The Path to My Space, My Time

for the active reader , vol.1 to 6.

“The Path to My Space, My Time”  is a suite of compositions in 6 volumes ( 4 available now) intended to develop your reading and improvisational ability, as well as your knowledge in music. The compositions are, in general, for solo tap-guitar, however there are also pieces for duets and small ensembles. The method is progressive and starts  from the simplest. Each volume contains reading pieces, pieces designed for improvisation, or specifically designed to improve your tapping technique. The songs are often from the repertoire of Daniel Schell, so you can hear them on his various recordings with Ensemble Karo, Sandip Banerjee, or others.

There are  reading/rhythmic pieces such as  ‘Four over three.”, simple pieces to improvise as  ‘Wife of the cuckoo’, or advanced like  ‘Fool’s gold’, which contains changes of time signature. There are also harmonic studies, based on the ‘karos’, which opens new perspectives to the improviser and composer. Eventually, pieces like ‘Walk on two pathes’ use a new fingering technique which involves the repetition of the same note (or neighbouring notes) on two regions.
