I do not remember. Somehow I just practiced 10 hours a day. I really cannot do that anymore though.

Wow that is cool! I like the way you think there too-looking at all possibillities. I am lazy and go to www.looknohands.com and the program shows all the scales in all alternate tunnings. Well not all, but your system can help make the overwhelming more possible there. Good job. Your limit makes sen...

[/quote] Yes Joe's knowledge about theory is certainly immense, but I totally disagree with that statement ...take "the rain song" and tell me those chords miraculously appeared under his fingers when he composed this? no way. :peace[/quote] Well, yes because the fingerings are very easy to the Rain...

Parallel Fifths! Now that is the main reason why theory does not transfer for me. Sure they teach about Debussy with his Parallel Ninths and all. What I mean is what is the world is the theory for Power Chords? One day I was trying to figure out what scales and modes went well with an E5 'chord,' an...

Sometimes I wonder where in the world did Jimi Hendrix and Vai come up with the Whammy Bar riffs? The only thing that I can think of is the Trombone or something. I never read a manual on Trombone technique though. I wondered about this for years. Some would argue that the whammy bar stuff wasn't a...

Stummped!

Okay so I studied Classical Theory and a little Jazz. I know my modes and chords. I wonder how it directly applies to Rock and Roll or metal though? My new train of thought says that it does not. I mean yes, Rockers and Metallers borrow ideas from Classical theory and Jazz theory, but if you apply t...

I would like to ask how these classical players perform on the BBC. What I mean is do they sit stiff while they play, or do that move their heads to the beat, and sort of dance around on stage. The reason why I ask that is because there are two schools of thought here in America about Classical Musi...

Yeah, Education is Business mainly these days.



Don't forget about Frank Gambale's LAMA (Los Angeles Music Academy) over in Pasadena

Good luck.
