Jazz Figure Reading


練習閱讀爵士大樂隊 Figures (指總譜中需要以適當的個人風格和音樂方式突出、襯托的位置),最好的方法是不斷的將它們寫出來,然後嘗試以不同的節奏速度閱讀。第一件我會努力的事,是確保自己可以像小號手一樣將節奏唱出來;或是以類似爵士樂歌手的吟唱方式(這讓我想起 Sarah Vaughn 和 Ella Fitzgerald )。如果你以鼓的方式唱出來(短、斷音),這樣就不能搖擺 (Swing ) 了!

 

下面是一些例子。當在爵士鼓上演練這些練習的時候,會同時以 Swing 的節奏把這些 Figures 唱出來(即使你可能不知道具體的音高),並且會像隨著大樂隊演奏時一樣加入些過門 ( Fill-ins )。別忘記多花時間聆聽一些大樂隊巨星如 Mel Lewis, Buddy Rich, Harold Jones, Jeff Hamilton, Peter Erskine, Ed Shaughnessy, John Riley 和 Steve Fidyk 作參考。
