(not really sure about other instruments but this is one thought I had about improv, play and composing on piano)
Jamming on piano is like multiple choice, if you don't know the answer to a multiple choice question then you usually get rid of at least two you
know can't be it, and your left with 2 to choose from, so 50% of the time your going to guess the right one, and eventually if you do it enough
times, keep seeing the same question over and over again with the same multiple choice questions, eventually you can finish the test or improv rather
easily, and start doing more and more things once you can flow and start seeing the keys light up and darken.
When you hit keys you know will produce a bad sound so you start blocking it out and start seeing groups of keys that you know you can travel on for
the sound to be complete, and when you hop you can go somewhere else on the keys, your trailblazing a path but you can take different routes along the
path just so long as you stay heading in the general direction which is key.
Certain sounds also start seeming like they are harder to push down then other sounds, lighter sounds i can play kinda poppy popping off of keys,
heavier, fatter, darker sounds seem heavy to the feel and you gotta have a light to medium touch to slowly push that sound out.
