In this collection of excerpts from a recent Skype lesson, Joachim (in France) and I (in California) discuss some groove concepts using the Meters’ tune “Cissy Strut” as a basis.
This video gives a brief glimpse into my teaching style and student experience. You will also see how convenient Skype can be for one on one lessons.
Students get a full screen view as noted by Joachim’s comments in the video. The “cut off” in the video is cause by Skype Recorder and is not experienced during lessons.
