In part two of a two-part episode, Bing takes the previous workshop and adds a bit of simple music theory to create a path for improvisation. A review of all the available chords in the key of D is followed by a neat trick for creating color chords while working with I-IV-V chord progressions.
In part one of a two-part episode, Bing shows a simple way to build improvisational skills. By setting a basic rhythm, and using some easy patterns, you can create music on the fly while developing familiarity with the fretboard. Prepare to go deep!
