Mind the Gap!
Mind the Gap! is an easy showcase solo for late-beginners that is part of Jennifer Eklund’s Pronto Pizazz Volume 2 collection. This short study focuses on shifting positions in parallel fifths with various articulations, and includes a funky teacher accompaniment.
Midnight Blues, composed by Joanne Griffiths, is a contemplative, gentle solo, based on seventh-chords with a five-finger repetitive phrase. Variations on a theme, balancing the melody, harmonic structure and creating an atmosphere are all techniques required to play this mournful tune.
