Greetings from Spain!. My name is Juan Miguel and I am a big fan of harmonica jazz. Now trying to seriously step over my basic level of chromatic (and diatonic) harmonica playing and sight reading levels. Yvonnick videos they showed his high knowledge and compromise in teaching.

Happy to be here. Now, let’s work on it 🙂

Saludos!

Very nice tune! I can hear you’re playing in F minor. I think you can improvise around the melody using simply the F minor bebop scale:
The note are F, G, Ab, Bb, C, Db, D, E and F

Try practicing with the click as quarter notes first. Also perhaps it would help to program a different metronome sound on the first beat of each bar 1 2, 3, 4, 5 1 2, 3, 4, 5
Playing over 5/4 measure can be tricky at the beginning!

Hi Yvonnick,

I started practicing Take Five last week. It is tough, to say the least. This is my slow practice with a metronome. I hope to memorize it well enough and speed it up soon. Any pointers on what I am doing, and how to progrees from here. It’s in G, by the way.
