you'll hear at podcast -daily music advicecoming at you -coming at you today we're on YouTube again today did you know that-yes I did I'm loving the YouTube I'm loving -I'mloving it -I'm loving the -McDonald's I was just seeing if I'd get aBurger King no I'm loving the YouTube comments-yes -because people are very honest -they're very honest and you get a littlesensitive sometimes -it's a good test for me like it's a nice way to go and seeand like I can see if I can stomach it it's very hard to do if you're youtuberand anything my fellow youtubers out there know what I'm talking about-yes -it's hard to wade through those comments sometimes -it is it is so we Ithink ever since we had the three-hour dinner with our friend Rick Beato -I'msorry who -Rick Beato -oh yeah I've heard of him -a famousmusic youtuber with his channel be shout to Rick everything music and -that wasgreat by the way -that was great we had a lot of fun down in New Orleans withRick and some other folks but you know we thought we had comments problems he'sgot some serious comment issues because he's got a lot of traffic over at that -Imean you get that -little channel he's got going -you get those million subs-yeah yeah -all kinds of fun I don't know I love you that's right you know but nono please leave us comments positive or negative I love it all you know -hey bythe way have you seen my shirt that I'm wearing today -uh yes I did see itearlier -did you notice what it is -oh that's -It's the theme to our podcast you can go toyoullhearit.com and get the notation on the shirt ohlook at that practice in all 12 keys that's what we're talking about -take it upbuddy take take it upyeah so we talked a lot about practicing all 12 keys you might say that we yeahyeah we talked about a lot we maybe talk about too much but we talk about a lotbecause it's so important to your development as a musician -yes we maybedon't talk up we talk a lot about the importance of it and how it can help youdevelop we maybe haven't practiced we haven't talked enough about how toactually apply this to your practice -yeah but it's great because we've hadsome suggestions from some of our users like and one of them you took to heartlike we had that suggestion from the guy that was like just do a key a week andthen every week you change keys and no matter what you're working on be that alick or a solo or tune or tunes you're just working on them in whatever key andthen after 12 weeks you cycle background -It's like the quarter system -I think the idea thatyou are working on right now I think this might be one of the last days -yeahwe just finished it -okay oh yeah that's right so it was your January 30 daychallenge -yes -right and you practiced something every day in 12 keys -yes thatwas the only kind of parameters for it was that we would well it's funny causeit started it was just sort of a personal thing I was like I'm gonnapractice something for 30 days I love these 30-day challenges and -let's do itlet's do an episode on our 30-day challenges in a couple days but goahead -yeah yeah cuz you've got a fun one coming up -I do yeah yeah yeah-but yeah it's just it's just a matter of doing something that you know practicingand all 12 keys is something I did but I never like dedicated an actual part ofmy practice every day to do it so if you're gonna do that you can't make itlike okay I'm gonna practice you know a 10 chorus transcription every day in allkeys you're not gonna have time for that or it would take over yourwhole practice so it has to be the kind of small things and what I did was andthen I started sharing it and then I kind of felt responsible cuz people werelike oh I'm following you I want to do the same thing so I wanted to put stuffout there that was challenging but doable so Sunday's it got kind of crazylike we did like the you know you know the first eight bars of giant steps withthe chords and stuff that was probably the harder ones -yeah -we didcrazyology just the first eight bars that one was that what tripped up somefolks you know -for sure -but the the idea about it was yeah take anything oh wedid some voicings sometimes you know you know just to get around the keyboard andthen identify those areas that are more challenging and like we talked about alot of times with practice it's not about going through the ones the thingsthat are comfortable for you and that are that are easy and that are alreadyin your hands it's like what I was finding when I practice things in allkeys no matter what the challenges were there was like two or three keyssometimes one key that would trip me up and usually it was more like a lot ofthis stuff I can kind of hear in different keys pretty well but there besome fingering issues would come up and so I'd really kind of worked those outand it was amazing after 30 days how much more comfortable I was sort ofgetting around those keys -yeah -that we're really providing those kind ofchallenges -yeah that's great all right well let's talk about someactionable things that you