lacroix 11148@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hey ninja, I dont' know how well you really play or if you're just being overcritical. However, if improvising doesn't come natural to you, I suggest that you should sit down with your guitar and start playing / improvising with no plan in mind, no chord changes, nothing. Just you and whatever mood you happen to be in in that particular moment. Be relaxed and try to enjoy the ride. Keep playing until you hit a nice line, repeat it if you can. Don't analyse it. Throw it away and find another one. Music is about giving, not keeping. It took me a lifetime to be able to grab the guitar and just play, but IMHO that's the way to go. </p>

smoke 11135@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I'll tell you the answer if you will gather a mustard seed from every house where a musician is happy with their playing.</p> <p>Parables aside, you are far from alone. The fact you aren't happy about where you are is good, as long as you don't become overly negative. </p> <p>You asked for tips which are hard to give without hearing you play. I'll offer some general advice with the caveat that I am just another struggling student of music. In no particular order.</p> <p>1. Calm down and learn to love the process of learning. It takes a lot of work to become fluent. If you live 150 years, you'll still find stuff you need to work on. Just relax. Music is supposed to be fun.<br /> 2. In general, musicians need to work on their ear. There are lots of methods. If you have trouble finding one, ask.<br /> 3. Break problems down into smaller and smaller chunks, whatever it takes to solve them.<br /> 4. Learn whatever tune you are shedding to the point of not having to think about it. Kurt talks about this in one of the Gdansk videos. A lot of players just don't know the harmony and melody well enough.<br /> 5. Do a bit of scale work. You could check out David Berkman's Guide to Creative Practicing for some ideas.<br /> 6. Transcribe a few phrases you really love. Analyze them and extrapolate them. Rinse/repeat.<br /> 7. Work on chords and harmony. Check out Ted Greene's site for some of the best chordal stuff you will find on earth. For free.<br /> 8. Play with friends. There is strength in numbers.<br /> 9. Work on your touch and tone. Play whatever it is you are playing with a beautiful sound. Even simple shit sounds amazing when played with great time, touch, and tone. Ask Bill Frisell. </p>

jazznan 11131@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>First of all don't despair, improvisation and jazz are difficult. Like cooking a good home cooked meal, as opposed to picking up fast food. </p> <p>I remember reading an article about how Herb Ellis, I think, played a Charlie Christian solo for like a year on tour and then eventually figured out how to do something different. Maybe what you need is to learn one solo and then try to play variations, fills, etc...until you own it.</p> <p>This book by Paul F. Berliner is one of the best books on jazz I've read, cause it details out the struggles of all these great jazz musicians and their quest to become better improvisers, highly recommend it:</p> <p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Jazz-Infinite-Improvisation-Ethnomusicology/dp/0226043819/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1365006487&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=paul+f+berliner" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Jazz-Infinite-Improvisation-Ethnomusicology/dp/0226043819/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1365006487&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=paul+f+berliner</a> </p>

ninjay 11130@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hey guys, I've been 'playing' jazz for what? Three years now? Seems about right... Yet when it comes to improvising over key changes and making the most out of each chord playing I struggle, a lot! I've studied music theory and I understand everything that is happening yet for some reason my mind will not let me get past this wall. I always end up going back to rhythm and just playing chords but as far as I'm concerned and I'm sure every jazz musician will agree, improv is much more fun. It greatly annoys me that I just can not grasp jazz. Any hints, tips, recommendations or advice as to how you overcame a similar issue would be splendid.</p> <p> - I don't want to be the next Wes Montgomery, I just want to enjoy my instrument.</p> <p>Thanks all! </p>

111 10230@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Great post, daschwarjazz. Not sure i completely agree he'll need to replace the pickups at this stage. You can get great tones from a strat. Its hard to explain but the use of distortion is greatly enhanced by technique. Holdsworth, Eric Johnson, etc all have that sound despite gear changes. There is a certain type of attack/legato/muting/volume pot positioning/ vibrato vibrato vibrato that can bring out that particular sound with most rock set ups. Its hard to achieve the Holdsworth sound with any pedal without that technique. What you said definately maximizes the chances and is great advice. In the end chasing after the holdsworth tone may lead you to your own voice or empty your wallet :). Again, so much is in the hands and ears of the player. Years ago when I read of that period when Holdsworth switched from Marshalls to solid state Pierce amps it was like learning the world was round. We are the sound. </p>

