New Lesson (Week 16)

ii-V-I in C Major: Improvisation Etude

The foundation of a bebop jazz improvisation is very straight forward. Almost pure mathematics.

Step 1 – Know your scales and arpeggios

Step 2 – Be able to connect the scales wherever they meet

Step 3 – Be able to play enclosures and connect them to scales and arpeggios

Step 4 – Add rhythmical variations to your lines

So, here is the magic formula:

Enclosures → Arpeggios →  Scales → Enclosures → Arpeggios →  Scales → Enclosures → Arpeggios →  Scales



Stay Safe,
David
