Are you tired of improvising on the organ using simple T, S, D chords and creating the same predictable sounds? Of course, you know that you could use more advanced chords and more advanced polyphonic tools, such as imitations. However, learning all of this takes lots of time.
But what if I told you that there is another way of adding incredible spice into your playing without the advanced knowledge of music theory, harmony, polyphony, and counterpoint?
This is polytonality. You will be literally shocked at how different, strange and colorful your playing will sound because of this. In this video I will explain what polytonality is and also talk about special exercises you can do with it in your practice.
Here I will be referring to the exercises with scales, but imagine what could you do with hymns or any other kind of melodies, if you applied the same concept of polytonality?
