[PLAY] First-Take Friday! 9 Oct 2020 – Jazz Rhythm Changes in Bb

This week by request we have a track used by jazz students (hat tip to u/AveSeitana). I’m not very familiar with jazz, but apparently this is “one of the most common vehicles for improvisation” so give it a try.

I’ve received a number of requests over the past week, which is pretty awesome. If there’s a track that you’d like to try with the group, send me a direct message and I’ll add it to the list. It’ll take a few weeks for us to get there, but I’m keeping track and we’ll cover them in order.

Rules:

  • One take only. These posts are meant for practice and feedback on improvisation, not to something that’s rehearsed.
  • This is not a competition. Listen to other people’s takes and share constructive criticism. There are no winners here, only people that want to improve their playing.
  • If anyone has requests for a particular style/genre, please DM the OP.
