Music as a Language: Victor Wooten at TEDxGabriolaIsland

It’s true I was born into a band,exceedingly literally, I mean that literally. When I was born, my four older brothers who were already playing music, knew that they needed a bass player( Laughter) to round out the family strip. I was born into that character. As I’m older I’m looking back right now , now that I’m called a teacher. When I look back on that, and how I was taught, I realized that I wasn’t really schooled. Which is why I say that music is a language; because if you think about your first language, for me, and perhaps most of us here might be English, so I’m just going to go with English. If you think about how you learned it, you recognise you weren’t taught it. Public simply spoke to you...

Blues Piano Licks : Blues Piano Easy Lick One

Hi, my name is Jonathan Wilson on behalf of Expert Village.com. And we’re learning thirty must-have blues piano links. These are easy ones and we’re starting with lick number one. Without further ado, let’s just get right to it. Here it is half tempo, with a metronome. Check out the notation, it goes like this. Okay, good starting point, not very complicated. Now, the only thing tricky about this one, if you’re just kind of a beginner piano player, sometimes those thirds can give you a little bit of trouble. Just practice. Take it very, very slowly. Don’t worry about the finger strength so much on these. Sometimes people, their fourth finger is usually your weakest finger when it comes to playing the piano.

If you can, in a situation like this, just kind of put those fingers down and use ...

The Ray Charles 12-Bar Blues Piano Lick – Piano Lesson

The Ray Charles 12-Bar Blues Piano Lick – Piano Lesson

Today’s lesson is on a Ray Charles blues progression from the song What I’d Say. This song features a lot of really cool stuff, we’ve got a sweet bass line in the left hand. We got some cool kind of pulsing chord movements in the right, and then we’ve got an awesome little (blues piano music) lick that caps off the whole thing. So we’re gonna look at each part of those. So let’s start at the beginning with that bass line. The bass line’s really simple. It consists of, again it’s this 12-bar pattern. It’s in the key of E. (piano chord) So that means we have three chords to work with. We got an E chord.

(piano note) We got an A. (piano note) And we got a B...

HOW TO PLAY MUSIC BY EAR (ear training for musicians)

( “Senorita” by Justin Timberlake) – Hi, YouTube, this is Julian Bradley. Today I’m going to talk about ear train. So I’ve got some advice which will speed up the process. First of all you need to get in the habit of listening to music in another way. Every piece of music you hear you need to be thinking what are the intervals? Whether it’s a trail on the radio, in a club, someone’s phone travelling off, a police siren travelling by, the fowls singing you want to be thinking, okay, what is that interval? What are those notes? Second of all my advice is when you’re starting out to try and stick to one key and to work in that key.

Doing that will construct you recognize a lot quicker that they’re the same notes that are coming up and the same chords, particularly in pop music, it’s the same ...

Life is easy. Why do we make it so hard? | Jon Jandai | TEDxDoiSuthep

Translator: Jelena Vukovic Reviewer: Ivana Korom There is one phrase that I have always wanted to say to everyone in “peoples lives”. That phrase is “Life is easy.” It’s so easy and recreation. I never concluded like that before. When I was in Bangkok, I felt like life is very hard, very complicated. I was born in a poor village on the Northeastern of Thailand And when I was a kid, everything was merriment and easy, but when the TV met, numerous people came to the village, they said, “You are poor, you need to chase success in your life.

You got to get to Bangkok to pursue success in your life.” So I find bad, I find good. So I needed to go to Bangkok. When I went to Bangkok, “its just not” very fun. You need to learn, examine a lot and handiwork very hard, and then you can get success...
