Improvising – A Simple Guide Part II — 2 Comments

  1. I am pleased to have found this site’ Very helpful to me as a beginner in improvisation. I have always wanted play a blues trumpet solo in a swing band setting. However, I have always doubted my ability to “hear” believing that I have a deficit like being colour blind. I really love jazz and blues so I want to keep trying. At 74 I can blow my trumpet quite well and just want to feel hopeful that informed effort and practice will help me realise my aim. Great if I could get through “Night Train” solo section say,without just reading dots

    • Thank you for your comments. Do keep trying with jazz. I understand why you think you may have a deficit and find things difficult to “hear”, but I have found that things became easier when I relaxed a little and just went for it! Think about the scales that fit with the changes and just let go… Good luck with Night Train – a great piece. Let me know how you get on with it, and if you have any particular issues that you would like to talk about feel free to contact me at any time to discuss.
