Thanks Jen. If you happen to tour again here and pass by Edmonton AB, send me a message so we can meet. I'm serious!


I will. Though I doubt that we'll be back before 2016 or so, since that is how it works with the bigger jazz festivals. If you find yourself in the Netherlands let me know :)

Yeah, it was pretty funny. I'll be sure to make all the preparations for your initiation ceremony in the Hess-collective hahaha

:haha:

And I'm glad you like the map. If you have suggestions for future articles/lessons/eBooks I would value your opinion very much. I have 2-3 articles already in the queue, but I'm always on the hunt for good ideas.
Well, if I think of anything, I'll throw it your way. :)

Hey crazysam. Seems that you are now part of a covert conspiracy of the Hess-clan "or some larger, more nefarious force"

That link didn't work, but that idea is pretty damn funny to me. :haha:

Anyway, I really like the lessons you write. I signed up for your newsletter and got the music theory map. Very nicely done. :)

Nice article on improvisation, although how come in the Comfortably Numb solo where Gilmour constantly hits the B note and fights the progession it does not sound dissonant?
Thanks


This is one of the exceptions I was mentioning in the article. The guidelines I've written are meant to be a starting point, after you get them then you can use all the "wrong" notes that you want and make them sound good. Anyway, why it works? 1) the song is in B minor, so B is the root note and will sound acceptable on all chords in the progression 2) there are no wrong notes but only wrong resolutions. Resolution does not only mean to play a "wrong" note, and then a "right" one. It also mean to play a "wrong" note long enough that the chord change and our note becomes a "right" one since the chord has changed. This is what Gilmour is doing on Comfortably Numb. Hope this answer your question, let me know if you need more explanations :-)
