Ive been playing all sorts of bands like dream theater tool or whatever with complex drums.I recently got into bands like intervals,polyphia or strawberry girls.But i want to expand my playing and get into jazz although i have no idea.How do i get in? Ive listened to bands like est,avishai cohen trio or gogo penguin but when i want to play its just not the same as metal (obviously).What are you tips? How did you get started?
I would suggest playing blues and then transitioning to jazz. Blues is pretty similar to jazz in a lot of ways so it's kind of a baby step.
Listen to a lot of Buddy Rich
