I'm trying to expand my musical knowledge, skills, and taste, by listening, performing, and delving deep into jazz music. Knowing that you are a well renown jazz artist and fan, I was wondering if you could send me a list of not only the basic / essential jazz artists, bands, and records to get into. But also some of the more obscure and greatest jazz artists, bands and records. That would be strongly appreciated as I am very ambitious and eager to get into jazz music.
Love you a7x changed my life can't wait to see what u guys r working on love you guys and thank u for this school this is a great thing ur doing keep it up thank you love you guys and endless respect to you papa gates ur da man
Actually, I just finished the Blues Master Class, it's was very helpful, and I don't have words to say thank you, I am honored to have a high-quality teacher like you and thank you so much for all the knowledge that you share with us here, and the effort that you guys put into the lessons, actually a hard work with an exceptional level!
Much respect and from here a student that appreciates all the time that you invest in every lesson, have a big value!
I'll be sharing my progress with the lessons (if my son let me do it) and hope you like it!
Thank you, thank you, thank you a lot @Brian Haner Sr. !
Hello @Brian Haner Sr. ! I hope that you are well and with much health in times of quarantine. That's the only thing that matters. I've been playing since 13 years old, making 15 years since I've started. In 2011 I have stopped playing, mostly because of going to university while working. It consumed all my time and I hadn't time to practice really.
Since I graduated, I've tried to return a lot of times without success, but now I'm here to learn new techniques!
I've already studied a lot of music formally in the past and came here because there is something to learn always.
Just dropping some love on your head! The students have an Instagram chat and I'm being a blabbermouth and passing on the word that there was like a ten page discussion about how incredible you are and how thankful they were. Especially for how active you are here and how helpful you are.
I don't get in the chat much but when I saw all those wonderful things I had to tell you
Cool blues master class... The jazz blues and jump blues stuff is all relatively new territory... I was hearing also a rather Latin style turnaround in the vein of " One Note Samba" ...not sure, trying EMaj9 GMaj7 CMaj7 B7b9.... Hmmmm....sorta. That's obviously not in Bb
i have to thank you for all you do for us here on the school and for the hell of a site that you guys have created i wish you have a really nice day and good luck in all your projects i hope someday i can meet you to thank you personally for all
The new site looks wonderful! Can’t thank you guys enough! Also looking forward to your blues series, I’m excited about broadening my guitar horizons beyond rock/metal and this seems like a great place for it. (Btw papa gates love your Twitter it’s hilarious lol)
