The Story...

I got to play "Birdland" Need I say more?

Well I will... it was here in this class ( yes it was a class for credit in my high-school...amazing ) where I learned so much about becoming a working musician.... How to groove with a drummer.... How to make a dynamic arch of intensity walking under someone soloing...How to understand chord theory..make triads...7ths...9ths..minor thirds... and how to use all of that to make my OWN bass lines.   

Magical! 

The first tune I did this on was Good King Wenceslas .. in one 16 bar section .. I sat at home with pen and paper and I composed ( I...com..posed!!! ) a 16 bar walking bass line created using my new-found theory knowledge.  

Magical!
