Below is the recording of the Week 2 Question & Answer Webinar.
Well, we’ve been through a lot of techniques this week, so how in the world can you make it all stick?!
That’s what we’ll talk about in this video – how to practice this stuff – so let’s find out…
It’s time to apply what we’ve learned to a song to see all this in action!
I’ll also show you a couple more tricks to add to your improvisation toolbox.
OK, it’s time to start adding some serious tools to your improvisation toolbox.
In this video, we’ll talk about using chord tones, other types of scales, crush notes and chromatic rolls, and patterns to build out your improvisations.
Now that we’ve got a chord structure for the blues, let’s talk about how to improvise using blues scales.
This won’t be a sad lesson, but…
Let’s talk about the blues!
Once again, WELCOME to Week 2 of Improvise Piano… FAST!
Below, you will find the Week 2 Overview video, where I do a quick review of Week 1 and discuss our approach for this week.
You will now notice links to the video downloads below each video, and a link to the VLC Player, which is a great free tool to view them.
Also this week, I’ve begun experimenting with a VMPK (Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard) window in each video, that will show you, graphically, what keys I’m playing. A few of the videos this week lose that VMPK window at about 10 minutes (screen saver kicked in!), and the very last video stops (camera batteries ran out!), while the VMPK window video continues.
Rather than take a bunch of time to redo those entire videos, I wanted to make sure I got Week 2 on the website, so if you have a major problem with those glitches, let me know, and I’ll see if I can redo the videos.
On the plus side, I think I’ve got this whole process figured out for the last 2 weeks of the course, and for all my future courses.
So… THANK YOU for suggesting that approach (you know who you are 😉
As always, if you have any comments or questions, please post them in the comments area below the video.
Now, let’s get on to Week 2!
