A full, real live jazz combo is there with which you can practice and play 24/7.The first, Bits and Pieces 1, has a range of notes from D to B (clarinet pitch) and is a really cool melody with swing 8s.Bits and Pieces 2 pushes you to play E to D (clarinet pitch) with a more rhythmically sophisticated melody in a Latin feel with straight 8s.The third Bits and Pieces 3, has a Latin straight 8 feel first time through and a cool swing second time. The note range is the same as Bits and Pieces 2 but you are extended because there is a more chromatic flavour to the new melody.introducing you to to some sharps and flats.Dont worry - you can slow down the melody and the backing track, isolate difficult sections and work at your own pacewith or without the melody playing, with or without the accompaniment playing.
