Footprints for solo piano

Footprints For Solo Piano

A fairly simple arrangement of the Wayne Shorter composition, Footprints, for solo piano. This arrangement teaches block style chords, harmonizing the melody in C dorian and F dorian, as well as utilizing triadic upper extensions.
"Footprints" is a jazz standard composed by Wayne Shorter, first appearing on his 1966 album Adam's Apple. The best-known recorded version is on the 1966 Miles Davis album Miles Smiles.

How To Solo Over Footprints (Part 2 of 2)

In Part One, we worked on a solo piano arrangement of this Wayne Shorter classic. In Part 2, we talk about improvising or taking a solo over the changes. We will use our ears, our voices, the Dorian mode, whole tone scales, and triadic upper extensions to build our solo. This is pretty advanced, so don't beat yourself up if it's too tough. Just watch one of my more basic jazz tutorials.
