Fun with drone tracks

I enjoy crafting harmony tracks with which to practice. They are not usually jazz, but instead are more ethereal.

Here’s one I like because the harmony slowly becomes more complex and ear-stretching.

Things to do with them:

  • Sing some scales and melodies over it in order to get your ear in tune
  • With your instrument run F major scale up and down its full range. Vary the dynamics and articulation in musical ways.
  • Do the same with C major scale (F lydian).
  • Do the same with Bb major scale (F mixolydian).
  • Play a melody you know really well in F or C or D or any key.
  • Find and play the colorful notes in the harmony.
  • Improvise

Most of all, have fun with it!
