I’ve got a fun episode for you today. I’m going to be showing you how you can improvise over the LJS Podcast theme song. I’m going to do a little improvising myself and show you a few options.

What’s really cool is we also have some listener submissions of their improvisations over top of the LJS podcast theme song.

This is going to be a fun one. I hope you enjoy it.

In this episode:

1. Where the LJS Theme song came from.

2. What makes jazz, jazz anyway?

3. Several scale-related options for improvising over the theme song.

4. Listener improv submissions and how they approached it.

Thanks for listening to this episode of the Learn Jazz Standards Podcast. If you aren’t already, make sure you are subscribed on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
