Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

In case you missed it last week, we reprised our two 7th Chord Arpeggios exercise, Major and Minor. You don't want your improvisation to sound like your practicing scales or arpeggios, but we believe you need to have these patterns in your fingers as starting points.

Express the harmonic vocabulary of the song melodically. Knowing these is the best way to do that!
