Dixieland delights - jazz etudes features 10 popular numbers from this fantastic period of music. The etudes include - Ain't misbehaving, All of me, Big Butter & Egg man, I can't give you anything but love, Just a closer walk with thee, Stardust, Struttin' with some babecue, The Sheik of Araby, When the Saints go marching in & When you're smiling! All the etudes have 2 choruses except Stardust, which has 1, When the Saints and Just a closer walk with thee have 4. Although the etudes are written over the chord changes of Dixieland classics, the etude itself is written to challenge intermediate players, using a good variety of jazz language. This book is in concert pitch and as a result would suit Guitar players, Violin, Piano.... Here is a video of me playing 'Big Butter & Egg man' etude from the book - VIDEO

Dixieland delights has been created to help give aspiring jazz musicians a starting point. If you are an intermediate player on your instrument then you will know how technically challenging it is to try and even attempt a jazz solo transcription by a master jazz player. So, jazz etudes has created a book of well loved jazz standards for you to hone your skills. By practicing these etudes you will 

  • Improve your technique

  • Improve your time - I recommend playing these along with the ireal pro app, you can change the tempo and style of backing track (even the key if you want to transpose the etudes)

  • These etudes are full of commonly used jazz language that isn’t too challenging. By copying phrases that you like and transposing into other keys, you will be developing your own jazz vocabulary and improvisation abilities.

  • By learning an etude from memory, you will develop your own musical memory, as well as developing the ability to play syncopated rhythms
