Hey all:

I got a new super-computer genius phone a couple of days ago (ie an Android Spirit), and decided to try out recording myself doing a quick little improvisation at the keyboard. I think it came out pretty good, I also like the angle that the video was shot at. Check it out, hope you like wink

It's difficult to critique this since it is an improv. I will say that I am pretty astounded that the sound quality is that good considering you recorded with your phone. Then again, I am listening on my phone so it's hard to say.

There are some interesting ideas in there for sure but it overall is not very coherent, especially considering how short this is. Sometimes I improvise and try to keep everything sounding like it is a song and not a random collection of ideas. I am not sure if that's what you're going for here but in my experience it is easier to make an improv sound more song-like if you really minimize your chord progression(s) and purposefully repeat or elaborate on some of the same ideas.
