Hi all, it’s been a while since I posted anything here, but my committment is still ongoing. Just wanted to share something…. Discovered this simple formula, which reads like a phone number: 151.4545.1 If you play (inverted) major triads or major 7th chords using that progression, with the leading note pattern of a major scale, i I […] View

          Hey Stefan,

          Thanks for your reply. I can see how my initial response creates the impression I was trying to defend the lessons lol. That was not my intention…

                    Thanks for your reply. I appreciate it.
                    I love Vaughns lessons, they are great! It feels like you want to defend it? You dont need to!

                            In version 2,

                            I like a few moments as well, like 0:38-0:40, 1:01-1:05 and the movement of minor chords at 1:15-17 was neat too. Apart from that I struggled with this…

                              In version 3 the contrary scale move at 1:02 was cool. Nice trill at 0:38 and a couple other select moments stood out to me.

                                Hi Keisha,

                                Overall I like the version 1. The sequence of left hand chords seems resonate best for me.

                                But honestly, each piece has different aspects of musical…

                                          Working on playing all movements in the left hand without touching the 1 as my lowest note. Very interesting strategy that forces next level thinking and creativity for rootless chords or substitutes that sound good in a live service.

                                          Did that all day yesterday and it was fun. Bass player kept tuning down his volume to hear what I playing.…[Read more]

                                              Praise the Lord ministrels. I am so grateful to Jesus for this program. In March 2019 I began my reboot of learning music all over again with the right mindset. We lost a most talented musician in January so I was forced to step up my game to improve my playing in every way possible.
