Hip Hop Blues uses contemporary beats that your string students will love. Parts range from beginner, open strings only, and advance to use of notes in open and closed first position.This rhythmic setting makes it fun to work on beginning intonation, improvisation and syncopation. There’s a part for everyone!

There are five different parts (in G Major):
Part 1 has the melody and uses all the notes in first position
Part 2 reinforces the 1st through 4th scale steps
Part 3 open position fingering on D string
Part 4 is written for open string and first finger
Part 5 is for open strings.

This composition comes with an mp3 rhythm track.
