I am not a pianist or keyboardist in any sense of the words. I play guitar, violin, viola, cello, and violin bass; I cannot play a keyboard past “chopsticks” so thanks anyhow……………….

Hi Keith,
I started improvising when I was about 11. My dad was teaching me guitar, and my cousin Sally was teaching me Heart and Soul on the piano. I put two and two together and realized that chords could also be played on the piano. After the notes on the keyboard, I taught little kids to play “every other note” while singing CEG. I taught piano several (many?) years ago, and I taught both notation and improvisation.
