Whether it be for 5 minutes or 50 minutes, you can relax your mind by improvising freely, creating a musical train of thought on the fly. Generally there are two common rhythms for relaxing music; a flow rhythm, which has no central beat (think of classical music), and slow, swung grooves. You can learn to play in both of these.
If you get bored on your own, no problem – play with others, learning when to come in and when to add your own parts, through learning how to listen. You’ll also learn a variety of jamming techniques like Call & Response, Grounding a rhythm, Pacing, and more.
Maybe you’ve heard a track you love to put on in the background at home? Now you can play along with it – through ear training that doesn’t suck, identify which key you’re in, chord changes, and the rhythm of the song.
