BEATLES BASSLINES - AND SOUNDSLICE TECHNOLOGY
The Ballad Of John And Yoko is one of the featured tutorials from my latest collection in the Working Basslines series. You can find the info page for that volume here:
And I've chosen this volume to introduce SoundSlice technology to my library of song tutorials. (All of the existing libraries will be backdated over the upcoming two to three months.)
The static scores in the tutorial above each video are how I USED to do things. Going forward I'll be using Soundslice Technology to provide interactive notation that you can play and hear EXACTLY how it sounds for each song segment.
Other things you can do include:
- Add a metronome to the playback of the score
- Slow it down (or speed it up) without changing pitch
- Loop one, two or more bars as many times (and as fast or slow as you want!)
- Change key
- Change the midi instrument sound.
Below is a screencast video I made of the Soundslice Technology being used. It's short (around 3 minutes) - so click play and check it out!
