The goal with this LEVEL III instrumental is to continue to build upon the Level I & Level II versions of this song thatyou have memorized. It’s quite likely that you will need a minimum of a year of experience before attempting this. The new techniques you will use are dirty notes, ornamental bending, vamping and the split-4 block. Some reminders are, everything except the chords should be played using tongue blocking and tongue switch to play hole #1 without moving your jaw if you can. Memorize the Tempo, Form, Groove, Key & Start and ending signal. (TFGKS) Note the general page dynamic markings of s=soft, M=Moderate, L=LOUD! There are three different types of practice tracks and each has 4 tempos. Start with tracks 17-20 (1/5) and use tracks 21-24 (1/X/5) when you want to add a new chorus (page). Even though the track has the counting already recorded, you MUST practice counting and signaling in unison with the
voice on the recordings! It is always better to say the name of the soloist if you know it. Don’t say “guitar” if the soloist is not a guitar player or if the guitar player doesn’t want to solo!!!
Your goal is to make the notes the same volume and sustain the same amount as close as you can. . . .
