Standards: Lesson 7

Lesson 7 – improvising using the Blues Scale, diminution and  “The Jazz Train”

The Blues Scale was the first lick I ever learned and was the cause of me getting fired from so many of my early gigs because I played it at every opportunity – in the key of C it fits under the fingers almost too easily. So use with caution!

And diminution does not mean you get smaller as you play a tune – you just shorten note values when you repeat a lick (Just thought I’d mention it)
