Hey Kris, we might do something special to teach the members here the art of improvising and soloing. We're still trying to work out the details. We'll keep you all in the loop. Thanks for the suggestion!

Well we're gonna try to break down the art of improv. So of course that's gonna mean that we start from the basics, which is the pentatonic scales. Then we can analyze the chords and such and how to create them (the 1,3,5 deal) and show how to make extensions (maj7, #11, dim5 etc.) So just be patient and we'll work out the details. We have to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Maybe you guys could get a lesson for the song Grooving Slowly by the John Butler Trio. Not the studio version but one of the live versions with the uke solo. I could provide an mp3 if needed since I'm not sure how many people have heard the song here. He does use a baritone Uke in it which has a different tuning but im sure one of you could work it out for standard. Anyways just a suggestion

i'd really like to learn "Is There A Place". I just love the picking, its mellow and smooth. Is it played on a guitar on the actually song?

LOL

yeah. I had a video on YouTube playing that song but it was on my gf's account. The vid was lost after she shut the account down though... lol.

The song is just F, Dm, Am

The chorus goes F, C, F, Am

Hope that helps :D

i think improv would be amazing to learn.

or maybe some tips on how to mute.


as for the "is there a place" is there a certain way to play it? when i do try to play it, it sounds so dull so i stay away from playing that song

I think it's: G, Bm, Em (2x), C, Bm, Am, D

Bridge - C, D, Em (repeat chords 3x), C, D ///

I don't know if they're exact, but good enough if you just playing by yourself, yeah?

I'm still waiting on the elephant town tutorial vid. Other than what was already mentioned, could you guys do more strumming tutorials and tips and exercises for improving dexterity with both hands?
