​​​​Modules & Tunes




This is a Melody Moment for the B-part of Indifference.  Also included is a double-time triplet variation that makes a good exercise at different speeds.  Difficult.  Also, I changed part of it since the video, so make sure to ask about that in the workshop.

This is a THEORY and playing module that provides a good way to learn the AMP system understanding Dm for both GUITAR & MANDOLIN/violin.  Exercises & Video Backup Tracks up to 230 bpm provides practice and improvisation opportunities.

These videos provide several "VIDEO BACKUP TRACKS" for Besame Mucho that includes an audible melody to learn by ear, and several speeds.  The main key is Cm, but other keys for singing include Am & Dm.  Non-jazz students should capo & use Am for right key.

Melody Moment:  This is the  melody for A and B parts with one variation on B part.  This is the version of Salt Creek demonstrated in the Wintergrass Prep workshops. This version can be used for all instruments.; it is taken from a fiddle version
