Jean Luc Ponty music to record
A piece to record and mix yourself
From the recently published 'Musical Styles of Jean-Luc Ponty', here is an extract ideally suited to multitracking. We have left the original instruments as they are, but with a little imagination substitutions can easily be made (synth for violin, for example).
We have also included a drum machine pattern chart for those who want to use programmed percussion.
The first 8 bars are in 6/4 and 5/4, but after that the repeated section is in straight fours (from the drum entry) and the piece can be started from this point. If not, 44 crotchet beats of metronome (or hi-hat) will ensure the rhythmic section starts at the correct point.
Put down bass and keyboards next, leaving guitars and violin line (with improvisation) till last.
