Duh. I don't know why, but I don't see a G flat major scale.

Adam Richards says:

Great video as always! Gb major has always intimidated me, but when you describe as all black keys except for B and F, I'm no longer scared!

Виктор Томилов says:

Philosopher's Stone says:

Nice video. I am trying to learn misty. Sorry i'm a novice, but as you were demonstrating phrases with the Eb/Ab major scale, it sounded really good. When I try it, it sounds bad. Any tips?

Fifikus Fifikus says:

Thanks for pointing out the usage of the avoid note. It is not necessary to avoid it as long as you put it in the right place. Phrasing is very very important and the trick is just to listen and improvise more.

Jacky Hu says:

thanks for your lesson,very useful for my pratice!

Wenjia C says:

Thank you very much Tony. This is absolutely down to the basics and very helpful to me.

Robert Bernard says:

I get very enthused listening to your tuition Tony which prompts me as a beginner to learn. I'm sure you will agree that in order to improve, I need to master the chords and scales. So to get this straight in my mind, are you mentally having to focus on knowing an playing the appropiate scale for each chord as you play the tune? If so, is this based on you looking at a lead sheet first of the chords and deciding what scales or portion thereof should be played for each chord and memorising that before you play the tune?By the way, did I see you in a priests collar in one of your videos? Cheers

Korbin Davis says:

I'm a fairly experienced classical piano player about to get into a jazz band, and I've never learned the Dorian, Mixolodian, Iodian etc. scales. What exactly are those and how can I learn/incorporate them?

Andrew Lim says:
