use the beginners shorcut tip on the blues improv page
I started with this a few months ago and played these notes back and forth every day for at least an hour or two while driving. I would try to make up riffs and melodies just using these notes. It really paid off with a week or two. I've since added more riffs and I'm working on the blues scale. I think the trick is to stick with one thing for a few weeks or more until you feel real comfortable. It takes time but its worth it.
: I'm still more or less a beginner, although I can do single notes, tongue blocking, etc. better than the average beginner as I'm going s.l.o.w.l.y. But there's one thing I can't do, and that's improv. I know this site has sections on it for jamming, but what I want to do is just...play. no other music, no prewritten tune, just me and my harmonica. I can do this well with flute, but it's FAR too diffrent to be ablew to transfer much of my skill. Does anyone have adivce as to how to express heart and soul in improv? or at least how to make sure it sounds like music? thanks so much in advance!!!
