    The Fundamentals of Neo-Soul Keyboard is one of the hottest and most coveted DVDs every made. Let's face it, musicians love neo-soul, because it is a genre that posses the smoothness of soul; the improvisational creativity of jazz; the grit of hip-hop; and the head-bobbing phenomena of funk.
     
    You can't get these chords with your neighborhood piano teacher. These chords are "secret" chords that the streets possess and are shared only in underground basement shed sessions. For the first time, these secret chords will be exposed for all of it's funky glory. You get a little over an hour of the phattest neo-soul chord progressions that you hear on the radio or from your favorite neo-soul artists. We spent time in the studio showing the movements, then we took time to chart out all of the movements in a nice score. You get the MIDI files for your tracks and for your virtual MIDI viewer such as MIDIculous. Finally you get tons of theory booklets and resources so that you actually understand what you are playing. The notations are so easy to follow and very simple to understand.

    From coming from a gospel background, we can all agree that musicians love neo-soul and these concepts that we teach can be applied to every urban genre of music from gospel to R&B. If you are looking to finally make some smooth grooves with your tracks and become an urban producer, then this DVD will give you all the tools to produce your first album. If you are getting a little bored with the same chords you've been playing all the time, now it's time totally transform your style by adding a touch of neo-soul to your keyboard playing!

    This is absolutely the most important DVD for beginners. I teach you the number system, which will allow you to play in every key. This DVD will also teach you how to play more urban and contemporary the fastest way possible, especially for bass players and drummers looking to play the keys.
     
    Urban and Contemporary Worship Play by Ear is the quickest way to learn any song by ear. After learning how to play by ear with no one to show me, it forced me to develop an easy and quick process and procedure to learning songs by ear quickly. Many of the musicians, when I was learning how to play, did not know theory nor were they able to explain the process to learning songs. After so many years of finally learning theory, I began to see a remarkable pattern to all songs and I am exposing these secrets to you. By learning these secrets, you will not only be able to create your own music without knowing how to read it, but you will be able to play any song you hear GUARANTEED! "It just cannot get any easier than this......" This is the ultimate DVD for beginners and for musicians looking to get back into playing.

    Now it's time for you to learn the fundamentals of making your playing sound more full, phat, and flavorful. In Urban and Contemporary Worship Play by Ear Volume 2 you will learn the secrets behind alternate voicings, substitutions, advanced progressions, grace notes and most importantly, a ton of passing tones. All of these tools and concepts are the hidden secret tricks that differentiate one musician from another. You ever see a musician seem to play the same chords you play, but for some reason his playing sounds more full? Or have you ever heard a musician back up a singer and he was able to play all kinds of embellishments and chord changes that sound really phat? Well, that is because that musician built a vocabulary of chords in which to pull from. Your problem is not that you cannot play, it's that you need more chords in your vocabulary. That's what Volume 2 is all about! This DVD will build your vocabulary of phat chords, progressions, and passing tones in order to help you sound more professional and more phat. As a special treat, we will begin to introduce you to the tritone as well. Once you have the vocabulary, you will be able to pull from a plethora of nice chord changes and special nuances that will change the way you play instantly.

    Tritone Xtravaganza is probably one of the most important DVDs you will ever purchase as a gospel musician. Tritones are the defining factor between gospel music and other types of music. Many DVDs attempt to show you the usage of the tritone, but no one has taken the time to really focus on it. For a beginning keyboard player, this is such a difficult concept and it takes sometime years to master. I wanted to make a DVD that explores as many aspects of the tritone as possible, but for beginners. In this DVD, the teaching style is very slow and very specific. Many of the concepts are reiterated and reinforced for better learning. This DVD is an absolute must-have for the beginning gospel musician. As an added bonus, we also offer all of the tritone lessons from the Urban Worship Xtreme DVD. After this DVD, you will be well versed in the usage of the tritone and it will take your playing to another level!

    If you want to start right away playing the Hammond organ, this video is for you. It is an awesome video for beginners. Basically, the video outlines the main things you need to play the organ. After this video, and of course some practice, you should be playing the organ. The goal is to get you motivated to play, so that you will have the drive to want to continue. The musicians are local organist out of Alabama, and are very young. They have been playing for years and have that "down-south gospel vibe." They spell out the chords and display them on the screen as well. This is my number one recommendation for beginners. This is a perfect video for beginners. For someone who just want to get started playing the organ. This video will show you all the chords and even outline them on the screen for further reinforcement. As young musicians, we all got started out this way. But now in the times we live in, people are so busy and it's hard for someone just getting started to find someone who will take the time to show them. These videos offer a supplemental solution to your burning desire to play. We all learned this way, but now through media and the internet you have several of options. Message from producers: "We got sick and tired of Videos that claimed to teach you how to play, but only showed the musician "show off". We have Pastors, Children and Little Old Ladies learning from this video. You will get your money's worth from this product. I highly recommend this video for any beginner or anyone wanting to learn new styles."
