    I dabble in trumpet playing a little and ran across this video while surfing over in TrumpetHerald. You don't have to play trumpet to get something from this. There are 3 tonal (key) centers and you use just 4 notes in each. Good insights for any soloist.

    Of course this isn't the only way to skin the cat, but it is one (relatively) easy way.

    Nice vid. I like how it was produced.

    Key centers are good and all but I like sifting through it in 12 keys. :ninja:

    Giant Steps... in Db!

    Sorry Vista, AZ
    Very clever! It's far from a comprehensive answer to improv but it's a great way to quickly orient yourself to a new piece. Another arrow in my quiver. :)
