Rhythm in Motion - Episode 22 More Beatbass and Beat of the Week #10
James talks more about beatbass and offers a couple helpful tips for choosing songs where this technique is effective.
Being chosen as the opening band for a more established act can mean great things in your music career. You will get to play for larger audience than you might draw at your own show - an audience who might then get excited about turning out for your next headlining set. An added bonus is that peppered in amongst those potential new fans might be members of the press and industry who may become contacts for future opportunities.
All of those good things could evaporate pretty quickly if you violate some of the unwritten rules of being the opening act, though. Some of these rules might a touch frustrating, but take the long term view - making a good impression now is money in the bank for your future music career.
For those of you who may have missed an episode or two, here is the entire Rhythm in Motion Vocal Percussion video tutorial series to date. Hope you enjoy it!
James talks about the importance of breathing in vocal percussion and demonstrates a couple of patterns to help you incorporate interesting breath sounds into your beats.
