How to Develop Your Phrasing #2
Now we really get into the crux of the matter, some serious restriction in terms of what (and where) I let you play a particular phrase on the bass. We start to impose rules for ourselves that help focus, and develop our ability to determine out next idea by teaching us to listen to what we’ve just played. In other words, what we play in a given moment is determined by what we’ve just played, not by what we’re about to play. This is the key to great phrasing.
