Watch the The Language of Improvisation online guitar lesson by Bill Evans from The Language of Improvisation

In this introduction, I will explain how I relate learning how to improvise with learning how to speak a foreign language. Improvisation is broken down to its simplest form. Think of it as going from words to sentences and finally to learning how to tell a story on your instrument. When the beginning student can relate it to learning a new language, they are on their way to becoming a musician who can not only improvise, but someone who can tell their own personal story on their instrument.
