Concepts for Improvisation Volume 1
This book expands on the harmonic and melodic possibilities that are in music passages by using similarity rules for diminished scales.
Pasqua, a renowned performer and teacher on improvisation, likens music and improvisation to architecture. His observations on students who improvise at first from chord to chord, but then eventually progress, and become intuitive about it, is the basis of his Concepts for Improvisation series. Pasqua encourages looking at music from the intuitive side and what makes the song a song.
