This has always been a goal of mine whenever I try to make any headway with my playing, my listening, my groove, my time, or any aspect of my music. I cannot help my learn more when I know the least out of everyone around me. Having an open mind and VERY open ears is essential when practicing anything, and especially so when interacting with other musicians.
One of the greatest things about going to music school (and I should add that I was a terrible student who rarely went to class in the short time I was there) was the opportunity to play with some of the greatest young musicians in the world. We would start jamming at 6pm every day when class was over, and go until the small hours of the morning. It was a non stop learning curve that is still in place today. Every time I walk into a situation with any musician it's a learning experience, and I know I can always come out of the situation knowing something new.
When I was creating these practice loops all of this was on my mind. I want to deliver a virtual practice situation for you where you're able to jam and work on music with world class musicians no matter where you live in the world.
I look foreword to bringing you so many more styles, grooves, and concepts with these loops, and to help as many people as possible build confidence in their playing.
