Tomo is also a long time member here who used to freely dispense his knowledge, humor, and kindness here until some jackwagons ran him off.

I follow Tomo on instagram. Excellent teacher and human being.

Bumping this thread because I decided to subscribe. I like his approach and his playing is pretty much what I wish I could do.

Tomo taught me triads on a thread here on TGP. Little Wing up & down the neck in 3 string groupings. Can‘t thank him enough.

also that video of him bending notes on a duo sonic with no thumb leverage at all. That was a real eye opener.

Please explain. This sounds really cool.
here is the thread. He gets to little wing lower down on the first page. Basically play little wing chords as a succession of 3 note triads on string set 1,2,3. then sets 234 then 345, etc. you can play the triads up the neck, in the same 4 fret area etc., inversions, lotsa games.


here is a quote:
“Little Wing"

Basic changes are... (as simple as triads)

E- G A- E- B- (Bb-) A- C G F C D........

Play like this(very simple) ... 123 set strings.

0 3 0 0 2 (1) 0 0 3 1 0 2 (1st E string)
0 3 1 0 3 (2) 1 1 3 1 1 3 (2nd B string)
0 4 2 0 4 (3) 2 0 4 2 0 2 (3rd G string)

Once you start moving those triads around substituting inversions and chords diatonic to your key, and utilize stabs on the 2 + syncopation, instead of steady quarter note strumming, rhythm guitar comes alive. Especially on string sets 234 - not too much bass (that’s someone else’s job), and no interference in the upper voices where the soloist of the moment has the floor.

oh yeah - lots and lots of muting. Nice and tight.

I'm kind of tempted to check out his instructional material. Anyone else tried it out yet?
You can get a lot of his ideas and philosophy from the stuff he posts on YouTube. If you like that, the subscription might be worth a shot. But honestly you can get alot of what he does for free if you can tolerate the ads. The subscription service is kind of a supplement to what he posts publicly, I also see it as a way to support what he is doing.
