New courses from the Soundslice community, June 2020

Though June’s just begun, there are already three new courses in our store made by musicians in the Soundslice community.

Waltz for Bill (@antoineboyermusic) — $6

‘Waltz for Bill’ is an original fingerstyle composition by the virtuoso guitarist Antoine Boyer, and is a tribute to one of his musical heroes. Antoine tells us:

“I composed ‘Waltz for Bill’ being inspired by Bill Evans’ deep musicality and fluent melodies. I used to listen his albums over and over again — he is one of the musicians I feel the most close to. I’m sure you will recognize the style of some of his compositions, like ‘Waltz for Debby’, which goes well with the guitar. So many little counterpoints are hidden in there; enjoy playing them!”

Jazz Vocabulary, 1st edition (@AnibalSeminario) — $0

We’ve been excited about this one. Anibal Seminario’s (free!) course is a collection of six jazz etudes for saxophonists. (We mentioned it’s free?) This course was originally a downloadable eBook from Anibal’s website, but it’s since been “sliced”, which means you can now play along with with Anibal, make loops, slow down the recording and transpose.

The etudes are melodic applications of arpeggios and modes that clearly outline the changes of the standards. Anyone interested in developing lines over chord tones would benefit from this etude pack — because the notes are transposable, you don’t need to play saxophone to absorb the information. You can “purchase” or preview the course here, though again, it’s free. :)

Sur la 20 (@Laflammec) — $6

Perhaps you know the harp guitar? (The instrument made famous by YouTube guitar stars like Antoine Dufour and Andy McKee.) This original composition by Claude Laflamme takes advantage of this beautiful instrument’s wide range that makes the guitar sound more like an ensemble. About the piece, Claude says:

“I composed this piece while I was driving on the highway after a gig at 2 AM. Do you think it’s dangerous to compose while driving? Don't worry, I did everything in my head. I never play harp guitar while I drive…”

Create and sell your own courses

Did you know you can create and sell your own lessons and transcriptions on Soundslice? We have a section of our store dedicated to community-created courses. You’ll also see any such course listed on the channel of its creator (as in the neighboring photo). If you’re comfortable creating slices and you’re interested in making instructional content, check out our guide on selling courses.

If you’re new to Soundslice, we recommend that you first get a feel for making a slice or two for your own channel before diving into course creation. Have a look at our “Getting started” video.
