its great to be back, and I'm not sure if i read correctly but i think someone wrote that kris wont be making anymore lessons that are free? So i'm guessing that from now on all the free lessons will be guest lessons?


On a second thought, I might do more free lessons, but not as often. Main focus will be here. Now I'm off to do some johnsonisms. wink.gif

great to see the forum is back up

i'm not really sure about my playing, lately i havnt been playing as much, my improvisation has improved alot, but recently i've just been stuck in a rut as well

i havn't really been "practicing" like i should either, but for some reason or another, my playing has become a bit faster/cleaner the past month or so. I'd probably attribute that to improving, and running through scales all the time

Hiya Kris,

Been gigging quite a bit. Practising a lot at the moment, I'm attempting to write 200 original licks, so I've got an extra hour a day practise developing that. Other than that, we're moving house soon, so we've been packing all the kids stuff away.

I've just decided that if I want to really improvise on stage, I need to stop bouncing up and down the pentatonics and 3nps scales like a wounded mouse, and write some licks specific to each area i.e. over maj7th, minor-add6. So I spend one or two days on each and write as many licks only using the notes I've restricted myself to for that day. Arpeggios, difficult fingerings are all in. It's an interesting experiment.

Hope it bloody well works!!!!!!

Sounds like a very smart thing to do - make sure you dont put them down until you really can improvise around with them.

Wellcome back Rob biggrin.gif , yes the upcoming free lessons will rely on guest submissions. However, there are substantial costs involved in having a big site made out of video files. So unfortunately the future of freelicks is not in the free section.

All the free videos will however remain, which still makes it the largest free video lesson site (to my knowledge).

/Kris


So are you still going to make solos, songs, and licks of other artists? for free? Or are you just going to focus on masterclass?

Hey guys, it's good to be back. Lately I've been trying to get my band together and finishing school work n' what not. Not as much time to really practice hard but I'm going to get back into it. :wink:
