Well I'm quite new on the site (an old lonesome guitarist of 63 - next year I'll have finally the right to sing Lennon's "when I'm sixty-four"!)
Seriously here is my profile : I played guitar in the sixties (Rock, Blues...) in cover band. I've learned piano and theory (classic) in Academy school 5 years in this time.
My professional life of (shall I dare ? Banker...) is over and I start a return into music. My level ? Huh....I like blues, fusion, jazz and rock.
I follow a few jazz lesson with a professional Jazz Guitarist (Guy Raiff - Belgium) but find a bit too academic (however I like theory)
I work on : Room 335 (theme and chords ok but improvisation give me difficulties)
Quite well Sunset (Gary Moore) but Tak Matsumoto's cover
Working on Lucarelli's <Pentatonic add sixth and doing quite wel PiotrKakczor's Ballad and Blues (except passage of 0,30time)
My material : Fender strat Us Amplifier Vox Boss blues Intend to buy a Music man (with Piezzo - Petrucciani model)
My difficulty : velocity mad.gif

Hi Bob, great introduction ! laugh.gif

You have an issue with velocity you say ? Speeding up those fingers ?

Even though this isn't your style of music, you might find it useful to run through this every day.. or every couple of days.

How about your picking hand ? smile.gif

Hey, I am/was also working on Lucarelli's Minor add 6th lesson!! It's a great one! Before that, I did (for my first and only REC take thus far) his "Scofield Style" lesson. If you like the Minor add 6th, you should check that one out too!!


Check out my awesome Nintendo Cover-band, EMULATOR!!

Now.....go practice!!
