Let me begin by saying again THANK YOU!!!!!! Dennis Chang for putting this together for us... and thanks to Rino of course! I'm very happy, because this is EXACTLY what I was hoping for after falling in love with Rino's playing at DiJ.
I've just had a chance to get started on his arrangement of "All of Me" and some of the licks were familiar to me from Rino's workshops at DiJ, but I was/am knocked out by bars 17-18, where he uses what I'm going to call a criss-cross arp...instead of the usual up-one-side-down-the-other, he goes down a little, then back up a little, then down again, up again, etc. it really sparkles! and almost reminds me of a bluegrass banjo.
This was new to me, was it to you?
and needless to say, I plan to work on using this approach on all my arps.
Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."
Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."
Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
