Improvising

I have attached here some backing tracks so that you can practice improvising at home.

A Few Tips!
  • Start slow and only with a few notes
  • You do not need to fill every empty space with noise, that has the same effect as talking non-stop.
  • Remember improvising is COMPOSING, so compose little melodies that you like and use them or use melodies in your solos from the songs. Example: use any phrase from "Jammin" in your Bb Blues Solo.
  • Do be afraid, just GO FOR IT!

1. Bb Blues: Use Concert Bb Blues Scale/Concert Bb Major Scale
2. F Blues: Use Concert F Blues Scale/Concert F Major Scale
