I found the secret to sounding good in jazz solos (on vibes) (in minor keys)

So, let's take the minor scale (D, in this example)
D E F G A B♭ C D
Now, let's remove the second and sixth degrees.
D F G A C D
Why have we done this? Well, now that those two notes are gone, we have removed all nasty-sounding intervals from the scale. Every note is at least a whole step apart, and there is no tritone! Yay! You now have a completely safe and boring solo!

What's that? You don't want to sound safe, boring, or (to be honest) good? 

Well, look no further than the Double Harmonic Major Scale!
It's... interesting. Just look.
D E♭ F♯ G A B♭ C♯ D

It's honestly a mess, and don't even try to build a chord progression with it. *shudders* I've tried.

Free Classical Online Guitar Course Delcamp

Hello everyone,
From Wednesday, 6 September 2017, I will be starting a new series of lessons corresponding to the first seven years at music school (D01, D02, D03, D04, D05, D06, D07).

My aim is to help isolated amateurs who don't have the opportunity to have a teacher. I ask my forum students to provide help and encouragement to one another. My role as teacher will be to give you a reasonable goal, offering you, while respecting copyright, a repertoire with the greatest possible musical value. I will be illustrating my lessons with audio and video examples for each piece or exercise. Unfortunately I shall only rarely be able to reply to your questions through lack of available time.

Registration for courses at the first three levels (D01, D02, D03) is available to anyone who has posted 2 messages on the forum: a message of introduction and a message requesting registration into the students group.
Registration for the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh year courses (D04, D05, D06, D07) is available only to members who have already posted 20 messages on the forum.


Before accepting a new student, I require these four conditions to be met:
1. You must be registered on the forum with your real forename and surname. To change your username, post a request in the forum: "Your messages to the site administrator".
To register for the lessons and to confirm that you have satisfied the conditions set for participation in my courses, use the thread you are in now: "Conditions for participating in the lessons".

2. You must publicize the 2017-2018 course sessions. Publicize the lessons, for instance, by putting up a notice in the window of your local baker or guitar store. Publicize them on FaceBook, Twitter, Youtube, discussion groups, your blog or website. The more students there are, the more effective the mutual help will be. Mention the lessons to your guitarist friends in conversation or by email.
Here is some suitable wording:

Free classical guitar lessons on the internet
Lessons given by Jean-François Delcamp
The lessons will begin in September 2017 and finish in June 2018.
These classical guitar lessons correspond to the first sixth years at music school.
The lessons are free. They are aimed at the isolated amateur who does not have the opportunity of having a teacher.
The conditions for registration are available on the forum: http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/

3. You must undertake to post the recordings required for at least 7 out of the 10 lessons of the course. If for some reason a student is temporarily unable to keep up with the course, he should let the other students know and catch up on the missed lesson or lessons as soon as possible. If the interruption goes on for several months, the student should alert a moderator of the student group so that the moderator can keep the student list up to date. A student can follow more than one course at different levels on condition that he undertakes to post the recordings required for at least 7 of the 10 lessons of each course. A student may change courses during the year, but in this case he must start by catching up on the lessons of his new course in the proper order. A student who does not complete the course may repeat the same level the following year, but must begin again from lesson 01 of that level and submit new recordings of the required pieces.

4. You must undertake to listen to the recordings posted by the other students at the same level and comment on their work. This involves posting at least one message per week containing encouragement, constructive criticisms, or advice.

Students can ask for help on the forum at any time, whether in connection with the lessons or the working of the forum in general.

New Group

If anyone is interested, I recently created a new group called Percussion Solo and Duet Repertoire. I want the group to store as much percussion repertoire as possible that only requires on or two players to perform. This can also includes pieces that feature a percussion soloist (Ex: Bob Becker's Bye Bye Medley and Emmanuel Sejourne's Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra). Here's the link if anyone is interested in joining:
