i think people here can benefit from this.

this whole dvd is a bible to me, in terms of how i approach things. especially this example on the blues.

if you listen to any of my blues recordings on my profile, all of that was just me studying and applying scott's ideas.

i have both dvd's this one, and the jazz fusion improv one. those 2 are essential for any serious musician in my opinion.

it's so true what he says at the end about beginning jazz players who have no experience with the blues, who haven't properly went through learning the blues.

i always live by the fact that if you can't play blues, you can't play jazz.

I didn't watch the video, but being able to play blues is pretty important. Basically
rock & jazz both come from there. It's an oddity. It's both easiest to get started
improvising on, yet many people can't play it very well. 3 Dominant chords.
Theory doesn't explain it very well. Is it 1 key? Is it 3 keys? The answer is: yes. or
no.

Awsome lesson!

just yesterday I played a great acoustic guitar that just inspired me to try some blues, and i noticed I just repeated some licks a few more times, but never making it sound the same..but I never really thought about it until I saw this video

Thanks a lot

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

One funny thing is that I'm taking an online music appreciation class that fulfills some requirement I need (and it's 3 units with zero class time. gg) and this lesson is exactly the same as the first thing I had to do. We listened to a piece by Handel (See Here the Conq'ring Hero Comes) and had to identify the two different ideas and the unity and variety used by the composer.

There is a reason that people who play and write great music know and use these techniques. It's because they work. Everyone should do this.

I've actually posted that video here a number of times. I like it a lot more than Melodic Phrasing.

this is the dvd, it comes with both the video on him explaining what to play over different chords, and the video on phrasing.
