Part 3 of Tom's Modern Legato series is finally here and is his biggest tutorial yet. In this 1 hour 50min video lesson, Tom breaks down his methods and thought processes for creating his trademark flowing legato lines, bringing together all of the knowledge and technical skills from parts 1 and 2 into a fantastic resource for developing a modern legato style in any genre. Tom focuses on a detailed but easy to understand fragment approach to line construction and also tackles rhythmic awareness and accuracy, utilising melodic minor scales/modes and using legato in changes based playing. The tutorial includes 14 pages of lines and transcribed solos (in both standard and 4ths tunings) plus backing tracks to practice with. There are hundreds of lines to get to grips and analyse here. Combined with parts one and two this makes for the most comprehensive legato course available!
The rock/pop band The Arrows from South Africa traveled to Paris to work with producer Fab Dupont from NYC to collaborate on "Words to Say" - taking it from from a home studio demo to mix-ready production on camera. This tutorial will show you how to add color and life to basic productions and bring songs to life. Fab gives his best tips and tricks for making tracks sound radio ready by using a mixture of live recording, synth layering, vocal tracking and detailed editing - all intermediate to advanced digital and analog techniques He strategically adds and subtracts from an already decent sounding home studio demo to create a hit sounding record over the course of a 2 day session in Paris. This is how records get made, instrument by instrument, part by part. Sit in the session and see what it's like to build a track with professionals.
