Have you ever lost your place in the form of the song? Let’s be honest, I think we all have. You know, with the drummer playing across the bar line, the bass player messing with the time, etc. Who hasn’t asked to proverbial question—“where’s one?” Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke make suggestions and demonstrate a method that could help you from losing your grip on the form. Whether you’re a pianist, a bassist, or play another instrument, these tips can help improve your improvisations.
Chick and Stanley demonstrate this useful approach over the classic RTF song “After the Cosmic Rain.”
Stanley also joined Chick on his podcast, MusicMagic. To listen to this episode click here.
