(10 Innovative Piano Solos Using Major and Minor Scales)
- Alfred Music Publishing
Learning and practicing scales just got more fun and practical! Each one-octave scale is introduced and four short scalar exercises are offered to prepare the student for an original solo in the given key. Each solo is intermediate in level, modern in style, upbeat, and challenging. Keys covered include five Major keys and their minor relatives: C Major, A minor, F Major, D minor, G Major, E minor, B-flat Major, G minor, D Major and B minor. The enclosed CD offers each solo in three versions: solo with orchestrated background, orchestrated background only at a slower practice tempo, and orchestrated background only at performance tempo. Titles include: Boogie Woogie Rock; Secret Mission; Falling Leaves; Midnight Crawl; Steel Drum Band; Egyptian Journey; Winding River and more.
