    Hi Friends!

    I've gone DIGITAL!!

    I'm thrilled to announce 2 exciting new projects that are now available at http://toddjohnsonmusic.com/store.php


    ------------------------------------------------------------


    NEW!

    "Playin' Through the Real Book"
    Downloadable Video Lessons...only $1.99!!



    My newest educational video series "Playin' Through the Real Book" is an exciting new way to learn the tunes that every jazz player needs to know. Whether you are just getting started learning to play jazz, are a more accomplished player who wants to build your jazz vocabulary, or a teacher looking for material for your jazz students, this series is perfect for you!

    In each 10 - 20 minute video, I play through bass lines, solos, and chords for each song, demonstrating each section in "bite-sized chunks", both at-tempo and slowed-down, with brief explanations of what I'm playing.

    Each download also includes a full transcription of the material and a .mp3 play-along track, all available RIGHT NOW and at a price that can't be beat! "$1.99 each!"

    Todd,
    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent idea and learning tool. I downloaded the Bb Walking Bass module to supplement our last lesson on the same topic. The digital download is truly a blessing with 3 in 1... Video, PDF and play-a-long MP3. I wanted to download the comping and solo modules yet as you say that is putting the cart before the horse :)
    Thanks so much.
    Enjoy The Journey,
    Tom

    What exquisite timing for me, Todd--I'm just getting involved in a project that has me hunkered around the Real Book darn near every night. When the compliments start rolling in, I'll make sure you get the blame, er, credit...yeah, credit!

    Great learning tool .I took the nice version of bass and solo on blue bossa. Great solo and sound/video quality. Made it easy to learn the solo and also play along with Todd.

    This is a GREAT method of learning tunes quickly efficently and correctly!

    Keep up the good work Todd and to my fellow TB'ers I would give Todd's video's a big thumbs up!!

    I would just like to add, I have downloaded 6 of Todd's lessons and the third walking bass module. Todd has really done a great job integrating visual and audio presentation and breaking down the lessons in easy to digest bits. All for $1.99 a lesson too! You cannot beat this at all. I highly recommend them.

    Great job!

    Hey Todd, I think the Playin’ through the Real book video lessons are great.The videos are perfect to play along with, helps me dig into the tune and find the groove. These lesson are an essential part of my daily practice routine. Can’t beat the player friendly price either. Keep them coming!

    I have downloaded a few of the lessons and all I can say is WOW. The level of instruction that you get for a mere $2 is second to none. If you want to be a proficient jazz bass player, look no further. Start off by downloading Volume 1 then 2 and you are on your way. The quality of the $2 videos are amazing. Everything is transcribed and the video guides you slowly and step by step. Thanks so much Todd

    Todd is fantastic. I've spent a whole day at a clinic with him and it was an eye-opener, especially the walking bass modules. Wow....
