TIP: A Karimba Improvisational Strategy Part 10

Our objective with these lessons is to give you the tools, understanding, and confidence to improvise with your left thumb while the right thumb "holds down the fort". Here is another suggestion for the type of thing your left thumb could do.

Measure 4 on the left is different, emphasizing B as the first and last note of the little phrase. Again, B is a good note to play here as the right hand is playing a partial E chord.

Furthermore, the left thumb plays with the right thumb on the opening chords. This complexity is somewhat compensated for by the fact that the right side is doing the same pattern three out of four times.
