Chuck, thank you from the bottom of my heart for starting irocku. I’ve been getting by with generic style advice I glean from a few books, ... or youtube videos plus a precious few US-released transcriptions, whose difficulty and accuracy are very variable to put it nicely. So many of the melodies, harmonies, and rhythms are just completely wrong, and the ones that get it right are usually so comprehensive that they are better for museums than a gigging keyboardist. Simpler monophonic solos I can pick out by ear, but by and large I’m helpless.
You guys get it right. You integrate learning and general musicianship into the lessons, provide both the specific note-by-note transcription as well as the global groove map so we know where we are in the big picture, and all in a multi-tiered structure for many ability levels. Damn!!! JimS
I am very excited to delve deep into these lessons. I have been playing your solos for about 20 years and have always been "missing" a few notes. Although, I am steeped in the blues, the blues and jazz books don't really cover the classic rock songs in the way that they infuse blues, rock and gospel . I'm very excited to hone these solos and get back out there to perform them. Frank S
