Post Chapman Stick Video - All of Me (Score included)
Happy Monday, folks! I hope all is well, and everybody is enjoying a really sunny Monday! :D

I thought I would "revisit" a tune I haven't played in a while. "All of Me" (The Jazz standard) which is a cool tune that features a bunch of tricky little things. I spent an hour or so on this particular arrangement, and while it's not perfect I do think it's good enough to share as one representation of "Pop Baroque" type playing as per Emmett Chapman's Free Hands book. Oh man, it is SO much easier to play this tune now than when I first tried it a year or so ago... Maybe I'll keep this one and develop it into a "piece". There's still some stuff to be worked on (And always will be!), but it's "all right" I think... :D

The toughest part of this tune was the 1/4 note triplets over the 8th note sequence (That sort of sequence is not something I am terribly fond of, however it is a big part of the Stick vocabulary and a very useful tool so it's where I begin a piece!). I included a score of this arrangement, if you dig it lemme know!

Maybe I'll post a few other videos of the same tune with the different accompaniment ideas that I practice, heck maybe I'll do a polished version later with a solo too, I dunno...

Anyways, here it is!

Hey guys, thanks for checking it out, and of course the kind words! Much appreciated, fellas!

Yeah, I can put a tune together pretty quickly now if I need to; it may not be the most brilliant arrangement, but I can do it. Getting to a point of where I could do that was very important to me, (that and balancing the ratio of practice time vs tangible results.) Some days I have very little practice time, so it's absolutely critical that I can still move forward even though the practice time might be in very small bits. Leveraging existing knowledge, tools and attributes etc etc.

I score everything that I practice; from now on if I post a video of something, I'll share a score too! Awright, back to practice...
