A week has flown by. Improvisation yesterday again. We were doing rhythms with foot tapping (on the offbeats) and hand clapping. It can be difficult to coordinate.
I have been listening to Count Basie and his band. I also began to transcribe Topsy for practice. I am very keen on getting better at improvising and have been practising my pentatonic minor scales. Backing tracks next.
Check out my earlier post of the video of Ross Couper and Tom Oakes and also the second half of Rona Wilkie's video for some fiddle improvisation.
