ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tricky rhythms made easy. Increase your knowledge about unusual meters. Rock musicians throughout history have turned to international / multi-cultural rhythms for new and fresh inspiration. Musicians of all forms will expand their musicality beyond limits of space and time.

This CD features advanced rhythmic pattern examples for instruction and practice. Each pattern is clearly counted and the skeletal form established for play-along practice. Listeners may follow along with the typed insert for further clarity. In the following track, the rhythm pattern is played at a comfortable tempo, as an example of how it can be used in performance, or for composing new music.

The "performance" tracks highlight Middle Eastern ornamentation & embellishments such as Turkish velveli.

These rhythms have been sourced from the music traditions of Persia, Turkey, and the Arab world - Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco!

Fantastic!
Ancient Secret is a nicely choosen collection of rhythms that makes practice fun!. There's plenty of variety in the patterns and a helpful count at the beginning of each rhythm. Each rhythm is notated on the inside cover too. When I practice on my own, I can get into a bit of a rut or end up not challenging myself enough. Using George's disc makes my practice sessions both more enjoyable and more productive. 
Kudos and thank-you.
