  • The Language of Improvisation
  • How to Say More on Your Instrument
  • How to Listen
  • Differences and Likenesses of Different Kinds of Music: Jazz, Rock, Blues – Similarities (and how to use them)
  • How to Create Your Own Style: You Have to First Learn How to Play
  • Intro to Understanding Jazz and How to Incorporate it into Rock and Roll (the nuances and the harmonies)
  • Check out this video to get a feel for what this amazing experience is like. See you there!

    Looks like I’ll be joining a bunch of my friends up in the Catskill Forest Preserve, right outside Woodstock, NY for the second annual Roots Rock Revival! It’s from August 18th to the 22nd, and I’ll be posting a longer and more in depth article on this event soon, I just couldn’t wait to share the good news with you :)

    One of the gigs I’m most looking forward to is the Hittin’ The Note party at B.B. King Blues Club (NYC) on March 15th. In addition to playing with Butch Trucks and Oteil Burbridge of The Allman Brothers (and a couple of “special guest guitarists”) – Duane Allman’s daughter Galadrielle Allman will be reading and signing copies of her new book about her father titled “Please Be With Me”.
