My piano improvisation in F#

Thursday 29 November, 2012

Improv #4 is in F#, because that’s the next note after F.

This one is slow and uneven. I am a bit out-of-it today, recovering from combination of flu, sunburn, and whatever diseases I picked up on holiday. The improv sounds how I feel, in a way. I wish that were the main reason! I think I lack focus in these improvisations, and lack the ability to effectively change chords and textures and keep listener interest.

Hey, while I was on holiday and piano-less, I read a bunch of articles about improvisation. Christian Howes wrote a great article about practising jazz improvisation for violin, but I’m going to subversively try the same techniques and routines on piano. Don’t worry, I’m not going to record myself practising! Next improv will still happen as usual, except I will have practised improvising first.
