    I was able to open the midi file - the other file extension requires an add-on app for me to open it in Sibelius - and fix a few notes you'd gotten wrong.

    Great stuff. Thank you again.
    I was wondering if you could say something about the fingerings / positions you chose. Just curious.

    Where can I get a copy of the book with CD? Amazon only shows kindle version. I prefer the paper version.
    Come to think of it I don’t even have a computer with a CD drive anymore. Are the tracks available in mp3 by any chance?

    That's where I got it. Carol even plays several of the examples from the book on the CD. (Joe Pass plays most of them. When the book first came out it was with a short cassette, so there wasn't room for many of the examples.)

    It's Carol who plays the material on page 35 (the blues lines we're working on).

    No, it sounds fine now except for the robotic rhythm. I put it into a blues track in Band-in-a-Box and quantized it with a swing feel but I'm not able to save the file as an mp3 for some reason.

    Sure. I originally learned these as close to being in one position as I could, but a lot of the intervals are awkward to play that way, so I experimented with shifting so that the chromatic passages in particular would lay on one string at a time. To be honest the constant down-up picking doesn't swing that well and to me kind of defeats the point of all 8th notes. Ideally I'd shed them for a while and see where to put legato articulation in strategic spots, because it's going to sound just as sing-song to put it in on every other note as it would to play all picked.

    To order both the book and CD, here's several sites that appear to have (with CD) in stock:
    --Alfred.com (Alfred Music)
    --Guitarcenter.com
    --Musicarts.com (Music & Arts)

    So I have the book without CD - anyone know where one can get the CD or mp3? Hate to order a second book, happy to pay for a download of the recording.

    You can buy the CD (only) for $8.75 at carolkaye.com. Look in the catalog section. On page 3, I think.

    I'm still working on this. Taking me longer than I thought it would to get it right and up to tempo. Hangin' in there!

    Okay, gang. First take. I'm a firm believer in leaving lots of room for improvement. ;o)

    (Used new Focusrite iTrack Pocket for this. Took me longer than expected to get the hang of it----mainly because I needed to change a setting on my phone, not because the gizmo is hard to use.)

    It's taking me some time to work through this. Thanks for the Midi! Do we have a time limit for every new exercise?

    Hey Mark, nice job! I see you played it around the third-fifth positions, like the first poster (sorry I don't remember your name brother, I'll look later).

    The only things I noticed were a few issues with time, no biggie. I would suggest recording your own backing track of Freddie Greene type comping, then play along with that. But whatever, you're doing great! I really think this JP material is tops for developing the jazz language on the guitar.

    I must confess that I have signed up for yet another Berklee class, so am delayed from this thread, but am still playing a little bit of it as time allows and intend to get back to it.

    You guys please keep it up.

    I'm on the way! I like to do clips with the playing memorized, and I'm having trouble keeping this first section in my memory. But I'm working on it and will post, hopefully this week!

    I prefer that to, but the nature of this exercise---unbroken eighth notes---makes it hard to memorize! For me, anyway. The parts I do memorize, I can play faster, but then there are the parts I haven't, so I stumble. I'm forcing myself to play it through with a metronome, which I don't like, but in the long run, it will help me.

    I studied some of the solos in this book ages ago. For a vid and tabs go here.

    And by coincidence did I record a recent take last month:



    The clips are 13 years apart and so are the guitars!!!!!

    I sent a request to Dirk and Matt to change the title of this thread to:

    [study group] Joe Pass Guitar Style.

    That should make it easier for people to find and get back to.

    Changed the way I fingered this and wanted to see if I could play it from memory. Taking it slow, more as a rubato intro than a keep-it-moving straight eighths exercise. At least, that was my intent.

    Still needs work but this is my favorite of the 3 blues so far.

    Unfortunately for us lesser mortals, it shows that tempo has a lot to do with this. DB's tempo is both enviable and necessary.
