hey man thanks for asking,
humm I got distracted alot by the overload of information that I was getting over the internet, jazz forums, youtube videos, friends, opinions, my friend who is a very well acomplished jazz piano player etc,,,
I wasant taking lessons due to some financial problems I was having so I kind let my self drift way from the scales due to all this things and people`s advice.
like my friend the pianist was asking me , why do guitar player get so hung up on scales , he doesnt know a lot of scales or arpeggios but oh boy he can play a hell of jazz on the piano.
stuff like that.
But now im taking lessons with Pebber Brown and I`m going to follow his lead and I know I will get some where, we all need a teacher this fre stuff on youtube wont get us anywhere.
Are you Pebber`s student as well?
