Infinite patience brings immediadiate results

An old saying from Confucius 551 BC. Quote: ''When the student is ready to learn the teacher appears''.Being a musician most of my life.One of the most important things is to listen to everyone that can inspire you.Even if you have heard it all before.As time goes by someone will inspire you to think another way or an apporach to view it.These studies will help you to create other possibilities .Have fun.

Chromatic Approaches to Pentatonic Scales: Lots to get my Teeth Into

I have only had this Digital Download for a week and I am already noticing a change in my practice habits. The systematic approach spelt out in this deceptively short book will require me to put in many more days/months of practice before I have it under my fingers. However, it has already helped me to understand how to take my vamp soloing to the next level. The text is clear (and clear-sighted) and the funk play-a-longs are extremely useful. Bravo!

A must for advanced musicians.

I’m a “living room” Jazz guitar player and your work is an inspiration. I use your approach as a first step to my own solo creations. In all honesty, I do not read music and it is quite a challenge to decipher some of the work. However, the phrasing exercises are attainable when one takes the time to listen carefully and practice! Thanks and keep us Jazz guitar players in mind. Regards,
