I can't wait to see him next month at the Free Hands Academy event in LA. It'll be all gunked up again by then :lol: I doubt anybody puts in more hours than Bob. I take that back, looks like he now has a Porch Board, unless the Beat Root is the other pedal under the Didge. No you're correct. He dum...

always seemed strange to me that so many stick players got to that tune 'Cause it sounds cool! And it's a beautiful melody really. I used to do a looped tune called "Lost At Sea" a long time ago (it was on a demo CD I used to sell at gigs) where the main gist of the melody was lifted from...

I certainly appreciate the kind comments on the old web design. Honest! It served for about 14 years which is incredible in this day and age. I have to point out, however, that the old site was pretty much unusable on any mobile devices which, if you believe the traffic reports, is where a good bulk...

Thanks for the kind comments gentlemen. I've always really liked this tune. Among other reasons I love the fact that it makes for great soloing practice. It's got just enough changes that make it more challenging to solo over but not stupid difficult (if that makes any sense :lol:)

Depending on where I am and what the melody is doing, I'll leave notes out of the bass sides. Generally when I'm playing something that calls for a 7b5 I will either leave out the fifth or the seventh from the bass chord. The missing note will either then be filled in by what the melody is doing or ...

Heck yeah! I think I posted this recently but I wrote a somewhat winded article on the topic of MIDI control in general back in 2003. Considering that was 13 years ago, it's all still pretty up to date and relevant. I still have the same Rocktr...

@gpoorman What instrument were you playing in this band before the stick? Well ... :lol: ... I had revolved through a couple of roles by that point. When the band first started, I played keys and rhythm guitar. After a few serious personnel changes, we lost our bassist. I switched over to full time...

Great question and this could make for a very interesting discussion. Unfortunately based on stories I've heard, your experience is not uncommon. I'll let some of the other folks who also experienced this chime in. For me ... I play solo now but I played Stick in a band for many years. I was very fo...

Just to stay on the Metheny train for a sec ... here are two great soloists for the price of one. First Lyle Mays on synth followed by Pat on the Roland GR-300 guitar synth in what has always been one of his most epic solos.
