I have been trying to learn blues/jazz for a while and have "tools" such as methods (blues scale, pentatonic scales, approaches, target notes, guide tones, scales and tension notes, tritone substitutions, etc.), but can't seem to put it all together to improvise.
The "construct" or harmonzation of phrases in the right hand methods seem to have little guidance available.I was watching MRRON58 on YouTube and I thought his videos were excellent and addressed some of my questions. I was tinking about joining his "innercircle" online club and was wondering if anyone has experience with his teaching or knows his email address?
As always, thanks to everyone for the help. BTW - after much research I bought a baby grand Hailun at a fantastic price.

Here's the email address:

Here's the website:

Remember, the main "tools" you need, are your ten fingers, and two ears.

In my experience the way you "put it all together" is to simply
Sit down at the the piano and start improvising, purely by
Ear, that is start pounding away with no concern for
Whether you're doing it "right.". When you do this,
All of your previous knowledge and experience comes into
Play subliminally as you let your fingers go and create for
You. There seems go be great a resistance to doing this
Among many people, because they are afraid of playing
"wrong" notes and and not doing it "correctly" but this is
Ridiculous because there is no such thing as wrong notes
When you improvise.

BTW learning to improvise and learning to play jazz/blues doesn't mean the same thing.

Hi Traveler,
There a lots of ways to learn how to improvise. Do you have a private instructor? A good teacher can help you come up with a solid approach and clear up any questions you may have.

Thanks for replying everyone, especially the info on Mr. Ron. When I reread the post I can see that I wasn't articluting my problem correctly (its when I go from one note improv to multiple note and how to use harmonization) so I'm going to repost with the correct description. THanks again.
