Understanding chord progression is the key to improvising. Once you learn the proper way to voice chords with your fingers, you’ll wonder why no one has ever taught that to you before. Repeatable patterns in your fingers make it all possible. Add to that the bebop scale and you’ve really got the keys to improvisation.
For every chord progression there are literally millions of ways to voice those chords with your fingers. But what you’ll learn is that there are patterns you can actually count on to do it right.
You will learn the infinitely useful bebop scale to start to give life to your melodic improvisations. Having one extra note per scale will serve you well.
