Richard Boulger Presents:

Long Tone Meditations

Richard Boulger presents a new approach to playing Long Tones and simultaneously learning to hear and understand chord changes. Playing a single, fixed pitch for over 20 minutes and playing over 72 chords, you will be building your sound and endurance while at the same time developing your harmonic understanding and chordal awareness. Whether you are just starting out or have been playing for years, Long Tone Meditations will help you become a better player and musician.

A really interesting concept for a play along book relating a single melody note to many, many different chords....this will help both build up your embouchure and your ears!

This could be a great addition to anyone’s daily practice routine.

The perfect companion to Cat Anderson’s technique of the long tone whisper G. Even Cat became bored while practicing this exercise. How do I know? I witnessed him practicing the whisper G in front of his television set watching the evening news. Now, with Richard Boulger’s long- tone meditations you may relax and let your mind  be enhanced by the education of the sound of these different chord types while gaining valuable exercise zeroing in on the muscles of expression needed for upper register playing.
