About jerrykramskoy

Some background

I'm an ex-pro guitarist. Technologist. Computer architect. Music theorist. Composer. Received Queen's award for industry 2years running.
Love pretty much all styles of music. Play rock, metal, blues, funk, modern jazz, fusion.
Teach guitar and theory (harmony, melody, rhythm).

My music can be heard on soundcloud:

Writing with Vic Martin (Gary Moore's keyboard player untill Gary's sad demise). Been playing since I was 9. Signed with EMI briefly for compilation album. Studied harmony at age of 34 at Guitar Institute in London, and privately with Shaun Baxter for many years who became great friends. I've been applying and refining this knowledge ever since, and have invented a new method for teaching it without using music score or tab. Written books on theory.

MusicIncite Ltd and emuso(TM)

An 8 year old girl, with no music knowledge, who had never played any instrument, sat with me for about 4 minutes, with paper and pencil in hand. In another 2 minutes, she was sitting at a synthesiser keyboard, and she correctly played a scale, and chords from that scale, in two different keys of her choice (although she didn't know the name of the keys, nor the piano note names). She loved it ... she was making her own music, and it was musical. She didn't realise that anything special was happening ... she just got on with it and had fun.

The principles I touched on with her are embodied in the user-interface of a desktop application, emuso(TM), that MusicIncite is developing.

This provides: a media-synchronised lesson player; fully interactive self-correcting lessons; a music construct reference (any chord, any inversion, any tuning. Ditto scales and pattern inversions ...); a music construct editor; a technique and visual/aural theory practice tool; a unique rhythm explorer; a multi-track music sketch pad; and an ear-training tool.

For players looking to hone their technique, the app also enables easy creation of demanding practice routines.

Students explore musical sounds and their emotional impact from day one.

Our motivation? To help (would-be) musicians rapidly develop musical skills and knowledge to make music . The app and interactive lessons clearly demonstrate the building blocks of music and how they combine. We particularly want to get lapsed players back into the guitar, and bring on those that want to learn as simply and effectively as possible.

The result? Students' ears, eyes, hands and emotions deeply connect with these principles, arming them with all the help they need to confidently play with others, write their own music, and understand other music, rather than play it parrot-fashion. All this with no initial need for music notation, and with little jargon.

Hence emuso(TM).

I personally use emuso for teaching, for technique practice, rhythm practice, and discovering new chord voicings.

emuso status

Friends and Family free release started last week of Dec 2018. We'll take on-board feedback, make changes as required, and are aiming at Beta release in Jan 2019, available for the cost of around three pro- face-to-face guitar lessons. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for. Practice with emuso, learn with it, consult it, try out ideas with it, share your ideas. There's all the help you need packaged up in very professional software and coming with very high quality content. from beginner to advanced.

Promo content finished. The suite of help videos is finished. emuso is now beta-product complete. Marketing campaign completed. Head of guitar signed up (very well known).

To do: Transition the site and web services to AWS.

Teachers and emuso

Very high quality teachers are currently signing-up to create lessons for emuso (40% revenue share for initial signers). Interested? Please contact and mention ultimate guitar.

Skype lessons or one-on-one (London)

I do take on students, but very limited currently, with all the above going on.
