Anybody have any experience with Total Keyboard Wizardry by Jordan Rudess as a program for ramping up rock keyboard skills? Looks like it might be good for me once I get back to intermediate level again.

Thanks for any info,

Jeff

I don't have any experience with it but knowing Jordan Rudess' playing, i'd imagine it would have great methods for building up your technique...

I bought that a couple of years ago. It's got some good exercises in it that helped me realize some of my weaknesses. I still do some of them from time to time. But the real problem with the book/CD for me was me. I didn't spend enough time methodically going through the whole thing lesson-by-lesson.

Aside from my own insufficient discipline, just the few exercises I did pick up from it were worth the money. It's roughly, what, the cost of one lesson with a teacher?
