The great keyboard player from Jamiroquai shares some fascinating insight into his techniques for playing funk keyboards. A lot of inspiring riffs and bass-lines to learn here!
Phil is a player I admire a lot after I discovered his Pianoteq videos. He’s a fabulous improviser as well as classic player. I enjoyed this discussion of groove applied to classical music performances.
Interesting video by Jamal from Gospel Musicians about borrowing from the relative minor to add tension and interest. Nicely demonstrated and with some wonderful chord voicings to analyse and explore!
I can’t emphasis enough how interesting, educational and entertaining this video is. Jake’s final track (with the help of his collaborators) is pretty epic too. Well worth a watch!
Really interesting analysis of one of my favorite tunes to jam on guitar. The theory gets a bit over my head towards the end but a thoroughly enjoyable watch from Adam Neely.
Another excellent lesson from Jake who shows us how to build chords and progressions from the minor scale. This is a topic I’m exploring myself to provide more options and colours than what you get from the major scale chords.
Yet another lesson from the wonderful Warren. I’ve watched over and over again, replicating what Warren plays on my own piano, There are hundreds of gems in just the first ten minutes, some very tasteful licks, turnarounds, voicings and passing chords. Highly recommended!
Another excellent video from Warren and one of the best lessons you’ll find on YouTube about diminished chords.
This is a topic I’m working on myself at the moment, making sure I can nail these minor 2-5-1 in all the keys. This video is very helpful in showing us the most important voicings and why they work.
One of my new discoveries, Warren is our guide on this fantastic exploration of how to use 2-5-1 progression as passing movement to bring us to the IV and vi chord.
