    Just for fun... The Challenge: put together a quick cover of a B.o.B. tune using only a Mac laptop running Logic Pro. No outboard keyboard; all sounds triggered/created using the 'caps lock' keyboard and the built-in mic to record the sax.

    Here's a lesson I did for my students a couple weeks ago that has really inspired them. Thought I'd share it with the community here...or at least those that see this before midnight tomorrow evening when it turns into a pumpkin. :) Using 4-note cells to simplify complex changes: “Miyako” by...
