Party Dance Mix

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 by

Here is Party Dance Mix to play along to.

Important bits: rhythms and off beats, the drum line, not getting lazy because it isn’t a “serious” piece, keeping the staccato short, not letting the tempo drag


Can’t Stop The Feeling

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 by

This is Can’t Stop The Feeling, to play along to.

Important bits: bass line, keeping the feel poppy and light, playing the correct syncopated rhythms, coming together in unison at the end.

Enjoy!
