Why I'm MeToday I had a jazz band final for the class. We had to play "A Song For My Father" Our arrangement was one time through the head, and improv, and another head. For those of you who arn't in jazz band ill explain it in lamemans terms. The head is the main melody of the song, and an improv is a made up solo that goes along with key changes and fits in with the head and what the backgrounds are doing. So we played the melody through once, then took the repete and did an on the spot solo that was made up, then played through the melody one more time. It was our final, and we were being graded so since nothing else exciting happened, I'll tell you about the grading scale. We had to pick up on the key changes and emphasise the first, third, and seventh note. What that means is that every time the peice changed sharps or flats, we had to emphasise the first, third, and seventh note of the scale that we were in. Well thats about it, I don't know if thats what other people write about or not but its me, so let me know if it was boring, or what I could do to improove it next time. Well until then, bye!
