Do you guys have any?
I don't mean backing tracks or pre-recorded ditties by yourself.
I'm sure we've all found many tracks by famous players that we can play along and improv over, even though they are doing the same thing themselves.
2 questions I suppose.
1. Favourite improv style...ie. straight blues, jazz, rock, metal, soul, classical or a mix of each.
2. Fave improv tune?
Personally I like to improv around rock/blues (with a ikkle jazz), which in my opinion involves fusing pent's with mode's, which is simple, but effective, alway has been and always will, the ear love's it.
This is my complete style down to a tee.
Fave tune to improv over?
Has to be House Full Of Bullets.
I've been spending a LOT of time with it lately, trying to get comfortable with chasing it around to my style, (I'll post mp3 soon)
IMHO it let's me do everything I want, style, timing (it's made for me), rythm etc...
The only prob's I've had are 2nd fret F# Dorian legato (ouch!!! my fingers), come on Joe, just move it up to G and I'll be ok! I can't live Dorian on the 14th much longer. :biggrin:
I suppose I just wanna' know what turns you on and why?
What style and song can you really let yourself go with? i.e. no concentration, just total feel and vibe?
P.S. The rendition on Live In San-Fran hits 50sec's of the improv intro and I get all gooey
