Willie Answers: Stride Techniques (Tatum Stride)

Lesson Run Time: 60 minutes / Release Date: 12/10/2011

This week’s Willie Answers teaches you how to play a basic stride piano pattern along with improvisation. The stretches are challenging, but once mastered with the pentatonic scale, you will have a nice stride pattern that I’ll show you how to combine into several combinations to improvise for minutes. Topics covered are improv with the pentatonic scale and 4 different stride progression “options.”
