Improvisation – Jazz Piano Lessons – Sounds Good at Slow Tempo

Do your fingers seem to only have one speed—slow?
Want something bluesy you can play slowly and still sound great?

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott shows you how to use a 12 measure pattern to create a great bluesy sound that sounds great played slowly.

The example for these piano lessons are taught in the key of C two octaves down from Middle C.

The order to play the chords follows the 12 measure pattern:
C-C-C-C-F-F-C-C-G-F-C-C

Frequently you will see the C7, F7, G7 played, but today we are going to make it even simpler and use a variation of the C, F and G Chords for your left hand part.

We will just be using the two outside notes (removing the middle note of the triad) of the chords for this pattern.

C = C,E,G: We will play the C & G.
F = F,A,C: We will play just the F & C.
G = G,B,D: We will play the G & D.

After playing the two outside notes, we will keep the pinkie on the root but will then move the thumb up one step and play that. So the pattern will look like this:

1. C & G and C & A
2. C & G and C & A
3. C & G and C & A
4. C & G and C & A
5. F & C and F & D
6. F & C and F & D
7. C & G and C & A
8. C & G and C & A
9. G & D and G & E
10. F & C and F & D
11. C & G and C & A
12. C & G and C & A

Another way to look at it is:

C & G and C & A (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 4
F & C and F & D (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 2
C & G and C & A (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 2
G & D and G & E (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 1
F & C and F & D (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 1
C & G and C & A (playing quarter notes 4 times= 1 measure) X 2

Then repeat over and over again! Added bonus—at the end of each 12 measure pattern before you go back up to the top, you can play a G augmented (G aug) F, B, D# in your right hand

Practice playing the left hand pattern solely until you get to the point that you can play it pretty easily without having to think too hard or until your hand has that muscle memory.

Once you get the left hand pattern down, you are ready to tackle the right hand part. With your right hand, you will be improvising. Just stick to all the white notes with the exception of the Bb. If you want to, you can also include the Eb. If you stick to playing only those keys you will never hit a clam.

The key is to keep your pattern in the left hand playing slowly and consistently at the same tempo.

Have fun with this slow blues pattern. It is a great chance to practice your improvising!

Scott’s life goal is to help you learn to play piano through piano lessons that you can take anywhere and at any time to get you started having some fun at a piano or keyboard as quickly as possible.

Improvisation – Jazz Piano Lessons – Sounds Good at Slow Tempo

Simple PIANO EXERCISES for Advanced JAZZ IMPROVISATION

Learn jazz piano No Comments »

Fundamental, simple and very powerful right hand modal jazz piano exercises. We take advantages of the physiology of the hand using primarily the 3 first fingers making a strong, simple and ‘fast moving’ foundation to be used when playing a jazz piano solo.

We reuse the same unique 3 finger hand grip (lick) to play the pentatonic scale and all the 7 church modes. Furthermore we use the hand grip to play chromatic scale and off scale.

Having done the groundwork we expand the 3 finger hand grip also using the 4. and 5. finger.

The main idea in this lesson is to make great sound – but in a simple manner. We will avoid overthinking when playing a solo. We will use simple but powerful tools. The tools shall not make things complicated, instead they shall free our mind. Then we can use our energy on expression and feelings bringing forward the soul of music.

Jazz Piano For Beginners || Tutorial #3: combining scales into an improvisation

Next tutorial in the series due: Wed 30th Nov 2016 EDIT: I’ve pushed it back into December to make room for the latest Train Your Piano Brain and some Christmas stuff. Look out for Jazz Piano #4 the week before Christmas!

Full fingerings for major and minor scales: http://www.pianoscales.org/major.html [NB, this page is a great resource, but I’d avoid using their suggested fingerings for pentatonic scales, which I think encourage overuse of the strongest fingers]

This is the third in my series of tutorials on jazz piano for absolute beginners. In this one we think in more detail about how to build and use particular scales, work on a new exercise and look in depth at how you might approach it.

Previous tutorial in series: https://youtu.be/ABuewbFpyhg

This is the second tutorial in my series on jazz piano for absolute beginners. In this lesson we build on what we learned in the first tutorial, using the C major pentatonic scale and two notes from the C blues scale to improvise over two, and then three, chords in the left hand.

I also introduce shell chords – incredibly useful for jazz piano – and talk about some of the underlying music theory it’s useful for you to know, especially if you’re relatively new to the piano or just coming back to the instrument.

Finally, I talk about the mental processes involved in jazz piano improvisation (and, in fact, in most forms of improvisation, musical and otherwise), and how skilled pianists and other improvisers have a mental toolkit from which they build their improvisations. This all depends on developing a “flow state”. The best jazz pianists have the biggest and best-practised toolkits and the best flow.