daschwarjazz 10222@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>As it just so happens, Rockett audio designs makes an Allan Holdsworth signature OD pedal: </p> <p><a href="http://www.rockettpedals.com/signature-series/allan-holdsworth-signature-od-boost/" rel="nofollow">http://www.rockettpedals.com/signature-series/allan-holdsworth-signature-od-boost/</a></p> <p>At first glance, and from what I've heard, it's not that functionally different from the Fulldrive pedal. For Holdsworth OD tones, I usually use the OCD, which gives me something similar to his tone on "The Sixteen Men of Tain." It will also give you a reasonable 1970s era Holdsworth tone if you bump up the treble frequencies. </p> <p>As you probably know, Holdsworth has a pretty elaborate signal path (though not as elaborate as it once was), but one thing people tend to overlook is what kind of pickups and strings he uses. His pickups are low-output, and he uses very light-gauged strings. Carvin makes Holdsworth signature pickups, which at one point I had installed in my Gibson 335. For an example of their clean tone, here is a video I recorded last year:</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VOdmETp7ME&amp;list=UUQsVVGfGQOCQ5rQCTEuXf9w&amp;index=10&amp;feature=plcp" rel="nofollow">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VOdmETp7ME&amp;list=UUQsVVGfGQOCQ5rQCTEuXf9w&amp;index=10&amp;feature=plcp</a></p> <p>I'm pretty sure that he doesn't use the Carvin pickups in his own guitar. I believe that they are custom Seymour Duncans, which you can special order for a somewhat hefty sum. As far as strings are concerned, he uses LaBella 9 gauge. Personally I can't stand any string gauge lower that 11s, but it's easier to get a more fluid legato using lighter gauges. </p> <p>Oh, I almost forgot (as you can tell I LOVE talking about gear), Holdsworth changes the potentiometers from 500k to 250k. The 250k pots produce a darker tone, but I don't think the difference is big enough to make the change worth the effort. </p> <p>In your first post you mentioned that you have an ES 175 and a strat. Unfortunately it's going to be very difficult to get a good singing OD without having feedback problems on the ES 175, so instead what I would do is get a set of Seymour Duncan Little 59 humbucker pickups for the neck and bridge positions of your strat (<a href="http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/stratocaster/medium-output/little_59_for_s/)" rel="nofollow">http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/stratocaster/medium-output/little_59_for_s/)</a>, and have a push/pull switch installed for coil tapping if you still want single coil tones. </p> <p>Next week I'm going to record a tutorial on how to get a Rosenwinkel-esque tone using a bare minimum of gear. Once I get it uploaded on YouTube, I'll post a link in the forum. Hopefully it'll be helpful for everyone!</p> <p>If you have more questions, let me know. I could seriously talk about gear all day! Now if only I could get paid to do this somehow... </p>

daschwarjazz 10142@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Between the TS9DX and the OCD, I'd be more inclined to go with the OCD. It's a little more versatile. You also might want to try the Plimsoul as well. For EQ, the MXR pedals are good, as is the Boss GE-7 (Scofield uses one as a treble boost). Last time I checked, Kurt uses an Empress ParaEq, which usually retails for about $250. The ParaEQ is a great pedal, but the Boss and MXR EQs will probably do the trick for you at half the price. </p> <p>The problem with guitar gear is that there is so much of it that it's overwhelming sometimes! This is particularly true when you see a player use an entire effects board filled with expensive pedals or twenty rack units just to get a specific clean or distorted tone. You may think that you have to obtain every component of someone's setup to sound good, but the fact of the matter is that you can approximate most tones with a few pedals and a semi-decent guitar and amp. </p>

daschwarjazz 10126@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>In stock form, I find that the DRRI does not play well with overdrives and distortions. Doing the bright clip mod is a definite must. I also switched to a darker sounding speaker, an Eminence Cannabis Rex, which is currently my favorite. </p> <p>I've never been a fan of RAT pedals, even the vintage ones. However, I built a BYOC mouse pedal (<a href="http://buildyourownclone.com/mouse.html" rel="nofollow">http://buildyourownclone.com/mouse.html</a>) which is fantastic. You can usually already built ones on ebay. You might also want to check out the Fulltone OCD and Fulldrive. Both are capable of getting a Rosenwinkel-esque overdrive, if that's what you are looking for. </p> <p>To be honest, I never use my DRRI if a gig calls for overdrive tones. For that I use an original American Hot Rod Deluxe (the newer Mexican ones sound just fine, btw) that has been modified with some nicer components. Mid and presence controls are a must for me, and a lot of the time I put the mid control on 10 with barely any treble or bass and it sounds great even if I'm at home practicing with the volume barely past 1. If you listen to players with great overdrive tones such as Kurt, Holdsworth, Henderson, etc., you'll notice that their sound is very mid-heavy. The fact that the DRRI does not have a mid control makes it difficult to achieve these kinds of tones. Now, you can modify the DRRI to have a mid control, but getting an EQ pedal is probably a better investment. </p> <p>Now as far as your feedback problem is concerned, there are times when nothing can really be done about it. That said, I find that it helps to position my body in between the guitar and amplifier. I sometimes play with an archtop guitar with a floating pickup, and if my amp is off to either side of me (particularly the right side), I tend to get a lot more feedback than if I stand right in front of it. </p> <p>Finally, if fluorescent lights are giving you problems, you might want to give this a try:</p> <p><a href="http://www.zzounds.com/item--EBTHUMX" rel="nofollow">http://www.zzounds.com/item--EBTHUMX</a></p> <p>Hope this helps!</p> <p>P.S.

