Lesson 48
The Xtremes: Xtreme Pitch Jumping, Part 5

Please make sure to practice Part 4 before working on this one. Part 5 is directly builds on the
previous lesson. In this final pitch jumping exercise you’ll play along with music again and
you’ll eliminate all traces of sliding. In addition to your ability to listen and consistently intuit
the locations of compatible pitches, you will have to think quickly in order to “correct” creatively
for any pitches that sound awkward with the music. The goal is to play in a continuous
improvised flow, during which every pitch you play sounds intentional. In other words, you are
trying to make this sound like a composition rather than a just series of notes. Experiment,
give it some life, have fun.
