Soloing example 2 over a llm7 V7 progression

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites From the reherseal room, another go at improvising over a Bbm7 Eb7 (llm7 V7) progression. Im mostly using the Bbm dorian scale, Bb minor pentatonic scale, F minor pentatonic, and Bbm7 and Eb7 arpeggios as starting points. To get ideas I often "steal" licks, melodies or motifs from other soloists (not only bassplayers), analyze them (which scales, chords, tonality are used) and make it mine ( changing rhythm or notes to my liking and style)

rmontad: Lol, you sound like me giving styling critique 🙂 You are absolutely right, but right now Im just happy to capture ANYthing from that room. But ive just bought another cam with tripod for this kind of thing so i can zoom to my playing. Its a shared reherseal room and Im not part of it, so I have no intention of cleaning it, ha ha.

The music is nice, but you need to think more about the overall video clip. The visual composition of this clip is pretty bad. The sheet music blocks the other guy’s hands. There’s all kinds of junk in the background (black garbage bag, sheet of paper near the ceiling, papers on the speaker on the shelf, etc.) The video is audio pleasure and informative, but the rest is VISUAL NOISE and I find it extremely distracting. I’m a big fan of PBN, so I’m just giving honest feedback.
