Swiss Matthias' short beatz thread

AKA: Beats & Pieces by Swiss Matthias

I'd like to start a new thing: I'm going to record short little beats and patterns
that I happen to spontaneously "settle into" while practicing or improvising.

Sometimes I really like what happens in moments like these, so I'm planning to put
something on my youtube channel every now and then.

May you get inspired by some of them as well :).

Here's my first epic 12 second piece :) : https://youtu.be/otSWdlSLtcc

Cheers
Matthias

Oh yeah that's great! I like it very much.

Would be nice to include a slow motion shot for a few seconds to help me break it down and analyze it better.
Like maybe this:
At normal tempo.
At slow tempo.
Then again at normal tempo.

I agree, although if it's a capture "in the moment", that requires a bit more work input, & an interruption to your session.

Thanks for your feedback guys! Yes, if I see that there's several requests to
make kind of short lessons out of my patterns, I'll see what I can do :).

Not sure if I'll be able to actually talk in a video, let alone in English, but
there would be some sort way I guess :).

Maybe I'll at least transcribe this pattern later today.

Really liking beat 2 - and the lick at the end is wonderful. Simplicity works for me every time.

Thanks :)! Yes, simplicity I feel is expressing the most with the least amount
of notes/words. Not sure if I'm good at that, though................

Yet one more new snippet from my practice space. A real pedagogical one
(Hollywood Jim?), slow and fast version, transcription at the end :) :

Am I too fast? The ideas just flow sometimes... I don't plan these short
recordings (except for my "10th anniversary beat", haha, have a special
idea for that one).

Feedbacks always very welcome, only positive when honest though please! ;)
