Jeff Berlin: Shenandoah

Jeff Berlin recently shared this video on Facebook, and it knocked me out.

“While filming some lesson videos, I decided to improvise a rendition of the American classic, ‘Shenandoah,'” he shared. “Recently, I’ve been improvising tunes on the bass that I know in my head but haven’t worked out. I am curious to see what the present ceiling of my ability to improvise whole performances is. Good things happen when I do this, but also I see so clearly areas of musical improvement that I need to pay attention to. Enjoy!”
