    Default Found it!

    Its been a long time since I watched this segment - not the least because I don't have a DVD player (or an old, old, old VHS player), but mainly because I had forgotten where I saw it. Serendipity seems to have conquered that serious senior moment, and I found this true gem. I don't know how many of you guys have this problem (even Mike Stern acknowledges having had it for a long time, so I don't feel too bad), but playing those outside, yet sweet, sounding lines over changes has always been a mystery I couldn't crack. I could sort of hear it, and went nuts when I heard someone play that stuff, but could never understand what was going on. Needless to say, every lesson I ever watched jumped directly into modes and deep theoretical gobbledygook (to me) that basically left me feeling cold and inadequate, At one point, I gave up, and decided never to call my playing anything even remotely connected to jazz.

    Bordering on deep depression, I crawled through life torn, tattered and defeated...then, this morning, I found it!!!

    Starting at around 15:10, the secret is revealed in a way that even I can understand! I'm going to work on this as my next learning step. I really hope this does the same thing for me that Lee Ritenour's three notes on a string technique did for me in the 80s. Speaking of which, earlier this year, I went to see Lee at Blues Alley in DC which, as some of you know (especially Tele), seats barely hundred people and frequently features giants. Not only did I sit two tables away from Lee, but after the set, I managed to get upstairs, shake his hand, chat a little and thank him profusely for that one tip that changed my guitar playing almost overnight.

    I wish I could do the same with Emily, but....*sigh*...

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Hmmmm....I like to think of Emily Remler's playing as being a little more than night music, but I see where you're coming from..:)

    I wanted to say with my remark that his style of playing pleasing to my ear, like some pleasant music before going to sleep, nothing more.

    I knew what you meant! Her playing is really pretty sophisticated, and if you like her, you'll probably like Jim Hall as well - another of my favorite players.
