In Ralph Towner's book Improvisation and Performance Techniques for Classical and Acoustic Guitar he suggested picking two chords and finding a way to relate them to one another. This idea surfaced in my mind today so I decided to explore the possibilities again. Any two chords could work, the intent is to find a way, even more than one way to connect them. When I've played with this before I always learn something. Today was no different.
A simple journey into the unknown, offering a chance to respond, reflect and refine my abilities. Another benefit is the activity makes a deposit in my imagination for future harvest. Possibly a nugget could arrive that leads to a piece. I'll never know if I don't pick up the guitar and explore. Neither will you.
