Blues Cat Recorder features a wide variety of blues styles - from the Swing era of the 1930s-40s to Heavy Metal Rock. Songs can be played on soprano recorder, Orff barred instrument, or any other melodic instrument.
The melodies are geared toward beginning players, but more advanced players will enjoy playing the melodies and soloing to the accompaniment tracks.
All songs have lyrics that can be used in conjunction with, or in place of the recorders. Each song has an improvisation (solo) section with Beginner Level and Advanced Level note choices. The Advanced Level utilizes variations of the Minor Blues.
An optional background melody may be used with or in place of the solos. The included downloadable audio tracks include Performance audio divided into multiple tracks for each song.
The book also comes with access to downloadable digital resources: PowerPoint, Smart Notebook and QuickTime Movies.
