Shawn Loudermilk“It Could Happen to You” Masterclass
It Could Happen To You Song Study 5Randy's method to go over a jazz standard is with out a doubt the best that is available anywhere on the Internet! Another plus is the way that He explains these songs .......... It Allows you to use the material over any song! This lesson, like all his lessons includes a chord melody with possible variations, the melody by itself, several examples of single-line soloing, just the right amount of Theory with discussion like what scales he uses and where....... Randy does multiple examples of each category......... Again, I have never seen anything as good as his lessons are here anywhere on the Internet!

Fantastic! 5Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant concept and teaching. I love Randy's playing and concepts and teaching. He is so concise and logical in his teaching. Everything makes sense and easy to learn. I can't wait to work with this concept. I'm a semi professional player of many years, and I've never come across this concept before. Just brilliant. Highly recommended. Can't wait for the second part and more classes from Randy. He reveals these secret gems that I find enhance my knowledge and playing.

Robert GannonGuide Tone Lines: Soloing on a “Bird” Blues
A master at practice 5For me this lesson is a perfect example of the way a master builds his craftsmanship. I think guide tones should came before scales not after, as the usual educations advices.
