Great topics and answers. Thanks for posting these.

Fan letter: I studied composition so long ago it is frightening. However, my one skill these days is improv, but not as a jazz player. The videos are codifying what I sense. They explain what I find is a nifty sound as part of a coherent philosophy. New avenues will be opened. This is terrific fun. For newer musicians, carefully consider what appear to be simple observations. Indeed, practice them until they are instinctive.

Where can I find the video you mention in the "Active and Restive Tones" video that does more about Resolutions? Also, is there a search or tab that can take us to a list of your Theory videos?
TIA! Elliot

Hi Elliot, I think Robert was referring to the previously published video about the Tritone:

I have some videos highlighting pedal techniques. But I think it's time we added one focusing on proper use of the damper pedal. Thanks for the suggestion!
