Good news for the bew DVD of John McLaughlin. It will be avaible really soon, in pre-commande in the Mediastarz web site for Europe, and in Abstractlogix for US. Here is a part of the DVD (soon, you will have a bonus video).
Konokol – the universal system of mastering rhythm without drums is presented by John McLaughlin with Konokol Master Selvaganesh Vinayakram.
The DVD is divided into 6 chapters which bring the student from basic rhythm into the fascinating rhythms of of 5/4 7/4 9/8 etc.
Exercises are explained by John and demonstrated by Selva, followed by improvisations, which include all the exercise material of that particular chapter. You’ll learn through this course how to improvise rhythmically, and how this system can also help in your compositions. In each chapter, John McLaughlin demonstrates on the guitar, the benefit Konokol has had on his life of music. At the lower edge of your screen you will see a western musical score moving in sync to all the exercises, demonstrations and improvisations.’
