    30 Funk Rhythms You MUST Know, my latest TrueFire course, is here!

    I love this course!! The rhythms are so much fun to play, Steve Jenkins played his a$$ on it and Toontrack EZDrummer2 was just so great to use. Best of all, my up and coming producer son jb2002 had a hand in drum programming. All this might make 30 Funk Rhythms my favorite TrueFire course to date.

    Get it now in my TrueFire Mini Store.

    Jazz Soloing Cover

    My first book, Jazz Lead Guitar Solos [Alfred] was recently reissued! It’s now called Jazz Soloing Strategies and can be purchased through my aStore. I wrote this book in 2002 right after recording Tony C. & the Truth’s Lava/Atlantic release Demonophonic Blues while my first son was rolling around on the floor at my feet. I literally had to write out the music by hand, cut it out and tape it to Word doc print outs and mail it all in to be prepped for publishing – damn, those were days.

    Stone-age production values aside this is a very cool book full of good licks, loads of my infamous anecdotes and features a CD with performance and backing tracks. I had Rodney Holmes on drums, Bill Foster on bass and Zen Zadravec on piano. My good friend Arne Wendt made an appearance on keys as well. Good stuff!
