Welcome to episode 177 of the LJS Podcast where today I demonstrate a solo I composed over a minor blues. Composing jazz solos is one of the best ways to solidify the jazz language you already know and get it to come out in your playing.
Listen to episode 177
For today’s episode, I want to give you a very actionable episode. Something that you can take action on today.
One of the best ways that I think that you can start improving your jazz solos and take the jazz language that you already know and get it to come out on your instrument, is to compose a jazz solo. And I’ve done this before in the podcast.
But doing this action can really help solidify ideas that you already have. And since I don’t talk enough about minor harmony on this podcast, today’s example is going to be over a minor blues.
So, I’m going to show you a solo that I have composed over a minor blues and challenge you to do the same.
In this episode:
1. I demonstrate my jazz solo over a minor blues
2. A few quick points on writing a good jazz solo
I look forward to having you join me in the next episode!
