Simplest Guidelines to improvise on the Tarantella (Modo Hypodorico) including a guideline using only three notes
These are the simplest guidelines, followed by a score so you can see how the guidelines all fit together. We believe ANYONE can improvise, given the right tools and setting. For guideline 3 you ONLY need to be able to play the notes A, B and C.
They are here in C, in B flat and in Bass clef. Let us know if you want any other transpositions. It’s easy to do for us :-).
