So I mentioned the other day that I might upload some improvised stuff, so here it is… What can I say? It is what it is… Nothing to write home about, but it is a HUGE step for me in many ways. The pure fact that I was able to improvise and sound somewhat musical is something that I never imagined I would be able to do. The other thing that makes it a milestone for me is that I “dared” to upload it to “Internetland” and share it with basically complete strangers in every corner of the globus. Funny things is that throughout the day I kept telling myself “Upload it, it’s cool, you should do it!” and when I was done with enhancing the original phone audio to make it audible, I almost didn’t upload it because “It sucks, why should I show this to others?”
What you’re hearing is basically an excercise related to the 7Factors course. I picked a random E Aeolian/minor backing track and set two goals: try to highlight the mode and try to play fluently across the board. Cheesy, boring, unstructured but apart from some obvious hiccups (bends, poor note choice and bad intonation) and the 3 chat notifications in the first minute, it’s not that bad… Or is it? Be RUTHLESS and SHOW NO MERCY!
