That’s unbelievable! How do you all do that? Amazing! I’m so impressed!
They are pretty quick! I gave them about two minutes to learn it individually before we made that video.
Wow! I’m more sure than ever now: it’s the North Carolina DNA…that just wouldn’t be possible for anybody else.
Wow! I’m very impressed:o)
Thanks John. This is very helpful and interesting.
What you are suggesting is transpose this sequence of notes to other keys such as G, A and C, and you have instant “improvisation”.
I assume you could also slow it down to play a 3/4 tune.
That would work! Most people enjoy noodling around in the major scale, and are unaware that what they are doing would make a great improv over a modal chord progression.
