  1. Hi!

    Here's a mail I received from Matt Garrison!
    I was looking for news, I had more.....

    "Anyway right now I'm working on something totally new...

    I'm going to publish online an interactive website that will
    contain about 8-10 separate concepts ranging from technique to
    production, from
    rhythm section info to harmony, rhythm to improvisation, and more.
    I've decided to do
    this instead of an instructional DVD because I can post so much more
    information so much
    quicker and really get to issues musicians are searching for and
    concerned about in the
    current environment we live and make music in. It will also grow as I
    grow in the coming
    years finding new ways of performing, improvising, composing, etc.
    I'll constantly update
    the site with that new information

    It's going to basically be a library of info that I've accumulated
    over the past 20 years
    and that which I will acquire in the future as a student, teacher and
    professional musician.
    It's quite deep... I haven't seen anything like it on the web yet.

    It'll require a membership but it's gonna be worth it's weight in gold!
    Also because it will be a membership based site I'll be offering
    all kinds of other cool stuff such as new music for members only,
    discounts on all newer CD's, DVD's, forums, podcasts... you name it!


    The first version will be ready by this Nov-Dec 2005.

    I hope that satisfies your expectations.

    Ok man... take care and spread the word!
    Ciao,
    Matt"

    I don't know you guys, but I'm overexcited by that news, I'll be a member for sure!

    Bye

    Same here. I can't wait for the new additions to his site.
     
  4. Yes me too!
    That's why I asked this summer when I saw everything disappeared from his "future" section....
    Now, he will have a crazy support to expand his music and knowledge. He deserves that kind of things, so talented and creative guy IMO.
    I'll be a member for sure....
