A flash of insight

  1. BadExampleMan
    I just had a flash of insight: the easiest way to start improvising is to f**k up, and call it improvisation.

    By which I mean, once you're locked in on the scale for whatever chord you're playing over, your fingers can get confused and play the same notes but out of order, or you can grab another note of the same scale by mistake. And at worst, it won't sound wrong. At best, it'll sound good in a different way that highlights the melody you were trying to play but f**ked it up.

    Signed, my fingers have minds of their own.

    Great insight, I think you're on to something

    BTW, I noticed the photo you posted of a destroyed mandolin shaped object ... guess I missed any post about it. What's the deal?

    For some reason that photo reminds me of the old story where the punchline is "before I cut off his tail and painted him yellow, he was an alligator".

    What kinda strangs you gonna put on that thang?

    The photo is my KM850 run through one of those new AI art programs. I just thought it looked interesting.
