    Hey No Prob! This is one of my favorite easy things to teach 🙂 It opens up
    a bunch of possibilities for people improvising!

    Chopstix! A friend of mine told me I have to go to the one in Tacoma with
    him if I ever make it up that way. “Who knows, you may be playing too much
    Classical or something.” Hahaha. Oh, Chris.

    and say hello!

    I’ve been a on the classical side of piano for a while now but lately i’ve
    started to play blues and jazz. I began with all the famous standarts
    (Autumn Leaves etc…) and I learned how to improvise on the blues scale
    myself but it always sounded blank, not to mention it was also very
    repetitive. well.. I just found out about your vids and watched several and
    it already gave me some twists and ideas to implement. so all I really
    wanted to say was thank you very much! You’re doing a great job!

    hey, can you teach us how to play patterns for jazz accompaniment? I’ve
    been struggling with that 🙂 Songs like “The Way You Look Tonight” “It
    Might As Well Be Spring”

  8. Ronckie says:

    thanks for tutorials like this, with these ‘tricks’! I’m pretty much
    classical schooled so my improvision skills aren’t the best. Thanks so much
    for helping me loosen up 🙂 keep up the great work!

    coordination enough to play chords and complex stuff with my right
    hand…practice i guess i might get a keyboard and start 🙂

    LOL I accidentally “discovered” this myself. Then I was like “this is so
    damn useful it must be a common technique” AND there it is!
