Yes, agreed; knowing chords major and minors of the various keys is well—key LOL With improvisation, you can play the melody of the tune and add some “decoration” to the line. If the melody goes from ….for example…a C note to an F note, instead of ONLY playing a C then an F, why not do a quick little run? C, D, E, F (keeping in rhythm of course) If you’re ending a song that’s an e note, d note, and a final C note… put in a quick triplet, like e, D(e, d) C!
Hope this helps!
@John (BGD) I would love for John to give out a lesson specific to this....It sound easy but for some of us that are relatively new it sounds complicated.......
I keep starting a series on improv but never finishing... I will do it for sure.
Oh boy! Now we've got something to look forward too...no pressure, of course...lol...life is tough enough without anything added going into the mix...still...it would be a great idea.
