Listen to episode 238
Have you ever heard a jazz solo and after you heard it, you just knew you had to learn it, or at least learn a part of it?
Because if only you could learn that musical information then somehow it would unlock something that you were missing in your jazz playing. You just want to know like how did they do that?
Well, I’ve been feeling like that a lot lately, and here is a particular solo that I’ve heard recently and have become accustomed to that I just really want to learn a part of it.
Now, I often just feel like I don’t have enough time to properly practice these days. I’m just so busy with all these different things. So I’m going to be stealing a little bit of time here on the podcast to learn this solo.
But at the same time, I know that you’re going to get this in your ears and learn some things along the way as well and get inside of my process for how I go about learning a jazz solo by ear.
