Exam ple 8b improvisation
EThis improvisation revolves around the same figure, played at half speed (8th notes) at first – again landing on a D9 chord (albeit only the top three notes of the chord and with a different rhythmic figure). Then, we repeat the same sequence- based figure three times at full speed - using 16th notes to great effect. To get this sounding smooth and in time at full speed it is paramount that you find a good fingering and stick with it. See Allen’s for ideas!
