    I asked because I'm working with David Becker's intro to jazz from the blues. The whole video is working around G7. I would like to discuss his endeavor.

    There are a lot of learning resources out there. I go there when I need to get inspired or get back on track. usually sign up around Christmas causes the All Access drops down more than any other time. Thanks for the replies. That "fretboard breakthrough" is good.

    Well I looked into it and found out what it was. Do you think it's worth it? I can almost assure you with 100% certainty that I won't be going for the 10-year program.

    I have both of Matt Schofield's Blues Speak courses. More than enough to keep me busy for a long time. All access is IMHO just too much info that I will never be able to absorb. I'm more interested in learning the blues at the moment and too much info would probably distract me from concentrating on one thing and getting it right before moving forward.
    When I retired last year I was looking for something to jump start my playing and improve my soloing skills. I can't say enough about the quality of Matt's courses and the user interface. My fretboard skills are beginning to show some real improvement, albeit after hours and hours of studying and practice lol.

    I did a couple years ago. It's a fantastic resource. I didn't use it enough.

    The courses don't teach much theory, though. It's mainly people teaching 'how to' but leaving out the 'why'.

    I hear you on the blues. Guess I'm ADD cause I jump around a lot. Schofield sounds familiar so will check him out.
    NOt sure what you were looking for but there are some good theory guys on there now, there could be more. Of course I'm learning a lot here from the guys ahead of me. I've watched a lot of Robbin Ford and his approach to the blues. Most is over my head but not all and he drifts into theory. I think most of those guys do so your getting where there coming from.
    Years ago I saw a Ronnie Earl instruction tape where he demonstrated the 3rd and flat7 harmony in a three fret span for the blues 145. Same on this Becker tape so it rang a bell. No root note just that third and flat 7.

    I think you should wait till Dec. It's a bill I think around Christmas. In the mean time they used to have a student access for a few weeks for free that let's you get into a lot of there tapes online. If they still do that you can see for yourself. I think it's worth a bill to have the access for a year. I've done for two years now and will do it again if they offer that discount in Dec.

    It's a real guitar/music course. Howard Morgen was a great teacher.

    I checked that some of Matt's rhythm as a springboard. That's some powerful stuff... really funny that he was just using the third and flat 7 in that." If you don't feel it don't play it"

    I have Howard Morgan's "Fingerboard Breakthrough" course. In the case of this course, it's all about the "why"-- the "how to" follows logically with the understanding of the "why". Howard's style is clear and easy to follow, and he addresses the very things that I've struggled with, me coming from a basic piano background. It's partly through this course that I'm learning to think less in terms of shapes and more in terms of intervals and relationships, all the things the shapes are derived from. It's good stuff.
