Hi Elysian,I haven't been posting as regularly as I would like. The forums have really help me and I feel the need to contribute back into it. So, let me first say that this might not be the best way of doing it but its my current strategy.I'm currently working on transcribing some lead sheets for an ensemble that I'm playing in now. The music ranges from Jazz to Country and Pop songs from the 70s. We play mostly in retirement homes, coffee houses, and weddings. But you might get something out ...

Hi Kyzik,I was using Band In A Box (BIAB). I think of what scale I want to practice (F dorian) and pick the chord that goes with it (Fm7 - the II chord of Eb). Its not the greatest but it gives me instant backing tracks at what ever tempo I want. I can also export them as a sound file and put it on my ipod if I want.I'd like to be able to make backing tracks like dlraben but I need more time and resources to do it. His stuff is pretty cool...

$10-20 bucks.... try like $100 plus. When Chick Corea came to town a few years back it was $100 to see him play solo piano. Dude, I can't afford that. I think when ZZTop came last year the bleeders were going for $80. Back in the 80's I remember seeing Clapton with Mark Knopfler for only $20. Buddy, I wish tickets would be only $10-20 bucks.... I'd need a time machine to pay those prices.... LOL.... don't get me started about scoring some hockey tickets to see the Leafs play... its crazy...

Are people paying to see this guy? That's always the bottom line. Play what the people want. If they want to see country, jazz, rock, etc... then they will go see it.

If someone is having fun by watching this guy thats all that really matters.Me personally, this guy isn't my thing. I wouldn't pay to see him. But, I would pay to see Ed Bickert or Allan Holdsworth. But, some guys who play really f...
