    I just use those Rt 3rd 7th form. Simple chord forms.

    Root on 6th or 5th strings.

    3rd & 7th on 4th & 3rd strings.

    You did apply from my AYGP Ex19 into

    a) F blues

    b) F jazz blues

    c) F parker blues

    hope you enjoy it.

    From F blues to F jazz blues to Parker blues

    (This is not jam track)

    That's a great example of putting the exercise to work. I worked on ex19 for quite a long time and can tell that the effort was well worth it.

    Tomo,

    great stuff.I glean a lot from your post & really appreciate it.
    1 question(somewhat off topic): I've been studying the rest stroke technique
    (A plectrum style used by Django Reinhardt). it's a forceful style devised to get maximum tone & volume out of the instrument.
    would this conflict with what you teach in AYGP?
    if you need more info on the style:

    thanks

    Thanks. If you like Ex19, try just groove over Bb7 on chord.

    Set your metronome 42 on (2&4 thing), then 52...

    After 62, you can play more down stroke (less up stroke),
    that would be next person's question.

    My AYGP will aimed more toward "having good techique"
    for all styles. Same direction.

    Thank you!

    Tomo, the link would not open. Can you please explain this in terms of theory? I assume that you are goinfg from pentatonic, to blues scale (add b5) to chromatic w/ all extensions. It would be nice to hear the sound clips. Does your DVD go into al ot of this sort of exercise?

    I am not a huge fan of theory. All you need to know.

    Rt 3rd 7th form. (I have to clean up here now so I will wrote more later)

    Major7 Rt M3 M7

    Dom7 Rt M3 b7

    minor7 Rt b3 b7

    (Dim7)

    Yes, my dvd will show you how to play this concept from blues to
    jazz blues.

    Alkl you do is learn this concept(simple) then apply them to
    other tunes.

    If you have to think difficult or count something like a math...

    Catch you up later,

    Very nice! For the finger-stylists amongst you, Bucky Pizzarelli was a master with these simple voicings and his comp is a pretty useful, easy to learn and cool sounding tool!

    Thank you so much for your words. I am glad that you liked it.

    I teach this Rt 3rd 7th, several ways. For fast groove like Django style,
    i do use more down stroke, but I use some up stroke for some accents.
    Personally I love this styles and I usually practice these (very slow to very fast)
    with my acoustic guitar. No conflict, good technique from my AYGP will help
    your style. No need to change your style. My AYGP will help your foundation for
    your strength. Keep on!

    PS, These Rt 3 7 swing grooves really help to improve funk style and
    great preparation for jazz changes to hear. (for soloing).
