We just had a coaching with Mimi Rabson. Mimi is awesome. We went to her house and played for her in her studio. It was very helpful. Vibrato makes a note interesting. She suggested we explore when to use it and when not to. In pop music they hardly ever use vibrato.
Mimi taught us how to chop. Chopping is fun because it’s different than classical playing. Vivaldi would never chop.
I can’t wait to see her again.
