Improv Quote of the Day: Only the Real Thing…

Tibetan endless knot Nederlands: Tibetaanse On...

Only the real thing–making music from the heart–will keep you coming back alert and emotionally alive, day after day and month after month. Scales, ear training, and other disciplines do serve a purpose; the point is, they’re secondary. For the same reasons, you need to play the kind of music you want to play now. Once you understand the basic and appropriate ways to begin “speaking” them, you can approach many styles–including rock, pop, classical, country, folk, reggae, New Age and others–immediately.

–Bruce Siegel
