Last night with my teacher/mentor, I was able to do something new…..improvise!
I mentioned in a recent post about figuring out finger patterns to play in different keys, right? So my teacher jammed in Am while I just played an improvised tune. Well, it was pretty amazing!
I couldn’t help feeling a little giddy. Recall I’m the one who cannot play without music in front of me (“classically trained” and all that bullshit).
But I did it! This is a huge step towards my dream of playing rock violin. First door opened.
I just discovered this dude, what I am aiming for:
I have a lot of loosening up to do. I feel a little silly playing and acting different but it’s a process without end.
