Funky ‘n Fun 3
Challenging Patterns (Intermediate to Advanced)

This epic 50-track compilation is a unique ‘musicianship for vocalists’ program, designed for the more advanced singer who wishes to become musically educated about the ‘vocabulary’ and ‘grammar’ of the music they sing. It is a comprehensive and systematic way of learning to sing the various intervals, arpeggiated chords, scales and modes used in popular music (including jazz).

It’s one thing to know these patterns ‘in theory’, i.e. to aurally recognise them or even be able to write them down on manuscript paper in a theory test, but it’s a totally different thing to be able to sing them! The content of this compilation is a deliberate departure away from standard singing exercises which are mostly based around the major and minor scales. It’s the ultimate ear-to-voice co-ordination workout!

This compilation has the added feature of having the vocal cues panned to the left channel of your stereo. This means that you can learn the pattern first by listening to the vocal on the left, panning to the middle to hear both the vocal cue and the accompaniment and panning just to the right to hear the accompaniment when you’re ready to do each pattern on your own. The vocal range covered is deliberately generic – a 2 octave range from G to G which should suit most singers.
