    Basic rules in Jazz-dont-sweat-small-stuff-jpg

    Basic rules in jazz would need to be concise and simple in order to apply them, but they would need to be complete, coherent, and rigorous within their scope (jazz, guitar in general, music in general) in order to represent their scope's domain, which means they would be complex and full of exceptions, qualifications, conditions... easily a dozen pages of text for each rule assuming an agreed consensus; and then there would need to be additional appendices of meta-rules that governed when and how these basic rules may be broken...


    I don't think of jazz as rule based; music has always been regarded as the highest of the art forms because it is the most phenomenologically abstract - to the degree that music is representative, these representations are completely internally induced... this is the real compelling power, truth, and beauty of music.

    the first time I read this I thought you said "make sure you get laid" which would be a pretty nice rule too...

    Be able to play what you can hum and hum what you can play.

    I went to school, it was ok. But they don't really teach jazz the correct way.

    But can we sue you if you play too long?

    Anyway, those are great rules, and have inspired me to originate a few others:

    crawl like a viper through suburban streets,
    make love to women, languid and bittersweet,
    rise when the sun goes down,
    cover every game in town,
    make the world your own, make it your home sweet home

    I was going to say "take everything posted on a forum with a grain of salt" but then that advice would fall under the same umbrella !!! hmms talking about jazz stuff is more complicated than just listening too , hearing and enjoying it