can put into play when you practice to help you hitthese keys the first thing that I think of is I know that you like to practicetwelve keys a lot of times chromatically -right -I like to mostly practice themin the circle of fourths -yeah I was doin some but I've been I've beencoming around to that too I like that as well -but I'm coming around to thechromatic thing because I think -maybe we'll meet in the middle -well I think both haveadvantages the thing with the circle of fourths is it's a great way to get throughto focus on sort of hard keys at one time but most people are starting theirpractice like if we're out if I'm practicing scales I'll start on C yeahdon't do that don't -especially if you're practicing the circle of fourths trystarting on D flat -yeahbecause the next key is G flat and then the next key is B -right -and then thenext key is E now those are four of the hardest keys for sure but even A after that butthat way you're not front-loading easy keys like C F B- flat E-flat A-flat -right I love it -keys that alljazz musicians play in all the time start all your practice sessionsespecially technique practice or whatever you are working on that you'regoing through all 12 keys and you can in one session start it on D flat and workup in fourths that way you always hit those hard keys first -that's right it incase you get distracted or something you -or you start tripping up -yeah -right -yeahyeah so you're gonna have to and then by the time your mind is kind of about toexplode you're getting to some stuff that you can kind of drift through alittle bit easier -that's right -as opposed the opposite I love that um I think it'salso good and part of the reason even for stuff like this that it's good to doit in fourths is the challenges that I was telling you about what that was talkingabout with fingerings like that builds in a better progression of fingering soif I go that's a D flatlike that's the you know the main challenge I know what the notes arethat's pretty easy to do but to get the finger is so different where does if Igo up to G flat and actually that's got a challenge too but the fingering iscloser -right -than moving up chromatic -that's right -and you definitely see thatwith your scales you'll see that with you know anything that's kind of basedupon sort of diatonic melodies or moving around the tonic in that kind of wayif you move through the fourths your fingers will make more sense -yeah wellsometimes though if you choose to move chromatically you can kind of get thisrhythm of easy hard easy easy -yeah -hard you know what I mean like you have this morenatural flow I like fourths too for practicing things like voicings like ifI'm going through a certain tune or something I like to practice that tuneand forths with the voicings because I'm usually guaranteed to do differentinversions that way -right -and I don't I'm not just moving my voicings upchromatically as a shape it actually makes me have to think harderabout what I'm doing which is what I want to do when I practice I want to Iwant to be kind of thrown off a little bit so that I have to figure it out -yeahand I think that by that same token if you take a voicing like this just kindof fourth with the major third on top you know two three voicing that's very easy to play -right then you're not learning anything -but if you do it that's more challenging moving in fourths-like if you're not familiar already have to be like okay that's the 13 that'sthat you know what I mean -yeah -so that is the kind of work that needs to bedone in the practice room -yeah -and it gives you different places like or evenif you did like whole steps even though you'd have to come back around and moveit a half step at some point so you take that same voicing and you move it down in whole steps like you get here then you move up to A flat minorit gives you a different perspective on these beyond just the chromatic and really you want to haveall those different perspective because you're gonna have chances to use thoseand remember too your especially for voicings like this two-handed voicingsbut but almost anything outside of maybe scales I don't know that you wouldpractice in 12 keys it's as much of a technical challenge like I'm talkingabout with the fingers but also like with this like getting your hand intoposition so you can move those things around in a way that you know your handgets used to the spacing and stuff so it's it's it's kind of an ear thing Ithink and and that's why I recommend when you're doing stuff like melodieshowever you go to the next key if you go up a whole-step don't think aboutI'm going up a whole-step I try to get that next key and hear it (scatting) where's that major seven -that's importanttry to hear it before you see it -exactly or even feel it and then you have tomove through the keys fast enough and I think we did that on the yeah today'swell the one of the final challenges all the crazyology on that melody what Ichallenge everyone's like stuff don't think about think