Brilliant thanks @Dan
I agree that unlisted YouTube videos are the way to go. When I upload my performances they are always ‘unlisted’ as I only create them to be shared here in the forum.
Ultimately, the purpose is just to share our recordings and things we are working on, so that we can motivate and inspire ourselves and others students.
The Next Step… “Share Your Licks, Lines, & Solos”
I also see a tonne of benefit in sharing things we are transcribing… like little licks, lines, intros, solos, comping patterns etc… and I think this would be a surefire way to encourage everyone to transcribe more.
One of the most common questions I receive is about how to learn to improvise. Slowly we are creating the ‘ecosystem’ here that will allow exactly that. The key is listening and transcription.
We have the Transcription Forum Category here - Tuomo and myself and working on populating it with more transcription studies which will be available shortly.
Then we will be settings monthly exercises on transcribing short phrases such as 251s, and also longer more complex exercises such as transcribing parts of a solo, or transcribing an introduction etc…
I’m really excited for this because it will ensure that I am doing lots of transcription too which is often hard to find the time to do!
