    FYI.... from another thread. Some advice for how to practice lines. This has worked for me.

    That's the idea. You have to internalize these lines, get them stuck in your head, learn how to play them on different sets of strings and then they will become part of your vocabulary. And.... you will tweak them over time and then they will become yours...

    The way I practice them is get a metronome and a timer. Put the metronome on 40 BMP and set the timer at 5 mins. Play the line perfectly (100% concentration - no TV) for 5 mins ridiculously SLOW! It's hard to play them super slow and perfect. Then set the timer for 10 min and work the tempo up slowly.

    My Metronome: http://a.bestmetronome.com/
    My Timer: http://timer.onlineclock.net/

    Then practice them the same way moving them around the I, IV and the V. Then in tri-tones. Then up minor 3rds. Then up major 3rds.

    Make that part of your daily practice routine. Practicing lines gives you vocabulary. Transposing them around teaches you motivic development.

    Sometimes it takes me weeks before I can get the lines from the practice room to the gig. Just take it slow. Everybody has 15 mins a day they can do this.

    Nice! It's a strong sounding line, but I don't know about using it over a V7 chord (at least in the relationship you have in the video).

    If you guys are hanging with me here. We now have 5 Jazz lines that we can transpose around the neck and quote and play in the blues. And if you downloaded all the Free TAB/NOTATIONS, you now have a book of how to practice these.

    Now it's time for the hard part.... drilling these into Muscle and Ear memory. You have to play these every day now for at least a month...

    Only have 1 hour a day to practice?... this is what I'd do.

    Play each line for 10 mins each.... the first 5 mins put the metronome on 40 BPM and focus 100% of your attention on playing perfectly at that tempo. Then use the 2nd 5 mins to take the tempo up...

    Only have 10 mins a day to practice.... come on man, who doesn't have 10 mins a day to practice?? Just do one line per day...

    You will be surprised as to what happens..... just saying :)

    Great advice Dave, playing at a slow tempo really lets you know where your time is at and is so helpful. Also about the 10 minutes a day. A lot can be accomplished in a short time of focused practicing.

    Cool stuff, great job!

    Chuck
