Waiting for my approval code.
Hope I'm accepted! Peter's probably afraid I'm going to become far better than both him and George!! They are probably on the phone debating my acceptance right now!!!
I got them all... As far a I can tell this vids are just to summarise and also promotion for the books. But he's playing great stuff so its nothing like a hoax.
inherited some cash.. how better than spend it on my education. I'm also getting some private lessons from Peter wich is totally awesome.
Just bought the volume on Melodic minor!
Hopefully can start to work on this in the next day or so. I'm still backlogged with the free videos! TONS AND TONS of info and great lines in them, but you do have to have a good grasp of this concept before the free stuff will really help you......
(which I do of course.)
Do I sense a Benson playalong thread coming?
Peter has given out a lot of free content. Will probably pick up the giant line book, and the advanced harmony one when things settle back down a bit. I need to finish my Garrison Fewell books probably, first. I've went through half of the first one.
I was at it for an hour and already picked up 3 different versions of Benson lines I already know. I can BURN on them too. No $ hit.
These lines fall right in line with where my playing stands, and where it needs to go.
What an investment! Really cool chords I have never played before too and odd lines that go with them I have heard Benson play. Diminished major 7th lines for one. Wicked cool lines!!
The amount of work that went into this by Peter and George is unbelievable. I know of no other method that goes into this kind of depth and detail. Now I understand why they cost what they do. The entire set must easily be a lifes work.
So much info it will make your head spin, and they warn you of that! They tell you go slow and fully digest each bit. It is far better to know a few things thoroughly than a lot of things half arse.
It's what you do with what you know, not how much you know! Words of wisdom!!!
I think I could ID George's playing even with something as simple as the riff at 1:06
I'm pretty sure that I would recognize the groove and feel.
Interestingly enough, George doesn’t compose/write anything or at least nothing that anyone else covers. He certainly has a great ear to decide what tunes he wants to play over.
I wish he did. Oddly, this Benson compositions is one of my favorite tunes!
And both versions are phenominal.
I wonder if it's a coincidence that the guy I think is the greatest rock player (beck) and jazz player (benson) write so little.
Here is Benson fan and killer player/teacher Barry Green playing on that.
I just applied some of the stuff I copped from Farrell to a progression that was killing me...
F/C# E/F# G/A Bb/Ab F#-11
You mean you determined T, SD and D and applied Harmonic regions, S2C or Modal interchange subs and played Major, some minor, Harmonic minor, Melodic minor, Dominant diminished, blues, pentatonic with appropriate fingering, picking wisely choosing rhythmic feel and building solo to climax?
Nuh i I copped some lines...
What I did play is harmonic minor, and major...maybe I'll transcribe it....
Can you put in bars? Would like to try it.
Yeah..sure lemme finish my audio work then I'll transcribe it
Odd progression. Is this a moving model piece??
D melodic minor (F/C#) C# Dorian (E/F#)
E Dorian (G/A) F dorian (Bb/Ab) F#Dorian (F#-11) ??????? That works but maybe not in context with the actual tune.
Maybe so. A cursory look finds that Wes wrote D Natural Blues, West Coast Blues, Four on Six, C. Christian co wrote Seven Come Eleven, Air Mail Special, and Solo flight. Even K Burrell wrote Chitlins con Carne. Something to think about, Beck included.
He wrote Weekend in LA. Enough.
I sure wish he did write more. Just put down some changes and scat some melodies! He could have a million blues songs alone!
Probably just enjoys singing and playing more.
