Hey guys, so on the ending of this video: http://youtu.be/xajkTUsipc8?t=8m7s , the guy play a improvisation, and I really like this melody, I've tried to figure it out by ear but its really hard since I'm a beginner. Do you know on what chords he's improvising, or anything that help me out?

Thank you very much.

Hey, Luis90. In the left hand he plays a walking bassline downwards.. A-G-F-E then repeat throughout. Right hand are all keys in the C major scale with grace notes added.

You might also want to search for some blues or jazz riffs lessons on youtube. That will definitely help you out a lot too here.

Have fun ! cya

Ok, exactly what I figured out, I think at some point he changes the bassline to D-C-A#-A. Thanks for the help, I'll search about this grace notes and see what I can do here.
