    • Melodic tools • Improvisation takes more than just creativity, it takes structure • Create a story • Know various licks! • Motifs can be made from licks • Motifs will help listeners understand the story you are trying to tell • Tunes are structured using motifs
    • Motifs • • • • • • Example from melody of a tune Miles Davis: Relaxin with Miles If I Were a Bell, by Frank Loesser Phrase Slightly varied How to learn!
    • Licks! • Here is a lick • The lick is very simple • The lick highlights a cmaj chord • Resolves on root
    • Licks (continued) • Constructed by resolving on chord tones
    • Licks (continued) • Some licks can resolve on tensions • These are harder to master • If a lick sounds good, then it sounds good!
    • Practicing licks Licks should be proficient in all keys Take time to play hard keys slow Play backwards Be creative! Licks can also be useful for fast lines!
    • Three Rs • Repertoire • Repetition • Relaxing
    • Final notes • Improvising gets messy when one plays too many notes • Motifs should help one play less to express more • Listeners will be able to sing along and PARTICIPATE
