I'm looking for a books or websites of simple improv games or routines groups of musicians can play with one another to improve listening, turn taking, and hearing the whole band instead of only what they are playing. Background: I'm in a hobby originals band made up of friends. We are committed to playing original music and not covers. Some of us have been in bands our whole lives (all middle aged), but for others it's a new experience. Everyone is at least a decent musician on their own instrument. We are a 6-piece and there can be a tendency toward busy-ness, despite the fact that we are working from closed-form songs (someone brings in lyrics, a chord chart, maybe a melody and we build from there). Everyone is aware of this issue. But I think it's a lot to expect the less experienced players to "just fix it" without practicing fixing it together. Working at the arranging stage without anything else will be an issue simply because people get invested in "their" songs. So starting from something neutral like a game or exercise, that "belongs" to nobody, seems like a better idea. The people who (in my opinion) most need to improve seem on board with the proposition. Any recommendations? Or other better ideas or success stories?