about how it soundsdon't think about transposing because you're not gonna have time on amelody like that so that's B flat first of all you hear in relation to the tonic soif you do it in G and you can pick something that's kind of unrelatedI try and sing it because you can usually hear it by singing it a lotbetter than you can just by thinking about the notes like I'm on the 3rd I'mon the 4th but then just sort of charge right through it you're gonna make somemistakes go back and catch them identify those keys as we talked about that aremore difficult and really hone in on those and it's amazing how this candevelop your ears your technical things -it happens real fast -and your ability to play in these otherkeys -yeah this is the fastest way to do that and you know as we're talking aboutthis I I just think you may be the most important factor for for doing this isthat we committing to the mindset of doing it -yeah -so that anytime that youdiscover something new whether that's a new lick that you have the thewherewithal to start transposing it as soon as you have it in your fingers likereally or just as soon as you hear someone else play it ya know but thatidea of like ok I have this new thing and before I get all excited and justplay it in a B flat blues for 30 minutes right you know what I mean which is funlet me take this through all 12 keys -yeah -because you're really gonna learn morethat way and you're really gonna lock that lick in more that way -and then youknow some of the most challenging things with this you can you can overlook butif you think about like from our episode the other day about the bluesy doublestops if you think about -It was one of our best -you knowonce we got to take 29 it was no but you know like things that arevery comfortable and feel good in certain keys like you got to reallyforce yourself so if you talk about so that's F you know -yeah but can you-I mean that's hard that's a little easier I like your idea of starting on Dflat and going let's start with the hard ones like those probably sound goodbut I can say the way they feel they don't feel comfortable to me so thatmeans I know that I just need to go through that repeat them because then Ihave a chance when I'm playing or even over F blues you know to kind ofspice it up with a little bit of chromatic -you can do that -yeah why should Inot be able to do that just because it doesn't feel comfortable in my hands youknow because normally it's like we'd go to is that something that it's likecomfortable over that key and that's fine but maybe you hear it -got to beable to do it -got to be able to do it -got to be able to do it it's really you knowwe talked about the superiority of jazz musicians and we are better than most-why are you getting so quiet about it -because I feel a little embarrassed to be honest no but one of thebut one of the things I think that makes you know the masters of our music so great is thatthey're able to do that kind of stuff -yeah- you know what I mean -yeah -and it'sjust part of the tradition of the music that we're we have that kind ofmusicianship here -yeah you know what I like in it to is you know you've beenaround a great conductor that could look at -No -oh oh we're gonna have to do aseven best conductors now that's -brilliant conductors -no they can look at a score afull score full orchestral score and just sit down and reduce it and play itin real time -yeah it's incredible -almost transpose I mean it'sit's amazing -yeah transposing the horns and all that stuff -but that's part ofthe gig and so like this is really part of the gig especially as pianists -yep-yeah -cool man well this was really fun and hey if you want to see Peters 30 daychallenge where he was doing all of this practice on all 12 keys go to the heyopen studio Instagram account find us on instagram hey open studio is our handle -andactually by the time this is on I think we're gonna have it on YouTube we'regonna put them all together as one -are we really -on the open studio youtube page -oh that's excitingknow each day I mean they're super informal I was like in the lobby when wewere in New Orleans doing them you know kicking the little kids off the piano-well if we have that ready Alex put a note to link to that YouTube video herein the desperation -yeah that's right it's not up by today we'll be within the nextcouple days -but also another good reason to go to our hey open studio account isthat I'm starting a 30 day challenge well talk about that more -February 1st right-February 1st that's already going on -drop to 30 days -drop and give me twothat's so much easier than the bootcamp -anybody can do that I feel like all right-hey man we're feeling it big guy -we're back on track let's back on trackI think this chocolate where did you this chocolate from -that's gonna be anotherhopefully sponsor -who is it -I don't know I purchased it at a small boutique Ihave a relationship with called Whole Foods Market -oh -that's very good it's pureand until tomorrow -you'll hear it

