I recently recorded new Drones with my good friend Jeff Harshbarger. Jeff spent an afternoon over at my home studio and recorded all 12 drones with his beautiful acoustic bass and bow.
Over the years, I have enjoyed using the Indian classical tambura or tampura drones and thought it would be nice to have some new Drones to practice with using a Bowed Acoustic Bass (arco).
I really enjoy these new drones as the sound of the acoustic bass is both familiar and central to jazz and other forms of western music.
Drones are great for both teaching and practice. You can use them for ear training, to play scales, chords, melodies, songs, intervals, free improvisation or anything you can think of.
Thanks for your support!
