    Red face Totally awesome, Red!!!

    If I were not already committed to another Sherpa class and several other things that are demanding my time, I would jump on this like a frog on a lilly pad!
    How very kind and generous of you!

    I would jump on this as well but I too am in a Sherpa class and already overly busy with 'life in general'.

    That's a very gracious and generous offer.

    Stay tuned

    Darn! Had this offer come up about a month from now, I would have jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, I doubt I can commit enough time until I get through an early October deadline at work.

    I'm in as well if you still have space. I would love to see how this works and use it to take me to the next level.

    Thanks for the offer and let me know the process for getting in...if space is still available.

    Thanks again.

    Cool! Leedelta, Wolfboy1, kurrykid! The main thing I ask is activity, this was the requirement TrueFire put on this. I understand everyone is busy, and the concept is working on "Shifted Time" so I'm not asking for a specific amount of time, work at your pace and participate in the video comments, student jams, etc.

    I will send Brad an email requesting you be put in my classroom, keep an eye out for the email from TrueFire letting you know you've been enrolled.

    Let's play some Down Home Blues!

    TIM! (tev77) Welcome Back. Glad to see you back around these parts.

    Sorry for the hijack Red.

    Wow, I'm honored to have you guys in my class and I'm excited to get started helping you learn some blues tunes! Most of the lessons, while they are song specific, can be used in many different songs, so they are "universal" if you will.

    I think, at least for now there are enough of you to keep me busy and to make The Boogie Shack a happening classroom. I've arranged enrollment for each of you that said you want in up to this point in the thread!

    I'll be looking for your self assessments.

    Where is the self-assessment located? I don't see it on the site.

    Thanks.

    Red face Hi KidK. et al

    Gadlaw once posted the link to the assessment page in another thread so I am copying it for you here.

    It may not work until Red gets the powers that be to hook you up to Sherpa, but this is the link. Have fun! I know you are going to love this stuff!!!

    Did the assesment, now have to do the video. I think I can justify the time with Red's class more than Frank's as it will fit right in with my band work. Frank is wonderful but no time to focus on that style right now with limited free time for practice. I really need to start getting in at least 5 hours a week practice....that's my goal

    Same here Wolfboy. I got the assessment done and need to do the video. I have a very busy weekend lined up with the kids / grandkids but my goal will be to get it submitted before the end of the weekend (although it will probably be late Sunday, I hope).

    Looks like I missed the train. Would have loved to give it a go.
    Anyway that will happen when the spending account gets refilled sooner or later - at the moment it looks like later, but I'll survive

    Bummer. I missed the bus too. Hope there is a next round.

    Red face I have all my mail delivered here too.

    Now you know why it always pays to check the good old forum at least once or twice each day. My wife left herself signed into her FaceBook account one day this week and when I opened the page, it was already in her account. I respect her privacy and quickly closed it out, but not before seeing a wall post she made to a friend saying that I was "on the computer most of the time."
    I just find that terrible sad, but still, it pays to check into TrueFire things as often as possible.
    Hats off to Sir Red and his kind, generous offer!!!

    Thanks to those who are participating! Sorry I had to limit the number of students, perhaps I will come up with an idea for an ongoing thing for others in the future.

    So far I have really enjoyed Red's Boogie Shack and it has been a help to my lead/rhythm playing. I have picked up some great ideas already that I am able to apply to playing live. I will tell you 2 things about Red's lessons that anyone considering Sherpa should know:

    1) He has a wonderful voice to listen to while learning. It has an almost soothing quality and it feels like, even though he is not in the room with you, that you are truly getting a one on one lesson.

    2) Don't expect to be spoon-fed every lttle chord or lick he is using. The framework is there but you have to pay attention too. My first thoughts on this were....man I ain't got time to figure all this out....my realization is (after going through all the rhythm and lead lessons on 2 songs and taking notes) I am better for figuring out a few parts on my own. Took a cool little IV chord lick and worked it out for the V and I chord and really having fun with it, same with a horn kind of walk down line he demo'd.

    It's a learning process I am enjoying. I would like to go back with Frank in the future (after I'm done with the band thing) and maybe try out a few of the other Sherpas as well but I am currently enjoying the heck out of interacting with Red!
