    Check out Robben's new instructional DVD - The Art of Rhythm Blues Guitar. He demonstrates some great chords, progressions and rhythms

    Allen also has a few instructional DVD's too worth checking out .

    I know Robben plays a lot of blues progressions. I know a few that have the Robben flavor, but sometimes he has this almost Gospel/RN'B type of feel. Allan Hinds has the same thing. I really enjoy that sound. I have figured a few progressions out thats played in this manner, but I was hoping someone could throw down a few more for studying purposes.

    Check out the progression to 'Revelation'. It has that gospel feel to it. I have it written out somewhere in one of my lesson binders.
    Also, I think Robben goes over it in his Blues and Beyond vid.

    There is a Horace Silver tune "The Preacher" which is what you are looking for. This is a fune tune. Progression is;

    |F | F7 | Bb7 Bdim | F | F| F | G7 |C 7 |
    | F | F7 | Bb7 | A7 | Bb7 Bdim | F D7 | G-7 C7| F |


    There is also another Horace Silver tune that I've heard Robben perform called Doodlin'. I forget that one, but maybe someone else will post it.

    Have fun,
    Jim
