There is a new anime this season that is about Jazz.
It’s called Sakamichi no Apollon or Kids on the slope.
It’s gotten me interested in Jazz and made me practice some of my more blues and jazz pieces from the simply music song list a bit more.
On another note, Jazz is hard as it’s very theory based, but it’s more fun to play than classical because you’re not constrained to playing from the music sheet and can improvise and try different things based on the chord progression.
I found an interesting jazz piano website in Japanese where they take some popular songs, analyze it and then turn it into a jazz arrangement of it. I’ll be checking it out to see if I can learn something from it.
Still currently thinking of getting one of those multi effects pedals for my electric violin. I still haven’t decided on one yet, but thinking of getting a 2nd hand Zoom G1X pedal.
