I'd say something like this:
"The Things I Learned from Barry Harris study group"
This study group is for fun and basic accountability in working on the ideas presented in Chris ??'s videos, the first which is posted here:
To start things off, post your version of the same in this (not yet created) thread. Our deadline for this first one is the 29th. Of course, feel free to post after as well. Discuss questions and philosophy of fingering approach etc etc.
Anyway, cut, paste, edit, rip apart...

to feel it out, whos interested? id participate and maybe sort of get it going. in my opinion id do a whole month per video since we all are working on multiple things, plus we need to be learning all positions and at tempos that are challenging

also multiple ways in each single position due to which octave of scale we select

Practicing the Half-Step Rules in Time?
Quick question for those who have been working with this stuff:
How do you practice the Half-Step Rules in time? I mean, if you have a backing track or something measuring out a bar or two and you practice tonic to tonic with one half step, how do you get that in one bar or two?
For example, starting from the second with no half steps I have nine notes (if I go to the tonic as in the chart in Page 8 of the Howard Rees DVD booklet). Now I try with two half-steps from the second so I have eleven. Now from the third I have eleven with one half step, but 13 with three...
In short, I have an odd number of eighth notes increasing each time until I am up to seventeen notes starting from the b7. That's two bars plus one eighth note. How do I practice that in a musical context?
What I want to do is have a backing track playing a vamp of, for eg, two bars of C7 and two bars of F7. I can practice one rule over C7 in time and the same over F7. Then maybe starting from a different note, etc. But I'm thrown as to how to do this rhythmically over actual music.

Hey Rhett, at one point in the Reese book he has you start playing them down to the 3rd...I forget at which point he starts doing that

Personally, and I understand this might make me a BAD PERSON, but I just practice the scale for one bar, so
C B Bb A G F E D | C - break for the rest of the bar
D C Bb A G F E D | C - break for the rest of the bar
E C D B Bb A G F | E - break
F E C D Bb A G F | E - break
And so on
Please don't use a backing track. You don't need it. The changes are in the line.
C7 --> F7 - one bar each, say, this is fun. Apply the appropriate rule from the start of the bar.
C B Bb A G F E D | C Bb A G F E Eb D | C
E C D B Bb A G F | Eb D C Bb A G F E | Eb
G F E D C B Bb A | G F Eb D C Bb A G | F
And so on....
