JAP, what is your scary teacher's name, and does he have any recordings out there that we could hear?

Sounds interesting if enough people here would participate - I might attempt to do it if at least 4 or 5 others are willing to make fools of themselves along with me. And if it is after the "Unsung Heroes" e-cital.

Maybe everyone could work from the same theme/motif/series of notes. It could perhaps be something everybody knows, like the first eight notes of Beethoven's 5th symphony, or the first phrase of "Fur Elise". Or it could be some random series of notes, on the other hand.

To make it simple, you could just start a thread in the Members Recordings area and people could upload there.



I'm in! Sounds fun.

So, lets do it!

I'm not thinking about using nothing known, but themes given by ourselfes to each other. We could set some minial rules, like a small phrase, or even two different phrases to be connected some how into at least 2 minutes improvisation.

This is what I tought about it. One or two small phrases (or even motifs), and two minutes improv minumum.

What you think?

Battle? I hope not. Improv should be enjoyable. But I take a more 'eastern' approach on this subject. I don't 'try' and create something. I allow the music to lead the way. Or should I say, I try and get out of my own way when playing. smile

More? What else is there? smile You'd be surprised what you can create with G Major and B minor.

Sorry dude, you seem like a really nice guy, and this isn't the place for me to bitch about new-age music. It hurts my soul DEEPLY that a hack like George Winston can sell tickets, but it's not your fault, and I shouldn't take out my anger on you.
