    Is naming chord progressions numerally better than letter naming?

    Actually it's less academic and more of an industrial/commercial reality in light of how successfully the number system has worked in Nashville for over 1/2 a century. Id say it's more academic when considering tunes with really complex harmonies which are rarely if ever encountered at a gig or...

    no derail at all - very cool insights that i need to look into. although im not in 12 or 6 on the example, the reason for me puttin it in four with a triplet feel is so i can use this stuff on gigs where it's 4/4 with triplets be it, Tom Petty or a blues shuffle, etc ...

    Is naming chord progressions numerally better than letter naming?

    The numerical system has been proven to be formidable in professional situations in which decent money is on the line for the purposes of expediency. How often are tunes with sophisticated harmony like stella or giant steps employed in professional situations to expedite the process in which...

    Is naming chord progressions numerally better than letter naming?

    When playing music that actually gets gigs ($150-600 a man), the numeral system is great because the progressions are simple enough, plus so many singers of different ranges sing the common tunes. So for all practical purposes, one numerical chart replaces 4 or more charts written alphabetically...

    Chord tones- the thing that will take my playing to the next level

    They are can never be enough posts endorsing Chord tone soloing. Eventually The only scales you will use will be pentatonic's which are basically arpeggios with one Melody note anyway. In the words of one of my students when he would play that right cord tone on the next chord change, "that's...

    What To Practice When Time Is Short

    Yup , consistency is it. If you have only 5 minutes a day, practice that one thing for those 5 minutes until they add up. At this point it's important to first identify core concepts such as developing your own sound, timing & technique. Then apportion the core stuff over those short periods and...