< start="194.12" dur="3.54">let's do an episode on our 30-day challenges in a couple days but go>

< start="197.66" dur="3.359">ahead -yeah yeah cuz you've got a fun one coming up -I do yeah yeah yeah>

< start="201.019" dur="6.361">-but yeah it's just it's just a matter of doing something that you know practicing>

< start="215.18" dur="5.76">like okay I'm gonna practice you know a 10 chorus ion every day in all>

< start="220.94" dur="2.37">keys you're not gonna have time for that or it would take over your>

< start="232.97" dur="3.57">out there that was challenging but doable so Sunday's it got kind of crazy>

< start="236.54" dur="5.85">like we did like the you know you know the first eight bars of giant steps with>

< start="242.39" dur="4.76">the chords and stuff that was probably the harder ones -yeah -we did>

< start="250.14" dur="6.249">crazyology just the first eight bars that one was that what tripped up some>

< start="256.389" dur="5.07">folks you know -for sure -but the the idea about it was yeah take anything oh we>

< start="261.459" dur="5.881">did some voicings sometimes you know you know just to get around the keyboard and>

< start="267.34" dur="3.99">then identify those areas that are more challenging and like we talked about a>

< start="271.33" dur="4.08">lot of times with practice it's not about going through the ones the things>

< start="275.41" dur="3.9">that are comfortable for you and that are that are easy and that are already>

< start="279.31" dur="2.49">in your hands it's like what I was finding when I practice things in all>

< start="281.8" dur="4.02">keys no matter what the challenges were there was like two or three keys>

< start="285.82" dur="3.81">sometimes one key that would trip me up and usually it was more like a lot of>

< start="289.63" dur="4.38">this stuff I can kind of hear in different keys pretty well but there be>

< start="294.01" dur="3.06">some fingering issues would come up and so I'd really kind of worked those out>

< start="297.07" dur="3.03">and it was amazing after 30 days how much more comfortable I was sort of>

< start="300.1" dur="3.78">getting around those keys -yeah -that we're really providing those kind of>

< start="303.88" dur="2.64">challenges -yeah that's great all right well let's talk about some>

< start="306.52" dur="4.8">actionable things that you can put into play when you practice to help you hit>

< start="311.32" dur="3.87">these keys the first thing that I think of is I know that you like to practice>

< start="315.19" dur="6.39">twelve keys a lot of times chromatically -right -I like to mostly practice them>

< start="321.58" dur="3.57">in the circle of fourths -yeah I was doin some but I've been I've been>

< start="325.15" dur="2.28">coming around to that too I like that as well -but I'm coming around to the>

< start="327.43" dur="3.03">chromatic thing because I think -maybe we'll meet in the middle -well I think both have>

< start="330.46" dur="4.32">advantages the thing with the circle of fourths is it's a great way to get through>

< start="334.78" dur="5.28">to focus on sort of hard keys at one time but most people are starting their>

< start="340.06" dur="5.76">practice like if we're out if I'm practicing scales I'll start on C yeah>

< start="345.82" dur="4.08">don't do that don't -especially if you're practicing the circle of fourths try>

< start="349.9" dur="3.889">starting on D flat -yeah>

< start="355.259" dur="10.331">because the next key is G flat and then the next key is B -right -and then the>

< start="365.59" dur="7.319">next key is E now those are four of the hardest keys for sure but even A after that but>

< start="372.909" dur="5.34">that way you're not front-loading easy keys like C F B- flat E-flat A-flat -right I love it -keys that all>

< start="378.249" dur="3.54">jazz musicians play in all the time start all your practice sessions>

< start="381.789" dur="3.451">especially technique practice or whatever you are working on that you're>

< start="385.24" dur="4.049">going through all 12 keys and you can in one session start it on D flat and work>

< start="389.289" dur="4.141">up in fourths that way you always hit those hard keys first -that's right it in>

< start="393.43" dur="4.56">case you get distracted or something you -or you start tripping up -yeah -right -yeah>

< start="397.99" dur="4.649">yeah so you're gonna have to and then by the time your mind is kind of about to>

< start="402.639" dur="2.821">explode you're getting to some stuff that you can kind of drift through a>

< start="405.46" dur="3.629">little bit easier -that's right -as opposed the opposite I love that um I think it's>

< start="409.089" dur="6.091">also good and part of the reason even for stuff like this that it's good to do>

< start="415.18" dur="4.709">it in fourths is the challenges that I was telling you about what that was talking>

< start="419.889" dur="5.161">about with fingerings like that builds in a better progression of fingering so>

< start="425.05" dur="6.709">if I go that's a D flat>

< start="433.009" dur="3.511">like that's the you know the main challenge I know what the notes are>

< start="436.52" dur="3.569">that's pretty easy to do but to get the finger is so different where does if I>

