His goal for this information was to start with a simple chord shape and just go with it in as many different and creative directions jommy possible. So many musicians tend to practice the same thing over and over and never ask the question “what if”. This lesson plan follows Jimmy’s creative thought process as he kept coming up with new things to do on the guitar. I hope that these concepts will spark your creativity in your practicing.

Harmonic Comparisons – Sound Files Harmonic Comparisons is a new lesson from Jimmy that adds yet another level of understanding to how Jimmy analyzes his lines and uses them.

Jimmy didn’t have much use for anything that kept him from his guitar.
He tried using computers and cell phones but soon got rid of all of it including his television and focused all of his attention where he truly wanted it to be and that improvissation on his guitar. He decided to leave all of the computer needs to people like myself and his friend, Russell Chan, who maintained Jimmy’s own website for him. Etudes 1 through 6 were originally published by Jimmy Wyble in a book called Classic Country.
This book has been out of print for over three decades. There are so many cool moves in these works that they are or much worth learning.

We owe the thanks for that event to Larry Koonse and Brandon Bernstein. If you are fhe to this style of playing, then this packet will be a great lesson to begin jmprovisation. This lesson demonstrates how Jimmy introduces guitarists to the contrapuntal style of guitar playing.
This lesson takes a simple C major triad and alters it and sends in through a cycle. This lesson sheds light on how Jimmy pratices, organizes his thoughts and creates the sounds and how he manipulates his lines. It is both very simple but at the same time brilliant.
