I am a classically trained pianist and this comes with a certain mindset. When I decided to be a jazz pianist, in the beginning it was extremely difficult to let everything go and just improvise. I bought all the jazz books available, I have learned a bunch of scales and voicings in 12 keys, but it did not help me to express myself through music any better. I have tried for 3 years, practicing 6-8 hours every day and then the day has finally arrived:
I could not touch the piano anymore :)
This is why you barely see my promoting the "practicing
everything in 12 keys" idea.
Anyway, after two years I decided to sit down to the piano again...
I closed my eyes...
and tried something very different.
If you resonate with this story, but you have still no idea what to do, please stay and listen to these songs/exercises and a read the story (+practice tips) that comes with it.
Take it easy my friend and good luck in the beautiful journey of sound and emotions.
