    Wow! Thanks again.

    Were all those done with the AxeFX?

    You have not been helping with my decision to hold off on more gear (in particular the AxeFX).

    Jack, I just went through the Pat Martino lesson (which I really enjoyed) and learned the main lick. I really like how you present a line that has so many applications. Interestingly, the line that interested me the most was the one that you say "I'm not going to go into detail on this" at around 3:20.

    You modify the main lick in some parts, but it's not readily clear how at full speed. I would really appreciate if you could elaborate more on what is happening with that line. The main lick is played in various octaves, but you bridge the two octaves with other lines that I'd really like to know?

    Also, when you transpose the main lick to various keys - are you just symetricly transposing the exact same line, or are you allowing for more diatonic transposition?

    Really great stuff. Thanks much.

    -Mike

    those are great! thanks!

    would you mind showing us the "mentheny lick" that you used in the "Amin7 Jazzy Lick" video?

    There's a very similar lick on my lessons page. (www.sheetsofsound.net/lessons.html)

    In this case, it's exactly the same line though I will sometimes alter it if necessary.

    Really great stuff. Thanks much.

    Great stuff jack! Thank you.

    Per a previous pm request: I think it would be terrific if you did a video that focused on your right hand. That is, where/how you position it when soloing, the angle of your pick, how you use your fingers for picking, etc. That would be most appreciated.

    Thanks and take care,
