The new CDs have just arrived via UPS! That means they will be available at tomorrow's show in Miami! Yay
Thank you to Ryan Lindberg aka Koresma for recording this show and to Mike Wilcox for the beautiful artwork!
Come on up to Cutler Bay this Saturday! This is going to be a really fun show in a great sounding venue close to home.
You can have Bohemian Flamenco Concert or a Guitar Player Workshop in your Home. It costs nothing and is really fun.
Contact me for Details.
Happy #fingerstylefriday night.

One of the most basic chord progressions in jazz is the -ii V7 I. You'll find it everywhere. So it's good to learn possibilities for improvisation within it. If we take little melodies or licks that we know sound nice we can use them to build our own melodies. So here's a little example of something that works over this progression. I have added a -vi chord at the end just to allow you to feel a sense of momentum. I'll play it in a medium tempo and then I'll play really slowly. (-ii V7 I -vi) Why don't you post some of your own that you're working on or try to work this one up if you like it. It's just another way to build yourself a roadmap of melodies you like. It's just one of many ways. It's a long journey and it never ends. Have fun.
PS if you want it deeper explanation I would be happy make a longer video for the website or YouTube.
It's Fingerstyle Friday eve!

Music from the TV Show Hee Haw was a huge influence on me and helped inspire me to learn to play guitar. (Also shaped my sense of humor) Buck Owens and Roy Clark were some of my early heroes! Who were yours?
