Hey guys welcome back again to Ken TamplinVocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. I'm here with my amazing student, Tori Matthieu,and we're doing takedowns of different songs today. We're going to do Amy Winehouse.The song's called Valerie. We'll do it first. We'll talk about it after, likewe always do. Let's rock! Amy Winehouse. Whooh! Nice job, girl! Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing. So, we're going to be working upon, actually, some original material, too, so be watching out for that. Anyway, this is KenTamplin Vocal Academy.

Chord Voicing in C Major D Minor G7 How to Comp in C major for Chord Voicing
Now I just want to take a second and justreally remind you that when you're comping or just playing chords behind a soloist there'sreally an art to comping. When you think about it you're putting yourself in the basis ofmusic but you're not trying to stand out. You're not trying to stick out. You're justtrying to be that part of the background. If you think of a painting, whatever is themain them of the painting is in focus. And the the background is really just there tosupport it. And that's really what your job is. So, how do you put in enough, but nottoo much. And it's really an art. And really the best way to think about it is always listenin to whatever the lead, whatever it be a
vocal or an instrument or whatever, you haveto really concentrate on that. And then really just try to paint around that. And just reallytry to move around. And again, you don't want to be too busy, because if I'm soloing here,it just sounds kind of crazy. So, if you just lay down some simple stuff. So again, it'shard to explain it all in just a minute, But really, take a step back and really listenin to the surroundings that are around you and just try to blend in and we go.
