    That's pretty funny, a pseudo-intellect comment from Ringo Starr. LOL. Even though everyone is entitled to their opinion and of course everyone has their own taste but the day that any real musician takes anything that dude says seriously is th...(more)

    That about sums it up CS. But what makes this format so wonderful is the fact that you can have your input put it on the site here and then you get to that old saying: YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO THE WATER BUT YOU CAN'T MAKE IT DRINK. FB

    Hey there Jon. Thanks for checking out the error and the critique, I'll have to go back and edit. Going back and seeing that #9, I said to myself: Bleh!!!! LOL. It is suppose to be a natural nine. If it was a sharp nine then the Bb harmonic...(more)

    Hey there rich!! I didn't mean to give the impression that there aren't any jam sessions here in Philadelphia. There's plenty but the circle is ever so small and if you're not part of the "click" then its almost impossible to get in. That's t...(more)

    Hey there Rich. Can't wait to hear the recordings and I must say that I'm envious of the jams. I wish they had them here in Philadelphia and without the stress that comes along with them here as well. By the way Rich, when are you recording? ...(more)

    I totally agree with you Bryan. There's a natural progression involved for those who want to pursue their musical goals and jazz has all the demands necessary. A good example is former Testament lead man <b>Alex Skolnick</b>, who plays progres...(more)

    Hey there fellows.....what is this I hear? Another jazzer choosing to live a life of poverty!!! LOL. You know what they say about the difference between a large pizza and a jazz guitarist? LOL. Anyway, the crow sessions are really cool and m...(more)

    Cort has really shot out of the gates and thrusted themselves into the professional market which is great for them. Some of their signature models include: Hiram Bullock(remember him?). He's making a come back which is also great for the guit...(more)

    Jim is right about how jazzers look at the diminished chord. I had an arranging teacher who would joke about how some pop composers who were stuck on what chord to use in a progression whould just stick a diminished chord there. I guess you ca...(more)

    You can put those two in a paper bag and shake it and still come out with nothing new. What two choices of suicide! a bullet in the head or cutting the jugular. Geeeeezzzz FB

    You are correct. They are often called sopranatino. Hopefully I'm spelling this correctly. There's also bass saxophones but they are rare. I actually worked in a music store in Philadelphia where it was the only one in existence in the whole...(more)

    If I can throw in a suggestion or two. i would go with what Sam suggested but along with that I would grab a few drum rudiment books. Along with note recognition, its important to work on rythm recognition. In school, my teacher had me do two ...(more)

    I found it amazing that so many states majority went for Bush and they know how much of a moron he is. Those states will pay for their ignorance in the coming four years.

    Hey! There's no reason to apologize and you're sure far from being ignorant. Its a life long study and the moment you stop learning in music then you're no long a musician. Wynton Marsalis always jokes that even after what some would surely c...(more)

    Hey there Carl!! I could first suggest that you check out some of the great lessons here at Wholenote, believe me, you can't go wrong. I also suggest listening to some of the greats, not just guitarist but other instrumentalists: Coltrane, Da...(more)

    While studying, I've always been taught to learn the rules then forget them and just play. Even the players mentioned (Remler, Pass), play "out" but its done so suttle that its hardly noticeable. I've learned this studying with Jimmy Bruno. On...(more)

    Here's my two cents. As guitarist we are not privvy to information on other instruments and how they operate, unless you either go to school for music or read/study on your own. Saying that, Jim is correct by saying that it is Orchestration. ...(more)

    No, I do mean <u>Joe</u> Beck. Joe Beck is a great jazz guitarist who got his start with Miles Davis in the early 70's. I failed to mention and I'm surprise CS didn't cut my head off, Mike Stern!! Who also played with Miles Davis.

    Words of wisdom from Charles. I totally agree with everything stated, I hope the english guy didn't take what I said seriously, it was tongue in cheek or shall I say biting humor, (bad attempt, I might add). But the notion of England being a s...(more)