jorgemg1984 10121@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>These days I run my tone on 10 and the filter on the rat on 10 always. Then I have a clean dedicated eq and a distortion dedicated eq. These pedals attenuate any extreme sparkle without killing it - the guitar tone knob and the rat filter knob tend to kill sparkle which is very different from attenuating it to my ears.</p> <p>I am a big fan of a post-od active baxandall eq - so you can cut / boost bass and treble as needed and using the full frequency spectrum of the od pedal.</p> <p>I am actually not a fan of the DRRI. The treble is too harsh even after the bright clip mod and a speaker swap imo... The Fender tone stack tends do have too much high mids and not enough low mids. If you get the DUncan Tone Stack calculator, with the bass on 4 and the treble on zero you will not have much low mids but you will still have lots of high mids which leads to a pleasant clean sound (to some) but maybe not enough mids with an od. That's why so many people like TS type pedals with Fenders, the mid-hump they have makes the OD sound much more present... I have a TS pedal where you can change the mid-hump frequency and 500hz (700hz is stock) is great with Fenders. A Dumble type pedal like a Zendrive is also quite fat which is good for Fenders.</p> <p>Good luck! </p>

Poparad 10120@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>A lot of the richness of a distortion pedal comes from the overtones, and with the highs completely killed on your amp, and I'm assuming probably turned down on your guitar, you won't be getting a very crisp distortion. I frequently switch to my bridge pickup that I have a separate tone knob for, set to a full-on bright sound. I also play through a DR amp, which is a great amp for pedals of all kinds. </p>

Chris 10117@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Thank you for your advice Jorge. Much appreciated. I will try getting an new OD Pedal, or experiment using compression and eq with my Rat.. </p>

jorgemg1984 10092@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>That's a lot of questions...</p> <p>1) Maybe you just don't like the RAT. In my case I have a TS with a RC 808 in the same pedal. This gives me both eq and booster which helps a lot. I just sold my custom made RAT and I am getting a new one with the BYOC Fet preamp after it, which will give me eq and booster too. IMO post-eq / boosting helps a lot with distortion pedals... I will also add a mosfet clipping which makes the RAT very OD and two ruetz pots which also help eq a lot. I usually run the filter on max and cut treble on the post-eq and add trhe bass the pedal kills. You might need to try another OD pedals...</p> <p>2) In the jazzguitar.be forum there are tons of excellent feedback threads. The better one is f-holes, that was my route.</p> <p>3) You can use distortion and reverb, plenty of jazzers do that. People go for reverb pedals because they willl give you much more options and controls than your reverb amp... I am not a big fan of spring reverb for example,. I like plate or hall much more. And even in spring reverb the new Hardwire Supernatural, trough youtube clips, sounds exactly like a 63 Fender Reverb. And you don't need all the problems of spring reverb: a lot of amp space, reliability, tanks seem to all sound different, etc... If I had an amp built for me I would put the BYOC Reverb 2, sound great and it's a very small digital reverb, much simpler and smaller than a reverb tank circuit. Fuchs does that too on his cheaper combos and people love the reverb. </p>

Chris 10084@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hello y'all..</p> <p>I am a Student.<br /> I use a Fender Deluxe Reverb with the Treble rolled completely off, Bass at 4, Reverb just below 3,<br /> and Speed/Intensity at 0.<br /> I <u>love</u> how this sounds using either my es 175 or Strat - running clean into the Vibrato channel of the amp. Love it.<br /> Sometimes I use a bit of Delay. I mainly use the MXR Carbon Copy but also have a Boss DD7 and experiment with both of them (not on gigs but in the woodshed) trying to decide which I like better (or if they are both lame). Still things sound great.. Very professional, very clean. I like it.</p> <p>However..<br /> When I throw distortion in the mix my sound just falls apart. I bought an 80s RAT. Still trying to figure out the best way to incorporate it. Even when I find levels I like (Distorion, Filter, Volume), the sound is not concentrated enough. Too many overtones. Advice? Should I get a compressor? Or would an EQ solve this problem? How can I get a good distorted-concentrated sound? What would Kurt do?</p> <p>Using the Deluxe Reverb, how can I get a louder sound out of my es 175 without getting feedback? What would Bernstein do?</p> <p>At the small music school I attend, all the ensemble rooms have massive florescent lights. How can I get rid of the sound of frying eggs?</p> <p>I've always used a touch of Spring Reverb. Even with the distortion on. Is that my problem? Should I kill the Reverb completely? </p> <p>How is the Blue Sky Reverb. The HolyGrail? I never really got why people had reverb pedals if they were playing out of a fender. Huh? Maybe I should try these pedals, they must be good ehh.</p> <p>If you can answer these questions - I owe you a drink.<br /> Best </p>

Redbeard 1760@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yes, Animitta, that&#39;s the one! Thanks for locating it. Maybe Kurt is saving this gem for the vocal album he keeps promising to record. IMHO, however, I love the way it keeps building and building in the instrumental version -- similar to &quot;Comma.&quot;</p> <p>One other new tune I forgot to mention ... the one KR introduced on Dutch television (how lucky Europeans are to find jazz on TV!) ... &quot;Whispers of Love&quot;:</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVnf4dhJGUw" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVnf4dhJGUw</a> </p>
