Randy Johnston’s Coltrane Changes Strategies- Part 2- The Blues Class Content | Randy Johnston
In this class, Randy dives deeper into the Coltrane Cycle. Randy demonstrates methods to become more fluent in applying the Coltrane Cycle to different applications within the Blues Progression.
Randy walks step by step through specific lines and patterns, which will bring the student closer to spontaneous improvisation on both the Blues progression in general and the Coltrane Cycle in particular.
This class is a further exploration of the concepts presented in Coltrane Changes Strategies part 1 and can be used either together or separately with the Volume 1 class.
