How do you go about learning to improvise? I heard music theory helps but what aspect of music theory?
I mainly want to improvise for fiddle tunes because they just don't sound right if you play them strictly by the book. Classical peices at least most of the time have to be played by the book and sound good that way.
Any books for this? I know improvising has to do with the chords and forming notes from that.
