'Seek out a recording (or better yet, a live performance) of an improvisation-oriented musician such as a rock guitarist or a jazz pianist. Listen for how the melody/harmony of each "standard tune" is first presented relatively straightforwardly, and then varied through several repetitions.

Are there particular portions of the melody that are featured more prominently, and if so, why do you think this is?' (p. 132).
