the summer of 2004, after three decades, 20 gold albums, and thousands of performances spanning four continents, the band Rush embarked on a celebratory 30th Anniversary World Tour. The ´´R30´´ tour traveled to nine countries, where the band performed 57 shows in front of more than half a million fans. Uniquely, Peart chose to do his between-show traveling by motorcycle, riding 21,000 miles of back roads and highways in North America and Europe - from Appalachian hamlets and Western deserts to Scottish castles and Alpine passes. Roadshow illuminates the daunting rigors of a major international concert tour, as well as Peart´s exploration of the scenic byways and country towns along the way. His evocative and entertaining prose carries the listener through every performance and every journey, sharing the bittersweet reflections triggered by the endlessly unfolding landscape. Observations and reflections range from the poignantly, achingly personal to the wickedly irreverent. Part behind-the-scenes memoir, part existential travelogue, Roadshow winds through 19 countries on both sides of the Atlantic, in search of the perfect show, the perfect meal, the perfect road, and an elusive inner satisfaction that comes only with the recognition that the journey itself is the ultimate destination. The inner workings of the tour, the people Peart works with and the people he meets, the roads and stages and ever-changing scenery - all flow into an irresistible story. 1. Language: English.
