Played to the best of MY ability. You might have to crank this one. I might try and do as Liszt did with the 5th Caprice in the future.he just used the intro and coda and played a totally different caprice in the middle. Dedicated to

Buy my album Presto-digitation! on or iTunes now! I decided to make this vid after watching all of the so-called legato lessons on youtube (not ALL of them, just all I could stomach). It was a galvanizing experience and my mission was clear: to share with all youtubers what I've figured out in the past 14 years about Legato since the inception of my quest. It all started in early 1994 after viewing Garsed's Masterpiece, Rock Fusion video. I Click here to buy my FIRST full-length album: Much Love and Many Thanks to my fans all over the world!! Your support has helped me so very much over the past decade.I'm not sure where I'd be without you all.

We take a look at a particular idea that demonstrates the effectiveness of hybrid picking executed along side legato electric guitar playing. Allan Holdsworth in the country.

Here are most of my guitars accumulated through years of excessive spending. Noticeably absent is the Conklin 8 string with fanned frets (which I would near kill to have back). Also gone is the GMW-Moser made by Lee Garver; I would love to have that guitar back.

This is the perfect etude certainly on par with Chopin's technically but not as original. At times it seems to exceed some of Chopin's etudes as far as virtuosic grandeur. This piece was used by Rachmaninoff as a warm up so apparently he thought much of it too. You can hear this played professionally on itunes and you can even download Josef Lhevinne playing the extremely rare Schloezer etude 1 op1.

title says it all. The piece we're playing over is Joint Ventures by the Johannsen brothers off of the album Heavy machinery. It features tasty diminished/outside licks by Allan Holdsworth check it out if you can find it.

If you want to skip the intro and get right to the licks go to 2:00. Here we discuss some of Holdsworth's more inspired guitar ideas (IMHO).

Sorry about the mealy-mouthed definition of Swybryd Picking at the beginning of the video, I should've just said that Swybryd Picking is simply economy picking with fingers AND pick rather than pick by itself. When I spoke of the ease of upstroke + hybrid pick combinations. I meant to also add that (upstroke + hybrid (either m,r, or p)) is analogous to sweeping across multiple strings with a single pickstroke ie they're both instances where you get two or more notes for a single picking motion. One can also pick thusly: downtroke followed by hybrid-pick (either m, r, or p) but it is slightly less natural than upstroke followed by hybrid-pick for me for whatever reason. I really don't enjoy focusing so intensely on the technical mechanics of music-making but it really makes guitar playing effortlessly enjoyable in the long run. All that's required is mastering a few technical ideas. Upon completion of this lesson , the perceptive student will also recognize how important banjo rolls are to Swybryd picking. In short, The goal here is to make scary virtuoso guitar playing relatively easy.

The intervallic material had to be cut off to stay under YouTube's time restrictions. Sorry if the video ends abruptly.

Here we are experimenting over a latin vamp with some really outside labratory ideas. Hopefully no ears were harmed in the process. It was great having an amazing player like DG pushing the envelope here; I really felt obligated and inspired by the whole experience to really go for it.

The Coda of Rachmaninoff's Prelude 13 op 32 is monstrously fun and terrifyingly difficult. Most professionals steer clear of it the only player who truly owned it was Alexis Weissenberg. Most players who have to play it to complete the set usually wimp out and record it at practice tempo. This take was a little better than the previous one up here and it features the new Yamaha Clavinova cpl-230.

Roasting comics is fairly common on YouTube now. As a contrarian I thought it would be fun to take a quick look at what makes an entertaining or generally good comic experience. This offering from Diversity & Comics (R.C. Meyers) features many of the devices that make for a good read.

Composer: Pancho Haralanov Vladigerov (1899-1978) Pianist: Mac Hine (2010-) This piece has not been recorded (to my knowledge) and has largely been ignored by modern pianists. The ipad music notation software Notion was immensely valuable in the realization of this music. I tried to include as many details from the score as possible. Pedal markings had to be ignored because they would make the software crash. I have finished the 2nd prelude from this set and am working on two others. Look for those later. I will also upload other rarely played composers' works as much as possible. Marc-Andre Hamelin would be the ideal pianist to record these given his familiarity with Vladigerov and his super-virtuoso status.

At about 1:30 I start over after a false start. Oh well, nobody’s perfect. Consider supporting my Patreon and consider subscribing. Thanks for your continued support and interest.

One run towards the end went pear shaped, but overall I just went for it and tried to focus on a sweeping, majestic feel.

Please enjoy this rare favorite from Maestro B----- Imagine what this would sound like recorded in a real studio with state of the art equipment and noise reduction techniques. OH well a person can dream. Thanks to Cyprien Katsaris for letting me play along with his great recording

It probably doesn't converge but I just couldn't resist using RMT on Ramanujan's most beautiful identity as judged by Hardy-Littlewood. Where else have we seen an integral that gives values of the partition function p(n)?

The highly utilitarian book I mentioned in the vid for analytic computation of inverse Laplace transforms by contour integrals (and a myriad other useful topics): Advanced Mathematical Methods for Engineering and Science Students by Stephenson and Radmore, Cambridge University Press, 1990

Title says it all. I love how this one went, what an effective transcription I've studied the art of transcription a lot in many different formats and this one is right at the top. Liszt would've loved this one (maybe not my playing) but the treatment itself. This gives you so much bang for your buck as in you don't have to be a world class virtuoso to play it for great effect.

I love how Spheres look in Minecraft. So I built a few and though they ain't perfect they did take awhile to build so I thought I should make a recording after all the effort it took. A few nice images are combined with one of my favorite pieces of music in this video. The music is by Pancho Vladigerov and is titled Improvisation (Orchestrated)

Please use this video to relax and kick back to. Can be used to drift off to dreamland or to get some work done. Remember that this is an actual neighborhood with actual audio/video and not some computer generated sounds with fake still-picture video overlay. Spring day afternoon

This mathematical derivation hopefully will convince you that the method described is the most direct way to prove this rather complex assertion. -Correction: I state that the sin function has an infinite number of roots. I meant to say zeros.

I promise to stop bothering my guitar fans with piano music. Just lemme upload a few more then I'll be done with those for good.promise.

Commissioned by Marshall Harrison. Brilliantly virtuosic and wonderfully comedic phrases. A few beautiful melodies too! Thanks Maestro Rosenblatt for composing an incredibly fun and exciting etude. Thanks Notion ipad music software for allowing us to hear it.