< start="440.089" dur="7.98">go up to G flat and actually that's got a challenge too but the fingering is>

< start="448.069" dur="2.94">closer -right -than moving up chromatic -that's right -and you definitely see that>

< start="451.009" dur="3.93">with your scales you'll see that with you know anything that's kind of based>

< start="454.939" dur="4.021">upon sort of diatonic melodies or moving around the tonic in that kind of way>

< start="458.96" dur="4.109">if you move through the fourths your fingers will make more sense -yeah well>

< start="463.069" dur="4.231">sometimes though if you choose to move chromatically you can kind of get this>

< start="467.3" dur="5.699">rhythm of easy hard easy easy -yeah -hard you know what I mean like you have this more>

< start="472.999" dur="4.021">natural flow I like fourths too for practicing things like voicings like if>

< start="477.02" dur="7.229">I'm going through a certain tune or something I like to practice that tune>

< start="484.249" dur="3.72">and forths with the voicings because I'm usually guaranteed to do different>

< start="487.969" dur="3.361">inversions that way -right -and I don't I'm not just moving my voicings up>

< start="491.33" dur="5.22">chromatically as a shape it actually makes me have to think harder>

< start="496.55" dur="2.82">about what I'm doing which is what I want to do when I practice I want to I>

< start="499.37" dur="3">want to be kind of thrown off a little bit so that I have to figure it out -yeah>

< start="502.37" dur="4.949">and I think that by that same token if you take a voicing like this just kind>

< start="507.319" dur="13.741">of fourth with the major third on top you know two three voicing that's very easy to play -right then you're not learning anything -but if you do it that's more challenging moving in fourths>

< start="521.06" dur="3.209">-like if you're not familiar already have to be like okay that's the 13 that's>

< start="524.269" dur="2.82">that you know what I mean -yeah -so that is the kind of work that needs to be>

< start="527.089" dur="3.781">done in the practice room -yeah -and it gives you different places like or even>

< start="530.87" dur="2.79">if you did like whole steps even though you'd have to come back around and move>

< start="533.66" dur="9.16">it a half step at some point so you take that same voicing and you move it down in whole steps like you get here then you move up to A flat minor>

< start="542.82" dur="4.99">it gives you a different perspective on these beyond just the chromatic and really you want to have>

< start="547.81" dur="4.74">all those different perspective because you're gonna have chances to use those>

< start="552.55" dur="3.78">and remember too your especially for voicings like this two-handed voicings>

< start="556.33" dur="4.32">but but almost anything outside of maybe scales I don't know that you would>

< start="560.65" dur="4.29">practice in 12 keys it's as much of a technical challenge like I'm talking>

< start="564.94" dur="3.36">about with the fingers but also like with this like getting your hand into>

< start="568.3" dur="4.38">position so you can move those things around in a way that you know your hand>

< start="572.68" dur="3.75">gets used to the spacing and stuff so it's it's it's kind of an ear thing I>

< start="576.43" dur="5.06">think and and that's why I recommend when you're doing stuff like melodies>

< start="581.49" dur="4.18">however you go to the next key if you go up a whole-step don't think about>

< start="585.67" dur="7.23">I'm going up a whole-step I try to get that next key and hear it (scatting) where's that major seven -that's important>

< start="592.9" dur="6.78">try to hear it before you see it -exactly or even feel it and then you have to>

< start="599.68" dur="4.5">move through the keys fast enough and I think we did that on the yeah today's>

< start="604.18" dur="4.77">well the one of the final challenges all the crazyology on that melody what I>

< start="608.95" dur="4.44">challenge everyone's like stuff don't think about think about how it sounds>

< start="613.39" dur="2.79">don't think about transposing because you're not gonna have time on a>

< start="616.18" dur="6.18">melody like that so that's B flat first of all you hear in relation to the tonic so>

< start="622.36" dur="5.6">if you do it in G and you can pick something that's kind of unrelated>

< start="630.279" dur="5.71">I try and sing it because you can usually hear it by singing it a lot>

< start="635.989" dur="3.39">better than you can just by thinking about the notes like I'm on the 3rd I'm>

