Welcome to episode 201 of the LJS Podcast where today I talk about 3 ways to start improvising organically when you play jazz solos. A common problem I hear from subscribers is the struggle to let go of pre-meditating or thinking about what they need to play. It can be tough to let go, “forget” what you’ve been practicing, and just improvise freely. I share some simple ways you can start training yourself to do this better.
Listen to episode 201So it’s the beginning of 2020 and in last episode 200 we heard from podcast listeners all about their 2020 jazz and musical goals.
And one of the goals that I heard come up time and time again is the feeling of wanting to be able to improvise freely and organically without having to think about, without being stuck in resorting to licks and scales that they already know.
So, in today’s podcast episode, I will be going over 3 ways to start improvising organically. Actual things that you can start doing right now, at the beginning of the year, to start setting you up for success in your musical goals and start taking your jazz improvisation to the next level.
In this episode:
1. Practice improvising free melodies
2. Re-composing licks
3. Composing your own jazz solos
I look forward to having you join me in the next episode!
