    good Ted-you kept it inside the blues scale mod-wise!
    now what is the Greek name for it...?

    hmm, well you're probably looking for 'penta' greek for 5, but I'm pretty sure I'm doing some major scales in there (octa for 8) and some blues scales with that extra note, I don't believe there is a greek name for the blues scale, but someone please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    it could be that I'm playing a minor b7 lydian scale, i'm still confused about this, but would not the root still be D since I am playing along at mostly the 11th fret as my root, and my tele is tuned 1/2 step down right now?

    if that would help. I don't just sit at the 11th fret, I'm all over the board.

    I think that's a "penta-flentonic". Good take Ted!

    I'm wondering what angle to take on my next take on this great backing!

    Maybe a Lydian Chromatic (George Russell) angle on your next take on this Ted. And after that....how about breaking loose with a Harmelodic (Ornette Coleman) interpretation to reinforce that cutting edge fershizzle you are known for.

    In all seriousness Ted, I do hear a great deal of improvement, which I know takes a lot of work. I don't listen to your posts very often so maybe your improvement is less incremental to my ears because I give it such time spans between listens. I recommend you find a local instructor if you want to speed improvement, and don't worry about the perfect teacher, just jump in and give the guy at least a quarter or half year of commitment before you analyze or pass judgement on your progress. Chow baby.

    Dave -- Thanks, I realize I need a teacher to get to this stage that everyone calls "better"

    John -- Never heard of the Stanislav method. Maybe I need to learn that with one of Scott Peterson's MySpace friends!! I don't think the "rhythm method" is reliable. Probably why there are so many TGP'ers!!

    Hey John Findlay. Love your playing, beautiful backing. Scott Lerner has repeatedly encouraged me to go and listen to your posts in these member clips. I think we attended Bezerklee about the same vintage.

    Dave Steves-hi- Bezerklee--many evening of Teen Town-
    drunken corpses arriving on the elevator--mmmm-good pizza.


    I only went for a summer semster-did ya know Matt Horner-pianp player-he was there for 3 years I think-or Joey Goldstein[guitar]-another Canadian lad.
    He and i have worked together for years.

    Ted-I couldnt remember the real name of the method/book at that moment so i substituted Stanislav-which mite be a school for acting--?

    Cant think of the name -its this book full of chromatic scale patterns:Slominski?......?....help!

    Hey John...
    Just wanted to say "Hi" if you're still out there.
    I visited your site and your clips sound really really fine.
