This demo combines my scale improvisation lesson (see #SCALES – improvise using the major scale) with one of my backing tracks. I’m playing a Bb major scale over a backing track in 5/4 time.
Of course, other combinations are possible. In this video, I try to show what’s possible with only one scale if you follow my improvisation rules presented in LOE 002.
0:22 Improvisation demo: Level 1
2:32 Improvisation demo: Level 3
Impro rules (in short):
Level 1: scale only, always up and down 2 octaves, no notes skipped
Level 3: change direction any time you want, skipping notes before starting a new phrase is ok
Here you can find all my Backing Tracks (aka “The L.O.E. B”):
