Hour 19 - 21
An Improviser’s OS, written by Wayne Krantz, has changed my perception of how to organize combinations of notes and sounds. His approach to improvising and understanding the fretboard (or any instrument for that matter) is truly brilliant; it’s simple, yet completely comprehensive and it encourages players to develop their own voice. You can check it out on Abstract Logix, an awesome website dedicated to promoting predominantly instrumental jazz-rock/fusion music. During these first few hours, I began applying some of Krantz’s ideas to the guitar. I was searching for a systematic way to practice some of the concepts discussed in this book, related to my new compositions.
