Modal improvisation demonstration

This is a demonstration of some of the sounds we can create with IFR Exercise 2: Melody. Throughout this entire modal improvisation, both musicians are using just seven notes.

The harmonic material that the musicians are using is nothing more than the major scale, with note 2 serving as the tonal center. Modal improvisations like this one are one of the first things that you will learn in the Improvise for Real method.
