Thread Name: What is improvisation ?
Subject: RE: What is improvisation ?
I agree with you, Shambles. If something sounds the same every time, it ain't natural. A few years ago, a young lady I work with went to see a Madonna concert. She told me the next day that parts of it really sucked because Madonna "changed the songs". When I asked what she meant by that, she said, "You know, sometimes she sang words where there WEREN'T SUPPOSED to be any, and other times she didn't sing when she WAS SUPPOSED TO."

I asked, "You mean that she used artistic license with the songs that she had written?"

The young lady just gave me a confused look. She obviously thought that she had paid $50 to go see a very large music video.