< start="639.379" dur="2.85">on the 4th but then just sort of charge right through it you're gonna make some>

< start="642.229" dur="3.96">mistakes go back and catch them identify those keys as we talked about that are>

< start="646.189" dur="2.971">more difficult and really hone in on those and it's amazing how this can>

< start="649.16" dur="3.389">develop your ears your technical things -it happens real fast -and your ability to play in these other>

< start="652.549" dur="2.7">keys -yeah this is the fastest way to do that and you know as we're talking about>

< start="655.249" dur="4.58">this I I just think you may be the most important factor for for doing this is>

< start="659.829" dur="4.69">that we committing to the mindset of doing it -yeah -so that anytime that you>

< start="664.519" dur="4.831">discover something new whether that's a new lick that you have the the>

< start="669.35" dur="4.919">wherewithal to start transposing it as soon as you have it in your fingers like>

< start="674.269" dur="5.94">really or just as soon as you hear someone else play it ya know but that>

< start="680.209" dur="4.86">idea of like ok I have this new thing and before I get all excited and just>

< start="685.069" dur="3.63">play it in a B flat blues for 30 minutes right you know what I mean which is fun>

< start="688.699" dur="3.42">let me take this through all 12 keys -yeah -because you're really gonna learn more>

< start="692.119" dur="4.5">that way and you're really gonna lock that lick in more that way -and then you>

< start="696.619" dur="4.05">know some of the most challenging things with this you can you can overlook but>

< start="700.669" dur="2.64">if you think about like from our episode the other day about the bluesy double>

< start="703.309" dur="3.3">stops if you think about -It was one of our best -you know>

< start="706.609" dur="4.08">once we got to take 29 it was no but you know like things that are>

< start="710.689" dur="3.6">very comfortable and feel good in certain keys like you got to really>

< start="714.289" dur="9.441">force yourself so if you talk about so that's F you know -yeah but can you>

< start="723.75" dur="10.649">-I mean that's hard that's a little easier I like your idea of starting on D>

< start="734.399" dur="7.201">flat and going let's start with the hard ones like those probably sound good>

< start="741.6" dur="3.21">but I can say the way they feel they don't feel comfortable to me so that>

< start="744.81" dur="3.81">means I know that I just need to go through that repeat them because then I>

< start="748.62" dur="7.98">have a chance when I'm playing or even over F blues you know to kind of>

< start="756.6" dur="3.45">spice it up with a little bit of chromatic -you can do that -yeah why should I>

< start="760.05" dur="2.729">not be able to do that just because it doesn't feel comfortable in my hands you>

< start="762.779" dur="8.49">know because normally it's like we'd go to is that something that it's like>

< start="771.269" dur="5.641">comfortable over that key and that's fine but maybe you hear it -got to be>

< start="776.91" dur="2.88">able to do it -got to be able to do it -got to be able to do it it's really you know>

< start="779.79" dur="4.2">we talked about the superiority of jazz musicians and we are better than most>

< start="783.99" dur="4.199">-why are you getting so quiet about it -because I feel a little embarrassed to be honest no but one of the>

< start="788.189" dur="3.541">but one of the things I think that makes you know the masters of our music so great is that>

< start="791.73" dur="3.87">they're able to do that kind of stuff -yeah- you know what I mean -yeah -and it's>

< start="795.6" dur="2.58">just part of the tradition of the music that we're we have that kind of>

< start="798.18" dur="4.32">musicianship here -yeah you know what I like in it to is you know you've been>

< start="802.5" dur="8.49">around a great conductor that could look at -No -oh oh we're gonna have to do a>

< start="810.99" dur="4.92">seven best conductors now that's -brilliant conductors -no they can look at a score a>

< start="815.91" dur="4.14">full score full orchestral score and just sit down and reduce it and play it>

< start="820.05" dur="2.789">in real time -yeah it's incredible -almost transpose I mean it's>

< start="822.839" dur="2.701">it's amazing -yeah transposing the horns and all that stuff -but that's part of>

< start="825.54" dur="3.269">the gig and so like this is really part of the gig especially as pianists -yep>

< start="828.809" dur="5.22">-yeah -cool man well this was really fun and hey if you want to see Peters 30 day>
