Paco

Thank you so much!

I practice with a metronome all the time, so I can
play colors around each chord. You can play solo
first without any restriction then you can comp
your rhythm.

Thanks,

Tomo

Very cool stuff Tomo!!

Thank you for listening.

G7 G7 C7 G7 then G7 G7 C7 G7 again.
Small version of blues....

When you hear C7, I often hear G7 (b9 or b13)
You can play G D F Ab, sounds like diminish
but 3rd 5th b7 b9 for G7.

I also play Db7(9 or b5). This case I play G aug sound.
G Db B....


Thanks,

Tomo

Hi Paco,

This is a great game! I play solo and you create other parts
after..... it works. Later could you email me this please.

About chord changes, G7 G7 C7 then G7... your changes
had G7 G7 C7 C7 then G7 G7 G7 G7... you know
what I mean?

Do you have mt AYGP dvd?
This is veey similar to one of my demos.

That demo, I did exactly like you did.

1) Played my solo first.

2) Then I play my rhythm guitar part.

This way I have more freedom for my solo,
I can hear many possible harmony. If you play
with backing track, you can't play your changes
(what you really want to hear).

PS, You have excellent taste and technique to
make sound like that! I wish I can do like
you do.

This is also an exercise Wayne Krantz gave when I took lessons from him (I had to be one of the downer students in his teaching career).

He offered it as an exercise to force you to play with the changes in mind, rather than be guided by the ear from the accompaniment, and a way to hear what it's like for others to play with you.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your input.

Wayne is now teaching at Berklee. I saw many his clinic. He does great at
improvise with just a metronome. One section, he taught how to improve over A-7 (b5).
Is was very rhythmic and showed all A dim triads on top strings.

I think we all have very similar approach from Charlie Banacas lessons... crazy ear training
stuff. Practice solo over imaginary changes then work on comping... I like this approach.

You can be sound really good without any accompaniment or band. Then you can be sound
really good with band, more reaction with others. It add more fun.

Thanks,


Tomo

Yeah, diminished triads are one component of what WK was teaching. I wasn't a good enough student to get all of it, but we went over it for a couple of months towards the end of my three or so years with him.

Trying to get through that pile of material he gave me, plus everything else there is to do, at the rate of 20 mins a day is very slow going, I can tell you.

Berklee grad Joey Goldstein also posted a lot of stuff from his Banacas lessons on the rec.music.makers.guitar.jazz newsgroup a few years back.

The hexatonic exercises Joey posted are one of the things I practice a lot, even considering how little time I have to practice, since I like them so much as an interesting way to approach both inside and outside playing.

I still practice chord-tone, too, but I'm not much interested in pursuing chord-scale any further. I use it too much as is.

I had more time and was a much better player before my wife and I started our family 4+ years ago. That's a tradeoff I'm more than happy to have made, though. :)

First of all, you are doing right thing. Running your family now and I know you have a lot of
responsibilities. But more rewarding too.
Thank you for sharing your feeling. I hear you loud and clear.

I have 3 kids, 12 boy, 9 girl and 4 boy. I am very very busy guy. I love my family.
For me family is first. I don't mind if I don't touch my guitar a few days. but when
I touch my guitar, i do things very productive way.

Having a family definitely gives happiness and makes you play better with
your better feeling. Of course there is some down times...

I have learned Banacas stuff indirectly from somebody. That was great.
If you seriously practice his stuff, your wife is gonna divorce you! (just a kidding)
so simplify them to my own way. I am doing my correspondence lessons
like him. This way I can stay home and I can run my family better. Good thing!

Back to music. Wayne likes Dim. triads.
Mick Goodrick likes his Aug. dim play over standards.
I like Maj & min Triads. A lot of possibilities.

PS, chord scales, I know them. But I don't use them
a lot.(thinking)
I like simple way. Life is too short. i like to have more
fun in my life.

Actually, my wife is great about stuff like this. I gotta brag about her for a second.

I'd set up my bass rig and looped the 'Brickhouse' bass line.

Then I got my guitar and started with a hexatonic that was way O-U-T.

After a couple minutes, my wife looked over and commented on how really interesting it sounded.

She's got really great ears, and would play piano seriously if she had more time available.

That's very cool to hear that. My wife is very supportive too.
She is a singer. My daughter is a dancer... I wish my wife
has more time for herself. She is super busy with kids.

Thank you John!

I don't know which one? Maybe G aug or M3 5 b7 b9 goes
into C7? I like to play the sound of chord.

I just post "All of me" kind of same thing. Just played over
changes. Hope you like it.

Thank you so much!

Just to clarify...I never graduated from Berklee. I dropped out after 7 semesters of an 8 semester diploma program.
And Charlie's last name is Banacos.
