Write your own Charts

Post by foal30 » Sat Sep 06, 2008 8:26 pm

scoff and laugh comrades but for analysis and actually helping the brain remember *BANNED* (as opposed to good ol muscle memory)charting out your lines is a winner.

I've found it handy as a stepping stone to doing other peoples charts and for writing parts for session musicians. It considerably helps clarify rhythmic concepts too, and this can help solidify or challenge personal style in a groove sense.

It's not really about how simple the line or song is, it's more about the discipline of doing the chart and the thinking of how you came to assemble it in the first place. If anyone here does off the cuff sessions too I'd like to know how handy the pencil and paper is 5 minutes before the tape rolls.
