Little Tommy discusses proper fretboard fingering after a nice fall haircut….the little clip at the end is from the rehearsal yesterday when we were learning Sting’s tune that he was singing on the show.

Thanks for watching my little stream of consciousness rants people.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Food For Thought”

Chapters
00:00 - Piano playing of strange chord progression


Notes
We have all heard this song a million times….it was a huge hit record. One of Sting’s most genius moments in his absolutely amazing career.

“Don’t Stand So Close To Me” by the Po-lice….

But have you ever noticed how fucking weird the chord changes are???

The end of the chorus literally jumps from an Ab major to a cold D maj that starts the verse

Verse is Dmaj to F# min which is pretty normal….then the chorus jumps to C
#maj to G#maj….. But then BACK TO D??

Its easy to be “weird”….but real genius is being able to do something totally weird and totally unique that sounds completely normal…and is a hit record
