High Speed Improvising: The Crazy 710 is a combination of licks that I would call a "bridge" - Learning how to stay in one place and combine lots of different licks is one of the main keys to improvising at high levels of speed. Some licks remain hard to play even when you master them. The 710 isn't one of those licks, in fact it becomes almost effortless to play when you master it. This makes it an extremely useful lick and you'll find yourself using it again and again in many different contexts. The crazy 710 consists of uneven numbers and this makes it hard for the ear to grasp. It's difficult to sense when the lick repeats itself and that makes it sound new and fresh every time. When the brain can't figure out the system behind the notes, it hears chaos. So it wont recognize this lick when it appears several times in the same solo. It's like a river of notes that flow from your hands and not a predictable sequence or pattern.
