Came across this while on You tube.

http://www.coolschoolvideo.com/

They have free improv lessons "free of charge" although they ask for a donation of $4.99 a month.

The material looks good, Howard Brown demonstrates his multi instruments skill very well.

Worth a look see.....

Cheers & Ciao

Great site, thanks. Loads of interesting lessons. I just wish I could download the videos, my internet connection takes forever to stream.
Cheers,

Try realplayer - I haven't used it on that site, but it'll download most things in the backgound. Then hold them for future plays.

I don't download the Videos, it's not absolutely necessary to view them, I make them into audios with Audacity then I can listen when I'm working during the day, I can also put the MP3 into transcribe and drill a certain section.
Great site though will take months/years to digest it all!

Hmmm now I'm thinking about keyboards.....

Where can I download a 36 hour day?

Thanks Kev - yeah RealPlayer works perfectly.
Jimu - I do the same thing with my iPod but with video. Maybe I should try Audacity and save space.
Cheers,
Al

I had a look at this and it is a great website. Am I the only one however who just feels sick when I realise that to learn to improvise this way I need to learn all those patterns and then do it twelve times over? I think I will just stick with the Aebersold books for now and playing by ear.

I think it would be really useful if he explained why he is using the pentatonic major and blues scales as his basis for improvising?
