I've been through Gindick's stuff - very, very good. Got me going in a hurry. I ordered a coupla tapes from Doug Puls, but the recording quality was so bad, they were unusable. I've got Jerry Portnoy's Blue Harp Masterclass, it's very good at teaching specific techniques, bending, vibrato, etc. but what I need is direction in using these techniques and others while playing. More like the Gindick tapes, but although I like Jon, I think I need a different perspective.
A followup question - I've got some play along CDs that I use during my horrible commute, how do I know if I'm playing correctly? OK, so there's no correct way to play, how do I know if I'm playing in tune, with proper intervals, hitting notes that sound pleasing and improvisation that works? Record and playback? Suggestions, please. Thanks
