A step by step method for learning to play over changes for all instruments.

Inside Improvisation, Melodic Structures, is the first in a series of DVDs which describe a simple and pragmatic approach to improvisation. While focussing on the jazz idiom, the techniques discussed are applicable to many styles of music and all instruments, be it rock guitar, jazz saxophone, or the solos of the fusion keyboardist.
