This week is part one on concepts for soloing on the swing style of playing Trouble In Mind. We are going to learn the melody in Eb and then start embelishing on the melody with lines extending around it. We will also start working our way to embelishing our solo with diminished runs with 6th and 9s in them.
As we build to our final lesson, we will work around the chord changes without reference to the melody. That way we are building two distinct sounds that enable us to play more choruses without repeating ourselves helping to add fresh ideas.
