    He plays great in multiple genres, and yet remembers what it's like to be new and struggling to the degree that he knows how to teach complex ideas in a way anyone can understand. RJ is really one of a kind. I'm sixty, played in bands much of my life yet still learn something interesting from him in every video. Love this channel. Thanks RJ!

    here's a lesson: Put your guitar down and Listen Listen Listen. A good place to start is to listen to all of RJ's demo videos. There is a ton of stuff in those demos to eventually add to your playing. But listen first.

    Like they say about real estate.. Location, Location, Location… The same has always been true with soloing.. Phrasing, Phrasing, Phrasing! Great video, man!

    Great timing! I have been frustrated with my improv chops recently and this vid was well needed!!

    Any tips for soloing in major keys? It's terrifically hard to think up anything that is interesting while playing in a major key (for me); much easier in a minor key or genre-specific song like blues or country. For me anyway…
