Justin To Do List
« on: January 16, 2010, 11:19:50 am »
So here is my to do list. The order is undetermined, as I fancy doing things really... all valid.

Last updated : September 2014

Major Projects Underway

Monday Blues... Licks!
Almost finished the series until September 2015!! Over a years worth :) Once I finish them all it will be available on DVD for those that can't wait!

Classic Blues Solos
I'm transcribing a lot for a new book which will contain around 50 awesome blues solos, proper tab transcriptions and notes on analysis and performance. Due out March/April 2015 if all goes to plan.

The new Blues Lead Course
I've finished all the plans, now working on the web pages and details and will then film, hope to start releasing the videos (and have the full DVD out) before Xmas. It's now a 30 lesson series and a big improvement on the old course!

More songs!
I'm about to film the next batch of songs from the various songbooks! Just mixing it up as the mood takes me!

Ukulele Book / Lessons
Lessons are on hold until the book is finished so I can make then sync well. The book is awaiting licensing approval, hope it will be out by Xmas.

Updating old videos
Also planning to refilm a lot of the old lessons, did most of the Technique ones already but more to come, as well as updating some of those horrible old song videos!

Major Projects Still to do

Refilm the Major Scale DVD
Modes Course
Refilm the Solo Blues series
Refilm the Aural training lessons (to include the new app)


Lessons to do - good ideas suggested I'll get onto at some point

• Guitar and amp maintenance (probably do with a specialist like Charlie Chandler!)
• Using a looper pedal


Web site development

• Working on a top secret amazing web app, more as it happens.
• Quite a few moble apps underway
• Will be starting kickstarter programs for Android apps too!


Little Fixes and additions...
Hendrix style TAB needed


OK - so please add suggestions - but not ones that are on this list please (it just clutters up the board) I will delete suggestions once they are on this list!

Decided against - no need to keep suggesting please...

• Sweep picking. I'm just no good at it. But I did something similar called mini-sweeps.

• Not going to allow people to upload vids or media to my web site. I already have bandwidth issues. You have to use YouTube. Turn comments off if you don't want to know what people there think - and let people comment here! Easy! And use Soundcloud for audio!

Just tought of something that would be really usefull to me and perhaps many others....

Its forum related - so not sure if it applies.

Thread Subscriptions
On other forums I frequent (RCtech.net for example) - if there is a thread of interest to me - I can subscribe to it, I can either set notifications for new posts or not.  I have a place to go to and catch up on my particular interests.

As an example.....Riff of the decade thread....at one point - when I have time (haha), I'd like to research and listen to some of the songs listed.  By the time I get to this - the thread will be buried and perhaps dead.  If I could subscribe to it (as this feature is called on other forums) - I could get back to that thread quickly.

Another use would be for reference.  Sometimes people provide clear and concise explanations of theory or other....being able to subscribe to these threads would allow to use certain portions of the forum as reference.


I'm not sure if SMF has that plugin.

Just a thought.  Keep up the great work and as always - thank you and the people that help you with this site.

How about adding a place holder for 'Monitors' in your 'Equipment in the studio' section (under Recording Tech)? Maybe you could even use the currently blank RT-105 slot if you have nothing planned for it as yet.

I see from the notes to your Muse/Hysteria lesson that you use Mackie HR824 monitors. It would be nice to know how you arrived at your choice and whether you are still happy with it and would recommend them etc.

dude!
go and check out the stuff that you didn't do...there are loads of categories that empty...i guess that every page has something that you have not done.
you gotta some lessons to complete about transcribing on riffs and on technique and scales and you gotta be creative with the all transcribing thing because it is very very important,it can develop the scales that you are trying to teach us in all of the categories...in one category (transcribing)
and try to make some intermediate course...loads of people need it
hope that you are seeing this messge and try to do the stuff...i cant recomend nothing because you are the great teacher here and not me...so  ;)

take care and good luck
keep doing and being an awesome man and teacher as you are

g'day justin may i begin by saying i have only just started learning and your website ( which i found by chance) is a great tool.

but for the point of this email and that is

i have noticed you are pointing out in your lessons the importance of scales and i have also heard you touch breifly on tones and semi tones

what i am wondering is why you have not expanded on this a little bit to explain that major chords are 1st 3rd and 5th's of the parent scale and minors flattening the third and so on
and further to that explaining that you can work out the scale easily should you get lost simply by counting the 3 tones 1 semitone and so on

once again love your work just thought this may be worth a mention for people who already have some base in theory this maybe obvious however for many that would have their first music theory base from you i thought this may help to demistify things for them cheers.

EAR TRAINING DVD/CD or DOWNLOAD

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SOS
could you place all the ear training lessons on CD/DVD/Download to help us not so gifted ears to hear better,
I am blaming my lack of progress in ear training on the you-tube sound quality & my attempts to tape and repeat on a voice recorder( the reality is I have a poor ear and am in denial!)
Through your instruction I have become very aware of the importance of a good ear and the way that it influences how quickly one picks up new sounds, concepts and new songs, and this in turn determines how long a person stays enthused to learn, practice and progress
(its a cyclic thing!)

SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  make available a quality download of the ear & aural training before I lose the enthusiasm that your lessons have inspired!!

Love your work

OzzyShep
Enjoy your Tassy break!!

Promise to purchase the first 10 downloads & leave my guitar to you in my will!
Its a family Gibson acoustic and yes this ear training is that important to me and I'm sure many others!

Hey Justin! As a bass and guitar player, I think it would be awesome if you, as a veteran guitarist and musician did a lesson on what you look for in a bass player. Thanks for all you do!

She would need rhythm, and I would think that must bass players try to play to loud as well.
This is not a question for the to do list,
Think Justin GF would have something to say as well.

Great! Many interesting things on the list, and I will be looking forward to new additions! Thanks!

One humble suggestion: one or a few lessons on alternative tunings. I really like the old Open G lesson that still floats in YT, but is no longer on the site (as far as I can see). A re-do or elaboration of that one would be much welcome. Open D is another one I would appreciate, that would also be a great combination with the basic slide techniques lesson.

Hi Justin.

Quote
• Chord naming quiz game

Do you mean hearing a chord and trying to recognize it from the list of chords learnt so far, juste like the JUSTIN method in the Beginners course? If so, that is exactly what I am looking for at the moment, because once you did the JUSTIN lessons twice, you find the answer by memory rather than by ear ;)
What I'm planning to do at the moment is encoding the chords from the Beginner's Course CD and playing mp3 files in shuffle... but I think a tool would be much better!

By the way, if you need help in coding it I could give it a try, as I was thinking about doing such a quiz game myself ;)

Best regards.

I saw a post about such a tool in a different topic somewhere here. The tool was done by Bogdan Tanase, and can be found here:
