As I’ve said before jazz is like speaking a language. We know that person in our life that won’t stop talking. They just talk and talk and talk. It’s never fun to listen to them. The people who take their time and say something meaningful are the ones to listen to. We want to be those people on the piano.
It’s extremely easy for us as pianists to play and play and play because we have a percussive instrument. We can just bang away on the piano and not realize we’re not leaving space.
In this podcast, I’ll teach you how to focus your mind so you can develop your solos and say something meaningful.
- 1. Stay simple
- 2. Take one idea and develop it over many chorus’
- 3. When you play another idea you like begin to morph into your next idea and begin to develop that one.
- 4. Don’t abandon your ideas early. Water them, and love them until they bloom in your music.
