For decades I've been completely fascinated with JJ's work especially with Holdsworth and how he fluidly both holds the bottom while at the same time plays moving tones, scales. chords and other phrases. Well I've decided to take the plunge and start learning and practicing some of Holdsworth's material starting with "The Things You See..." from the All Night Wrong CD. So far I'm cool with the basic movement of the song and the progressions but as I listen to J Johnson it sounds like he's moving thru the chord changes using the associated scales, modal and chordal tones to fit each movement in a free flowing fashion. So I'm wondering what would be the best approach to getting comfortable with shifting in and out of each chord as Allan does so effortlessly? Oh, and AH will be in Chicago April 1st 2012 and I want to be able to follow Jimmy Haslips playing (he's also totally amazing).
