The Ultimate Recreational Play-Along
By Sandy Feldstein
approx. 35 min.
The ultimate play-along and sing-along CD for recreational music making. To join the fun with this CD, you don't need to know techniques, music theory, or how to read music; you don't even need an instrument! You can join in simply by clapping your hands or stomping your feet (of course, it's most fun when you have a percussion instrument to play). Experiment with your own rhythms and express yourself; or get a group of people together for exciting interactive drum circle experiences. Synthesizer arrangements of 7 familiar songs, and 4 original "groove tracks" in various styles.
All of the tracks are 2.5 minutes or longer; most have long intro sections, to give you plenty of time to try out your own rhythms. Each track has a measure of drumstick clicks at the start, to give you an idea of how fast the song will be. It is designed to be the ultimate recreational music play-along. The CD does have a short introduction track, but there are really no instructions- designed to just be a fun play-along and sing-along, to let you express yourself. Use with any rhythm instruments and/or body percussion. Includes sing-along sections within many of the arrangements (lyrics are listed in the liner notes).
From the CD cover:
The Recreational Music experience is different from what usually comes to mind when you think about playing an instrument. It's NOT about learning techniques, music theory, and how to read music. It's about having a GREAT TIME. There is NO right or wrong way to do it! Recreational Music is an opportunity to instantly experience the joy of music making. In fact, YOU DON"T EVEN NEED AN INSTRUMENT. You can join in the fun simply by clapping your hands or stomping your feet. Of course, recreational music is most fun when you have a drum, shaker, or any other kind of percussion instrument. It doesn't matter how old you are, or if you've ever played music before, just put on the CD and get ready to join the Rhythm Party!!!
