A good way not to get stuck in old habits and licks is to write music on other instruments. Right now I’m adapting a little piano improvisation to fretless bass and loop pedal. Hopefully it will turn into beautiful music.
The “Chord Studies” was a big part of my exercises way back when I was a student. I thought it could be great fun revisiting this old friend and adapting it to the high C tuning on the fretless. Being chord based it’s easy to lay down a chord drone in the Ditto looper to practice over, sharpening the intonation.
When we put something together there is, no matter what we like to think, a voice for it all. This song, is so pretty, so clear, so beautiful, so beautifully executed. It certainly part of what I had in my head. Thank you for sharing it Jonny
