"One box pattern won't do what you are asking.   Tell you what, I'll give you my email and you send me a neck diagram of the entire major, minor and, pentatonic scales and I'll show you where you are getting confused and why.…"

Andy Tulenko replied to Michael S. Jackson's discussion Relative Minor and Major in the group Teachers
"No wonder you're confused. I just watched one of the videos from them and he jumps from chord to chord without making it clear he is doing so. He had me wondering what was going on for a couple of minutes. His teaching style is the problem, not…"

Andy Tulenko replied to Michael S. Jackson's discussion Relative Minor and Major in the group Teachers
"2 things, 1. I'd really love to know what program you are talking about. 2. You are confusing patterns with scales (same but different)   I'd be happy to help you out, but going back and forth in a typing discussion takes too…"

Andy Tulenko replied to Valerie Elizabeth's discussion At a deadlock with my students in the group Teachers
"I agree.  I have a pair of young sisters and together, they can't get anything done.  They are too busy telling each other what to do.  Once I split them up (Parents agreed) they started to progress.  Split the lesson time…"

"You're the Teacher.  Sit down and do the metronome work right there with them in class.  When they wander off, stop them and start over.  Use a song they like so that they'll want to get to the end successfully.  Be the…"

Andy Tulenko replied to Valerie Elizabeth's discussion At a deadlock with my students in the group Teachers
"Nothing wrong with Good Riddance.  Its a fairly easy song, even for beginners.  Almost all beginning students have trouble with timing.  It keeps them from the successful accomplishment of many basic practicing goals.  I strongly…"

Andy Tulenko commented on Leanne Regalla's group Teachers
"Terry, Your students problem is fairly easy to solve.  He has no timing skills.  Get a metronome and do some pattern studies for a month or so and I bet that fixes his ability to play.  If you need some help putting some patterns…"

"I use my professionally.  I play at least 1 gig a week, and we are planning on starting more pretty soon. I rent my place so I can't put it on my current insurance.  And if something were to happen (God forbid!) I could walk in to a…"

Andy Tulenko replied to Terry Angelli's discussion Another revenue stream? in the group Teachers
"This can be a very good thing.  I would take the added precaution of insuring each one.  You can get insurance for the lot at a really good price.  I have $20k of insurance on my Takamine and it costs me about $130 a year.  That…"
