Neben meiner Arbeit als (Multi-)Instrumentalist liegen mit das Unterrichten sowie die kreative Arbeit im Tonstudio (Arrangieren, Aufnehmen, Mischen und Mastering von Musik) am Herzen.
I'm afraid this website is mostly in German but feel free to contact me. However, you can find some information in English if you browse through this website. I added English comments where I found it useful.
Please have a look at my video section!
Make a walking bass line swing! In today’s episode of “Swinging with a metronome”, it’s “But Not For Me”, written by George and Ira Gershwin. The metronome is set very slow to 32 bpm (!), and clicks on the 4th beat of every bar. Transcription of the first three choruses included!
Make an up-tempo walking bass line swing! In today’s episode of “Swinging with a metronome”, it’s the tune “Anthropology”, or, in fact, any tune which uses rhythm changes. The metronome is set to 59 bpm, and clicks on the 4th beat of every bar – and only then. Transcription included!
Make a walking bass line swing! Today, I’m combining a two-beat feel with a walking bass line. I’m playing 2 choruses, the metronome is on the 2nd and 4th beat. Transcription included!
