(Book). The human voice expresses more than words, more than music. Vocal expression links the listener directly to another person's inner feelings, body, and soul. Keeping the voice healthy used to be as mysterious as the power of voice itself. Modern science has revealed much about the vocal mechanism and its health requirements, but simple information for the average voice user has remained hard to find and harder to trust. In Everyday Voice Care: The Lifestyle Guide for Singers and Talkers , respected voice therapist Joanna Cazden brings together a wealth of practical tips and advice to help keep your own expressive voice in top working order. Drawing from her experience as a singer, theater artist, and a licensed speech pathologist who has treated more than 1,000 voice patients, Cazden integrates up-to-date medical information with common-sense suggestions and sympathy for the demands of contemporary life. Chapters on food and drink, cold remedies, loud parties, travel, fitness routines, and when to see a doctor are complemented by notes on alternative health care and the spiritual dimension of vocal rest. This invaluable resource for voice and speech professionals, students, and teachers will answer even the age-old question of whether to put lemon or honey in your tea.

The Finger Funk Workbook Vol.1 by Anthony Vitti screenshot
PDF | MP3 | 132 MB
The Finger Funk Workbook was published in 1997. This book focuses on developing the techniques of great Finger style bass players from the past and present. We all know names like Jaco Pastorius, Rocco Prestia, Jeff Berlin & James Jamerson. But did you ever really think about what made each of these players great? That's a tough thing to describe, but it's one of those things you know when you hear it. Over the years, I have certainly studied these players and many others who are not as well known. I would sit for hours and figure out what made a particular player sound unique. When you think about it, after a while it is not what players can play that impresses and inspires you, It's how they play it. When you reach a certain level, it no longer becomes about whether or not you can play something. If you have worked on your chops, you can pretty much play anything you hear and so can any other good player. So why do some players work more than others or seem like they are more in demand? It all comes down to feel. How you play the notes. the level of confidence you have when you play. Your time. Great players are consistent, supportive and create an environment where the other players in the band can play their best. Think of your playing as a tool box. except for us it's techniques. Some players are great at very specific things.

When I wrote the grooves in this book, I took the best techniques of many great players and condensed them into one page grooves. you may listen to a whole Jaco tune and pull out one or two good lines. I have condensed those lines and fills into sixteen measures. Jaco had certain things that made him sound like Jaco. These are the kinds of things I tried to capture in these exercises. If you can capture the essence and techniques of the great players, you will start adding tools to your toolbox. It takes many tools to work on a car. If you have one wrench, you will soon find yourself very limited in what you can do. The same is true with technique and ideas in your playing. Some players are very good at one thing. We want to be very good at all things. When you start to master different fingering techniques, you will see that a good player uses many tools when they play every song. The lines in this book will challenge you at the highest level. They will add repertoire and fresh ideas to your playing.

The book comes with a CD. On the CD I'm playing all the grooves so you can hear how I want you to play them.You will go beyond the notes and really start thinking about how to get a great sound and what techniques it takes to mute certain lines. The focus is on the groove. Steady and consistent. being able to hold down a very difficult groove for a long period of time. I provide all the drum patterns that I'm playing with on the CD so that you can program up a drum machine and play the same thing. Trust me, there is no other book out there that focuses on groove playing like this. I wrote this material as practice material for myself over the years. i found that I needed a hard workout in a half hour or hour. I still warm up by picking one of these exercises everyday. These are the same materials that I use with my students at Berklee College of Music. I have refined and tuned them, so I know they work. this book has also been used by teachers at BIT, North Texas and The University of Miami just to name a few schools. you have nothing to lose, because if you don't like any of our material, you get your money back with no questions asked. That's how much confidence we have that you will like my material. I hope you will check the book out.

Translating For Singing: The Theory, Art and Craft of Translating Lyrics screenshot
P2P | PDF | 5.91MB
Translating for Singing discusses the art and craft of translating singable lyrics, a topic of interest in a wide range of fields, including translation, music, creative writing, cultural studies, performance studies, and semiotics. Previously, such translation has most often been discussed by music critics, many of whom had neither training nor experience in this area. Written by two internationally known translators, the book focusses mainly on practical techniques for creating translations meant to be sung to pre-existing music, with suggested solutions to such linguistic problems as those associated with rhythm, syllable count, vocal burden, rhyme, repetition and sound. Translation theory and translations of lyrics for other purposes, such as surtitles, are also covered.
