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.
