Re: Hal Galper piano lesson
hey cool Steve .... its nice to see you playing with that approach , Wes showed us the way to play . I would have probably mentioned you as well if I had seen that particular video. but I think all the other videos Ive seen of you ..you are soloing in a kind of 'Martinolike', linear motivic kind of style. I have a heap of Martino albums and I love his playing , but I wouldn't say he was a harmonic/melodic player( in that if I heard only his solo sans accompanyment that I could clearly hear a harmonic progression). Im pretty sure Pat can do it though if he wanted to ... but Im thinking more along what players like Pat Metheney and julian lage do
heres a video of Julian Lage playing solohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHMOyKiuB08
his solo starts around 3:10
Hes pretty clearly outlining the form the whole time with mostly single notes. Hearing stuff like this made want to try to apply it to stick
Btw steve I'd love to see your approach to playing a ballad on the stick .... have you got any posted ?
I used to have the stick night 99 video and I remember enjoying your tone and time on that video.
