The fabulous and talented Aimee Nolte breaks down some of the incredible riffs played by Oscar Peterson on one of the tunes from a favorite album of mine, Night Train. Aimee gives some fascinating insight and demonstrations of the techniques used by Oscar.
Corey demonstrates wonderfully how using inversions can completely transform the sound of your playing. Something I already do myself but I realise there is even more possibilities and options after watching this lesson.
Yet another lesson from the wonderful Warren. I’ve watched over and over again, replicating what Warren plays on my own piano, There are hundreds of gems in just the first ten minutes, some very tasteful licks, turnarounds, voicings and passing chords. Highly recommended!
Here’s a technique I’ve been working on myself, just experimenting with dominant chord voicings and applying various alterations to see what sounds good. Well, check out this video to get a headstart on sophisticated and jazzy V chords!
My latest discovery is the PrettySimpleMusic channel with some wonderful gospel lessons. Here’s an example where the instructor plays through all the 2-5-1 progressions in major and minor keys with some nice voicings. Nothing special there perhaps, but the soulful playing makes this video an essential watch and no doubt this is a very good practice routine.
