Dear all,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that our very own Virtual Bands Coordinator and Moderator Smells has put together a cool lesson aimed at beginners who want to understand how to go from simply playing scales to actually improvising licks ... very well explained, complete with spoken video.

Now you have no excuse - get over there and start improvising!

Thanks Smells smile.gif

(This is the same lesson smells posted earlier in the Virtual Bands section but we thought it deserved a wider audience)

Andrew, could we take this lesson one step further. I would really like to be able to bookmark smells' lesson. It's presented well in laymans terms and need it as a reference as I make my journey to finding my own style. As the recording forum fill's, the lesson will disapear as well as your post here. So what do you say? No disrespect to all the instructors here as they are great, and I enjoy watching and practicing each one that my ability will allow. I think this future senior and possibly instructor is well deserving of the time he dedicated to doing this vid. Also, from reading his posts, he plans more!

Just my 2 cents,
Steve

That would be up to Kris of course, but I do agree that this is an awesome lesson and Smells is on the fast track to GMC stardom smile.gif

We will have to figure out a way of making the aspiring instructors lessons more prominent.
