The rhythmic concept in how Chris Potter plays arpeggios is really worth checking out.
How the rhythm of the arpeggios adds so much value to the lines Chris Potter plays.
Realizing that jazz improvisation is much more than a bunch of eight notes and using Chris Potter’s lines and practice methods in your development will add so much to your playing.

Using Triads Can Change Your Playing

The use of triads is an amazing way to access both inside and outside playing.
The easy shape of the triad, with only three notes, is a super great way to ease in on getting altered sounds into your playing.
I demonstrate how you can add simple triad ideas to different chord functions and get a clear less to more altered sound.

We dig into different embellishments on Coltrane blues lines and in the lesson transcription I elaborate by adding 10 extra Coltrane inspired blues licks.
