Re: Joy of Improv for Guitar

The chord voicings are meant for keyboards. I think guitarist need to use Joy of Improv the same way a single note players do. On page 23 of vol I it is suggested that you record the chord progressions and play along with your recording. As for chord voicings Randy Vincent has a book on 3 note voici...

Using Contrafacts to learn tunes.

I thought it would be useful to use the JOI Contrafacts to learn the related tunes. Using Leaf Line to help me learn Autumn Leaves worked great! But when I moved on to The Joy of C I started running into problems at the B section of You and the Night and the Music. The changes don't seem to work as ...

Re: DETROIT SAXOPHONIST

Casio - I played one again today (the 350) and it's tolerable. I need something lightweight, and it runs on batteries
Is that the Casio Privia PX-350? I can't seem to find on any site that it runs on batteries. Do I have the right model number?

Thanks

Jazz Hanon No.1
