I just received my certificate from Gary's course and I scored 91%. I am 60 and haven't been in school in for some time and so this was a real challenge for me and a lot of hard work. It was a wonderful learning experience and considered taking the whole course but at $1,800 reality sets in. Just curious what others scored?

I enjoyed it, learnt some new stuff and I dig Gary's approach.

Congrats Chris, I told you that you'd top the course.

I figured as much Chris your work was really nice to listen to. In fact olhos de gato was a problem till I heard your version and some others to get a feel for the tune. I noticed that some were upset at their grade [not that it matters] but if you did not score high with what you presented I might of gave some credence to to grips on the discussion pages. Again it was a wonderful experience to see music the way Gary Burton analyzes and hears music.

Well I guess it shows I have some important work left to do. We, as humans, share 99% of our genes with bonobos and chimpanzees, and look where that last 1 procent has taken us. smile

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement.

Now off to prepare for my two weeks at the Aebersold camp. One Two Three Four . . .

Hey, Chris!

My bass player, Allan Gabel, is also going to the camp. Look him up if you get the chance - I also told him you would be there and to look you up. sickI'm green with envy . . .
