I’ll tell you right now. Extensions. Extensions are the colors that allow you to spice up your playing and start to paint the music however you’d like. Extensions are the beginning of the road to freedom in music. Just as a painter paints with his colors, a jazz musician paints with extensions. Let’s get into it!
