So in continuing introducing myself, I thought I'd post a few videos I've made in the last year or so abot chord tone improvising--in my opinion, the quickest and most direct way to "play changes," that is outline the chords of a progression in a solo line as opposed to trying to find a blanket scale that fits all the chords.

I'd love to get a little improv thread going here where other folks could chime in with their approaches...maybe we could pick a relatively basic tune (but one that doesn't stay diatonic) and different members could take an improvised solo over a backing track and then talk about some of the ideas they used?

Anyway, let's throw some suggestions out there and see if we can get something going...

I'm a new member, and I'm just checking to see where my fellow jazz cats are at...maybe we could get an improv thread going...

Hey all, just got an invite from John and thought I'd drop in...looks like a cool place.

I've been playing about 21 years now, mostly jazz for the second half of that 21...that's pretty much all I want to play and hear...

I'm a high school teacher and I teach private guitar lessons on the side.

Anyway, hopefully I can be of use to some of the discussions and learn some things too.

Hey Jeff.
Ken here. I assume Bogdan messaged you about participating here(?). That's how I found my way to GMC. Not a whole lot of jazz or actual improv going here.
