Join Julio Appling for an in-depth discussion in this video Accompaniment styles, part of Real Books and Digital Accompaniment Tools for Musicians.
- In addition to inputting the chords…you will also want to choose a style for your song…that matches your practice needs.…For this example we'll look at the jazz blues…included with iReal Pro.…In edit mode, select from a list…of 10 listed in the style drop-down area.…The default style is saved to the song…and remains visible on the lead sheet…in the top left corner.…In playback mode, you may choose from a larger assortment…of accompaniments which are classified into three styles;…jazz, Latin, and pop.…
Changing accompaniment style may change…the instrumentation and tempo to the default…for that style, though these can be further modified…using the commands in the playback bar.…For reference, the original style will remain listed…in the playlist area next to the title and composer.…I'm going to use the editor and the practice mode…to modify the style of this twelve-bar blues,…which was originally in the jazz medium up swing style.…Let's hear how it sounds right now.…(medium tempo tap)…(jazz medium up swing music)…
