In this episode, I expand on our bebop playing by showing you how to apply our approaches to specific improvisation exercises that will help you improve.

After you the improv exercises we will apply our approaches to a tune, in this case, Autumn Leaves.


Bullet Points

    • 1. Practice continuous eighth notes with both approaches at the beginning of your improve line, middle and end. Land on chord tones on beat 1 only to start. Practice over 2-5-1’s
    • 2. Combine approaches in the same manner over 2-5-1’s
    • 3. Practice approaches in your improve at 50bpm over Autumn Leaves.
    • 4. Use continuous eighth notes
    • 5. Use broken improve lines however you please.
