Week 5 – Improvising Rhythmically
Learning how to improvise can be very overwhelming. Your teachers are probably teaching you about all kinds of scales and modes, which you really have no idea how to use at the time. So, by taking a rhythmic mental approach, you can immediately begin to sound like a pro. This concept by the way, will immediately cure your urge to play lots of notes, scales, and patterns of all the kinds. It allows you to sound truly organic.
In order to start applying this process, let’s use a blues again. I am simply going to pick one type of rhythmic duration and solo just using those rhythms over the blues form.
